Bring on the Buffet

As you all know, deciding on the perfect tableware for a restaurant can be challenging, so imagine what it’s like trying to come up with the items needed to create an amazing presentation for a large buffet or food display. Luckily, we are experts on both and this Inspire Me page is all about giving you a bit of insight into how we put together concepts for buffet solutions.

THE RISE OF RUM

Last year, Gin was in! Cocktail lounges, bars and even pubs across the UK stocked up on gins from around the world (in all flavours imaginable, some we didn’t even know existed) and extended their gin lists to cater for the demand of this new favourite spirit! Although we think the gin trend is going to stick around for a while, we have, however, noticed another contender creeping its way onto everyone’s cocktail list and that is good old Rum. Whether you like it dark, white or spiced – it seems Rum cocktails are becoming a new favourite, not only in bars but also at food and drink festivals.

White Now

White plates have and will always be in fashion, it’s just sometimes they don’t get as much attention because chefs are looking for something a little bit different. But, what’s not to like; they are classic, they are simple and they can enhance any dish. They are also so versatile and can be mix and matched with almost any colour.

Meet at the Barrelo

One of the most exciting things about being part of the hospitality industry is how fast it moves. Trends come and go, some stick and others don’t but it is always exciting! We have a lot of fun developing concepts for ‘the next big thing’ or the latest craze.

WINTER COCKTAILS

Not feeling Dry January? Us either! Actually, we’ve been busy putting together concepts for Winter Cocktails, as we know this is going to be a huge trend this year. Want to take your bar presentation to the next level in 2019? Then check our latest Inspire Me page for a teaser of what's to come…

We know this time of year is a really busy time for restaurants, pubs and hotels, so our little Goodfellows elves have put together a Chef Gift Guide to save you time and stress when choosing a gift for your brigade! Read on for ideas…

Round the World with Figgjo

Every culture has its own unique look and this can not only be seen in fashion and food but also in tableware too.  

For this Inspire Me, we travel around the world with Figgjo (hypothetically, of course) – looking at East Asian, Japanese, Arabic and Mediterranean styles and how you can create these looks with tableware and decoration!

 

OUR NEW SHOWROOM

As you have probably heard, we have moved showroom to 20 Little Portland Street!

We have been in our new ‘Plate Paradise’ for about a month now and we are settling in nicely. After the rush of the move and the buzz of our Move Party now over, we can finally reveal how we put it all together and hopefully inspire you along the way too!
