Create Brings the Caribbean to Hyde Park

The Create team brought a little Caribbean sunshine to Hyde Park with this fun-filled barbecue.

Working alongside the team at Image Events, the Create team themed an outside area at Hyde Park venue The Lookout with plenty of bright, bold summer colours to get this London summer party party started.

On arrival guests were treated to refreshing Caribbean cocktails. Our team served a Caribbean Sunset, which combined pineapple puree, lime juice, Malibu and grenadine, and was garnished with fresh cherries and blackberries.

The area was soon filled with the enticing scent of a barbecue on the go. The grill was fully stocked with classic Carribean favourites like Jerk chicken, served with a fiery scotch bonnet sauce and salt and pepper salmon with citrus seasoning.

Our team also served some very popular pulled, smoked barbecue pork, which was accompanied by bacon jam, pickled red cabbage and nacho cheese sauce. Vegetarians were well catered for with our chickpea, shallot and cumin falafel burgers and aubergine heirloom tomato and buffalo curd parcels.

Side dishes were packed full of flavour. These included iceberg and scotch bonnet slaw, gunga peas and rice, sweet potato and garlic salt fries, papaya, mango and lime salad and callaloo.

For dessert, guests tucked into chilli and palm sugar roasted pineapple with lime and mint crème fraîche and dark chocolate delice Cashew nuts, spiced cherries and milk ice cream. What better way to soak up the sun in Hyde Park?
