The boutique London caterer has created The Edible Garden menu specifically for this Lambeth venue, which is quite fitting considering the museum’s green credentials.
Botanical cocktails also help root down the theme
Guests can expect a focus on flowers, herbs and botanical infusions. We particularly like the sound of The Greenhouse (pictured above) – essentially a globed duck-liver parfait that appears more like a tomato, atop lavender and bitter chocolate soil. Other highlights include sashimi-grade tuna with green beans and nasturtium petals, as well as a French fruit tart with mixed berries and edible flowers.
As for the decorations, the Ginger Jar team can source earthenware crockery, dress tables with floral centrepieces and eucalyptus, and use make use of rosemary for place settings. Botanical cocktails (think gin, pressed apple juice and elderflower liqueur) are another option to really root down the theme.
The Garden Museum was recently refurbished too, meaning the original stonework and timber of the Victorian church is now combined with polished concrete, copper and glass. The two spaces available for seated dinners have room for 30 and 120 guests.
