What we did
The worlds first ever ‘Titch’elin Star restaurant, offering a silver-spoon dining experience for babies and toddlers.
Aptly named V.I.T’s (Very Important Tummies), our guests swapped whine dining for fine dining as they were fed an impressive three course meal inspired by star-studded chefs and restaurants from around the world, as well as the eclectic menu that V&Me offer in its baby-food delivery service.
Doormen fitted in suits greeted our miniature guests, and their journalist / influencer parents, before our silver-service waiting staff directed them to their seats (highchairs).
The menu was not what you’d typically expect when you think ‘baby food’:
Edible Garden, chickpea and butter bean purees, black olive crumb, baby cucumber, carrot, radishes and nave. Topped with edible flowers, popcorn shoots and chive cress. Inspired by Le Manoir’s Edible Garden
Taste of the Sea, seabass fillet with jersey royal potatoes, Tenderstem broccoli, lemon foam, rapeseed powder, salt fingers and sea purslane. Inspired by Heston Blumanthal’s Sound of the Sea dish
Berry Cheesecake, deconstructed raspberry and blueberry cheesecake with a berry coulis. Inspired by Gordon Ramsay’s famous cheesecake
(all served individually under a silver cloche, of course! )
The experience was elevated beyond its elegant decor with sensory elements which changed with each course. For example, the room was illuminated with green and blue lighting with underwater themed audio during the fish main course, which was served on handcrafted blue crockery.
In between the main and the dessert, miniature easels and canvas’ were placed on tables along with food-based paint (and broccoli paint brushes!) to encourage our giggling guests to have fun with their food. Unsurprisingly, things got messy… But not to worry, branded tees were provided to protect the artists’ lavish gowns and 3-piece suits.
And of course, no event would be complete without a photo moment. We dressed an egg chair with fresh lemons, apples and grapes for the babies to touch, smell and taste whilst posing for the camera.
