Trust Red Radish for all your Cannes Catering

Bartenders and Hostesses in canne

Red Radish recently supplied the catering and bartenders at a string of A-list parties taking place over two weeks during the Cannes Film Festival. The events were part of a brand activation campaign for Johnnie Walker and Sons Blue Label Whiskey and this is what their company brand ambassador had to say about our planning and implementation.

“Thanks to all at Red Radish for their fantastic support on board John Walker & Sons Voyager, during our stay at Cannes Film Festival.

We had a constantly changing brief, tight restrictions on space and high expectations!

The Red Radish team were quick to establish a close and honest line of communication; they re-established the boundaries of flexibility and delivered beautifully presented, exceptionally tasty food and drink.

The best thing for me is that you can TRUST and RELY on Red Radish in every respect”

A Cannes Lions Festival Party in the Pool!

I just wanted to say a massive thank you for catering for our party during Lions Festival in Cannes. It was a HUGE success.

Your team were so lovely, the food was amazing – we got tonnes of compliments and most importantly we didn’t lose our villa rental deposit for the first year ever… haha!

Have a great summer… I imagine you’re heading to the Cote d’Azur but if you happen to find yourselves in Ibiza in August then I’ll shout you a vodka limon!

French Riviera Catering, Caterers, Cooks and Chefs

So what exactly is the difference between a cook and a chef we hear you asking? The answer quite simply is that we are not actually sure! One thing we do rather sadly know though is that 100% of restaurants in the South of France, particularly Cannes, Monaco and Nice that we visit all definitely have what they call a ‘chef’ and in about 80% of those restaurants we eat and usually end up feeling disappointed by how bad the food was. It is pretty much the same back in the London and the UK. At Red Radish we have both highly trained chefs and experienced cooks and the one thing that we like to think they have all got in common is that they are good, So good in fact that we nearly always  get asked back wherever we go.

‘The books’ describe a Chef as someone who preps and cooks meals in either restaurants or at receptions, villas, parties or events. Their food can often be exclusive to a  region, catering just Provencal for example, and some can be quite specific when plying their trade and deal with individual elements of a meal such as pastries, sauces, soups, salads, vegetables, meat, poultry and fish.

On large scale events, festivals, banquets and weddings, the Head Chef will often be there just to instruct other chefs in preparation, cooking, garnishing and presentation of food as well as managing a team of other kitchen staff responsible for making sure things happen effectively and on time. The Red Radish chefs and cooks often spend weeks planning menus, organising kitchen supplies and making sure they have all the equipment they need to make sure an event goes exactly to plan.

Basically, the next time you need caterers, cooks or chefs for your catering, and don’t want to do it yourself then give Red Radish a call. We are happy to look after as little as 6 guests in an exclusive French Riviera villa, as we are 1000 festival goers in a Greenfield site. Just make sure you let us know if you require a chefs or cooks. We may well end up sending the same people but at least we will know what to put on your invoice! We also promise you won’t be disappointed.

Catering Company in Cannes

The next few weeks get very busy for most Cannes based catering companies as first MIPIM and then MIPTV hit the South of France.  MIPIM, which the organisers bill as the leading international real estate fair, used to be known for its excessive throwing of parties and cocktail receptions, and the drinking of copious amounts of champagne has quietened down a lot since the world property crash, although there are always still enough events to keep many a chef busy preparing everything from gala dinners through to canapé and bowl food receptions. We also often get involved in helping clients find large villas or yachts when they are in Cannes for their corporate events.

MIPTV kicks off at Cannes Palais des festivals (home to the world famous Film Festival) in early April and is one of two Cannes bases events (MIPCOM being the other) where media luvvies from all over the world gather to sell TV and online content.

Being Cannes based and English speaking ensures that Red Radish gets plenty of enquiries and bookings for all the Cannes festivals and we have lots of catered dinner menus and canapé and bowl food lists dotted around our website.

Canapés and Bowl Food Catering for Cannes Boat Show

The Cannes Boat Show arrives in Cannes this week amid a flurry of set building and marquee companies doing a great job setting the scene for this annual yachting event. Being one of the few local Cannes based catering companies speaking both English and French, Red Radish are already committed to catering for a number of parties and receptions during the five day long festival attended by most of the big names in yachting including UK based companies Sunseeker and Camper & Nicholsons International.

As well as the fully catered parties where we will be providing everything from waiters and waitresses, equipment hire, a DJ and obviously some great canapés and a buffet, there are also a couple of simple receptions where there will be a quick and efficient delivery of our great canapés along, of course, with the obvious obligatory cases of chilled champagne. All in all an exciting few days ahead before we then move on to the Monaco boat show which kicks off on the 19th September2012

The Palais du Festival might not be every one’s architectural ‘cup of tea’ but it has to be said that when the sun is shining and the boats are  bobbing gently on the water there are not many better places to hold an event or reception to promote your luxury products. We chose our French base here in Cannes because we absolutely adore everything about the place and although we are looking to be very busy at this year’s boat show we are still able to help with any last minute deliveries of either food or equipment. So if you need an HONEST, EXCELLENT and RELIABLE catering company email Red Radish today.

NB: If the boats (or maybe even the show!) is out of your budget then why not take a peek from the Cannes Ferry that runs regularly between Cannes and the Islands just a few kilometres away – Riviera Lines (www.riviera-lines.com) and Trans Côte d’Azur (www.trans-cote-azur.com) run regular trips from Cannes to Ile Ste-Marguérite. Return fares: €12 adults, €7.50 children aged 5-10, €11 children aged 11-14, over-65s and students). Prices are often cheaper if booked ahead on the internet.

Cannes Lions Festival Lunch prepared for Stink.tv

When Advertising companies go to lunch they REALLY go to lunch and the party chosen by London based Stink was certainly no exception as they gathered with their senior partners and very best clients on the lawn of the most exquisite Cannes rental villa. They were in town for the Cannes Lions Advertising Festival and when it came to choosing a caterer for their event they looked no further than Red Radish.

As well as great food in the shape of a true Italian feast. This is the finished menu our great designer Lynne Spaight quickly put together as just one more little touch to this already creative extravaganza.
