Equipping London Event Planners with fresh ideas, news and tips to create memorable events
By Jenny Ramsay, Hospitality and Events Manager
As the cold sets in and mid-winter days are beginning to drag, let’s not dwell on the long dark hours but focus on all that time you have to eat and enjoy the best foods that the winter season has to offer! As food trends change as quickly as fashion does, it’s important not to miss a single morsel of what’s on the culinary catwalks, so we’re here to keep you up to speed with the current trends.
For me, along with the winter wools and knee-high boots, the season brings with it an array of fabulous rich, hearty meals keeping you full and stocked up on all the nutrients you need to keep that flu away.
Our new winter menus at The Deck do just that, with delicious warming dishes such as Buccleuch lamb cutlets with pan haggerty, hispi cabbage and minted green vegetable relish keeping it seasonal and interesting. Let’s not forget dessert either – it might not be exactly healthy but salted caramel is as fashionable as roll-neck jumpers are this winter. So indulge your sweet tooth and check out our winter desserts where you will find sumptuous dark chocolate tart, salted caramel, clementine confit and cinnamon chantilly – not to be missed.
And what better way to get over your indulgent Christmas period than a healthy January kick that everyone who’s anyone will be getting into. You may need your trendy trainers rather than your knee-high boots and just because it’s winter doesn’t mean the raw smoothie craze that is sweeping the nation takes a holiday.
Our Event Chef Jason Wild has come up with this super healthy little number that is bound to get your juices flowing

Here at The Deck we are conscious of our heath and recently hosted a morning breakfast event to promote London Breakfast Week. Luckily for us we had our friend and author Sarah Malcolm come and promote her new e-book all about her healthy recipes for food lovers. Check it out here, follow Sarah on Instagram and keep your eye out for her taste good, feel good recipes, like the smoothie bowl pictured above!
So there it is, there’s a winter food trend out there for everyone this season and whether it is the extravagant desserts or the health-conscious kick that gets you going, you are sure to find your food fashion fix.
