Happy New Year!

Here’s to a much better 2021 for us all.

As vaccines are rolled out and life eventually begins to return to something like normal, it’s predicted that there will be a huge rush for weddings, parties and celebrations. Our diary is already getting busy, so if you are planning the ultimate celebration and require exceptional catering, please book early, particularly for what we expect to be the very busy summer months.

P.S. Thanks for the amazing feedback on our Christmas hampers.
“Huge thanks, so well put together, great products and selections – smiles all round!”
“Just wanted to say a huge thank you – the hampers are absolutely lovely. Everything looks so amazing and I can’t wait to try it all.”

And keep a look out this year for our new Easter baskets full of locally sourced goodies

We hope you have a great & safe 2021.

Our hampers have sold out.

Another record breaking year for our hampers – we are now completely sold out!
We would like to thank all our clients, both old and new for their tremendous support for local food businesses. Also a huge thank you to our wonderful artisan producers for keeping up with our ever growing orders.
Merry Christmas!

BMC BUBBLE FEASTS. 

Love great food? Celebrating weddings, anniversaries and birthdays in a back garden bubble this Summer? Still want to party in style (in accordance with current regulations)?

Outdoor picnics are going to be huge and BMC can make your event both easy and memorable, with modern, local and seasonal food in our Bubble Feasts delivered to your door. How about our 3-course taste of Summer, including our much loved black treacle cured salmon or our Italian antipasti boards, full of lovely charcuterie and cheeses? Maybe spice it up a little with our zingy Moroccan couscous with Ras el Hanout chicken or do you fancy Nordic, Greek, Spanish, Mexican or Brazilian, all with vegan and vegetarian options. Or invent your own theme and we’ll create a menu to suit. We have the highest 5* FSA food hygiene rating and will supply in line with all Covid-19 regulations in force, at the time of your celebration.

Hi Nigel, thanks so so much for making Paul’s celebration so memorable.  The food was delicious and beautifully presented too – everyone commented on it! You, Jim, Helen and Hannah were a pleasure to have around and so professional too! You made it look so easy!!

We hope you use you again in the future!

Best Wishes

What, no plums?

Fans of Lincolnshire plum bread will know it contains no plum!.  So why is it called that?

We’re told by a baker friend of ours it is the process of re-hydrating (often with tea) the dried raisins & fruits, whilst others say its the actual drying of the fruit, or that “plum” is simply a pre-Victorian name for a raisin.

Whatever it is we think it’s delicious with blue cheese such as a Colston Bassett Stilton or Cote Hill Blue, all of which are available in the BMC Christmas hamper.

Shop local, eat delicious!

BMC Christmas Corporate Hamper orders have already smashed last year’s numbers, so thank you all for supporting local.

Clients love that they can choose exactly what they include from a curated selection of local artisan Christmas goodies.  New this year are coffees from Two Chimps, homeware from Katie Cardew Illustrations & jams from Saints & Sinners.  These are in addition to offerings from Lincolnshire Poacher, Stamford Heavenly Chocolates, Infiniteas, Pocklington & Hambleton bakeries & brilliant chutneys from The Bytham Kitchen.

It just doesn’t get more local and festive than that.

Support local, eat delicious this Christmas!

Supporting Local

BMC visited Laura at Two Chimps Coffee in Oakham this week.  Fantastic to meet such enthusiastic & knowledgeable people who are so totally committed to creating brilliant local produce.  Expect to find their wonderful coffee in our Christmas Hampers this year.  Support Local!!

Chocolate Heaven

We love great local food and supporting those who make it.  We’ve just attended a chocolate truffle making workshop @stamfordheavenlychocolates whose handmade products are included in our hugely popular Taste of Stamford Christmas hampers and we can vouch that their workshops are great fun too!!  Thanks Barbara!

Wedding Catering

Just a few pics from a wedding at Barnsdale Gardens a couple of weekends ago, in the pouring rain!  For 80 guests all served in the impressive tipi.

Bruschetta Caprese to start, along with Prosciutto di San Daniele, Salame Felino, Cotto all erbe, Mortadella, Provolone & pickles.  A main course of local British lamb legs, butterflied & barbequed, with a herb & garlic crust or our own treacle cured salmon served with dill, pink peppercorns & pickled cucumber.  Served with side dishes of a salad of fresh rocket with shaved parmesan & aged balsamic, traditional potato salad, roasted red peppers with garlic, flat leaf parsley, sherry vinegar & extra virgin olive oil & a salsa verde.  The vegetarian option was kebabs of courgette, peppers, onion & halloumi.

Torte limone & finally a local cheeseboard: Lincolnshire Poacher, Lincoln Red & Cote Hill Blue accompanied by Modens plum bread & biscuits.
