Vegan catering for your French Riviera event

18.12.21

These days professional event catering companies have to give options to satisfy the vegan community, as well as an understanding that a great catering experience doesn't always have to include meat on the menu.

Vegan food has expanded beyond solely serving platters of crudites and it's a wonderful way to highlight southern France's seasonal and organic vegetables and fruit.

Vegans don't eat anything derived from animals - this not only includes meat and fish, but dairy, honey, eggs, milk and any by-products that come from them.

Plant-based menus can be special and memorable. Most of all we aim to serve healthy and delicious food presented with creativity and flavour, with the added benefit of being sustainable. We understand how important it is to choose a professional caterer, therefore we want to ensure your vegan menu is the highlight of your event!

Is vegan food a trend for French Riviera events?

Today, private and corporate events on the French Riviera are definitely reflecting vegan and vegetarian food as a trend. We cater for private suppers, weddings, film shoots, corporate brand activations and more.

So, what options do you have if you want a 'no meat, no dairy' event here on the French Riviera, but you don't want to alienate your carnivore-loving guests who may be upset there's no snails, boeuf bourguignon or sea bass on the table?

Naturally, the event host wants the food to be delicious and their guests to walk away satisfied; you may be surprised to hear them say, "Wow, I can't believe that was all vegan! It was so delicious."

Our ingredients are sourced regionally whenever possible; organic fruits, vegetables, herbs, spices, seeds, nuts and grains.

Plant-Based Menu Sample

Adams & Adams can create a bespoke menu for you ranging from sharing plates to flavourful hors d'oeuvres, salads, mains and desserts. We can tailor-make a hot or cold buffet-style meal, or banquet style dishes.

  • Spiced Celeriac, Leek & Roasted Garlic Tart
  • Kale Salad with Tempeh & Smoked Paprika Croutons
  • Pickled Red Cabbage, Ginger & Pomegranate Slaw
  • Stuffed Mushrooms with Spinach Artichoke Dip
  • Pomelo in Lettuce Cups with Peanut & Sesame Dressing
  • Herbed Wild Rice with Chickpeas, Spinach & Raisins
  • Black Bean Cakes with Seasonal Vegetable Salsa
  • Creamy Carrot Dahl
  • Miniature Cucumber & Poppy Seed Buns
  • Raw Coconut & Cashew Curry with Walnut Mint Raita
  • Sesame Tofu Bahn Mini Sliders
  • Vegan Cheesecake, Raw Chocolate Brownies and Dessert Bar with Dairy and Egg-free desserts
Raw vegan desserts - delicious!

Beyond our reputable culinary services, we promise to provide you with world-class customer service. We strongly believe that the experience you have booking us as your catering company is just as important as the quality of our food we create and serve.

Here at Adams & Adams we gladly accommodate food sensitivities and dietary requests. Please note that due to food preparation at venues such as hotels or private villas we can not guarantee a dedicated allergen-free service whereby the catering facilities onsite don't process nut, dairy & wheat products.

Event Catering On Yachts

26.03.21

One of the fantastic aspects of working with international clients is the range of diverse private and corporate events we are called on to plan and manage.  We deal with everything from intimate private dinners to large-scale cocktail parties and event catering on yachts. 

Adams & Adams is experienced with superyacht parties, whereby we can either provide all the bespoke catering for an event onboard, or work alongside the yacht's head chef as a supplementary catering service.

Who are our catering clients?

Our clients are focused on partnering with us because we offer exceptional catering and personalised service.   We work with blue-chip corporate brands as well as high-profile VIP clientele who want utmost privacy and assurance of quality.

Previous events we’ve worked at include Cannes Lions, Cannes Film Festival, private terraces and superyachts at Monaco Grand Prix, Cannes Yachting Festival, Monaco Yacht Show, gala dinners and numerous private events including weddings, anniversary celebrations and birthdays.

First impressions count, and we want our clients to ‘wow’ their guests so every detail matters.  We can customise menus for :

Why hire Adams & Adams for superyacht event catering?

With over 18 years experience working with international clients, we understand the demands of entertaining and the importance of time-critical decisions. We offer an event management service providing high-quality catering, professional serving staff and excellent rapport with regional suppliers for equipment rental, entertainment and transport.

All superyachts have their own highly skilled chefs on board. However, sometimes the galley size, event numbers and limitations with cruising numbers means that many yacht companies or event planners do outsource catering for quayside parties or static yacht events where the yacht doesn’t leave the port.

COVID19 Secure Catering Service

With travel restrictions happening on and off in the French Riviera region, there is still reluctance from guests to go ashore, preferring the privacy and seclusion of a yacht. 

We ensure every possible measure is taken to ensure a COVID19 Secure experience for our clients, including impeccable food safety standards, secure storage and transportation of provisions, mask wearing, regular hand sanitisation, social distancing with superyacht crew and COVID19 testing if required prior to boarding.  This means we can successfully deliver catering experiences onboard to a safe and comfortable level that meets government regulations.

Event catering on yachts: Adams & Adams on the French Riviera

We can liaise with the yacht’s crew to help you plan and coordinate your food and beverage, tabletop arrangements and decor to elevate your yacht event. Our seamless organisation and ability to work under pressure means you can be assured of top of the line food and beverage, leaving you to focus on your clients and guests.  

We are adept at a range of cuisine styles and can adapt menus to individual tastes or dietary requirements.  Options include business breakfasts or lunches, hors d’oeuvres/appetisers, cocktail platters and grazing tables, multiple course sit-down meals and beverages such as wine, soft drinks, spirits and Champagne.

Contact us as far in advance as possible, so we can collaborate on planning to create a menu that perfectly complements your budget, theme and guest numbers.

French Riviera Weddings

22.02.21

The Côte d’Azur, also known as the French Riviera, is perfectly situated between the Mediterranean and the Alps. It is a stunning region for French Riviera weddings; a dynamic mix of history, a great climate for most of the year, good transport links, impressive architectural points of interest and of course, magnificent landscapes.

Our trusted reputation dealing with discerning wedding clients for over 18 years means we take pride in our attention to detail, personalised service and high-quality catering.

Best Wedding Venues French Riviera

The French Riviera definitely has venues with the ‘Wow’ factor!   However, finding your dream venue can be overwhelming with so many beautiful options.  Of course, you can search via the internet or get recommendations from friends, however Adams & Adams can save you time (and stress) with planning and advice.  

We have local knowledge and have worked with numerous luxury and private venues, so are well placed to advise you what to expect, particularly for different months of the year where there are seasonal considerations.

With our detailed understanding of different venues, we are here to help whether you’re looking for an intimate villa, lush garden setting or a luxurious winery.

Some wedding venues include:

  • Weddings at historic venues such as Le Beauvallon, Hotel Belles Rives or Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild.

  • Magical garden weddings with temporary tent structures, live string quartets or post-ceremony cocktails.

  • Vineyard weddings at charming wine domaines in the Var and French Riviera regions.

  • Beach restaurants with relaxed ceremonies in the sand and seaside dining.

 

Wedding Themes : Destination Wedding Inspiration

The French Riviera is a perfect place for multi-day destination weddings. If you decide to have a destination wedding here in southern France you should take into account if the venue you choose has (or doesn’t have) accommodation; both for the bride and groom, bridal party and guests. If the venue has accommodation, you will save time and money on transportation costs so can put more budget into food and beverage.   

French-themed wedding inspiration can start with ideas on Instagram, wedding blogs or Pinterest; here’s a few wedding themes we love:

  • Romantic nuptials at a medieval chateau in a spectacular location - some have their own chapels - many of the chateaux in the French Riviera and Provence have stunning backdrops that are perfect for wedding photography.
  • A Bohemian wedding with Provençal wildflowers, pared down table settings and eco-sensible furniture.
  • Garden ceremonies with fairy lights, floral arches and guest favours such as miniature bottles of olive oil or artisan products.
  • Beach weddings with Champagne towers, coastal decor and magical Mediterranean sea views.

Wedding Catering On The Côte d’Azur

The number of guests at your wedding has one of the biggest impacts on budget (food and beverage, place cards, floral arrangements, rental equipment such as linens, tables and seating). 

If you’re looking for the best catering for your wedding in southern France, we can ensure personalised service.  We have a range of sample menus, or can work with you to create a bespoke menu suited to your dietary requirements, guest numbers and theme for your day.

Options include but are not limited to:

  • A refined sit-down meal / wedding breakfast
  • A Provençal-style buffet
  • Finger food / cocktail food
  • An on-trend food truck
  • Mobile bar offering cocktails / apéritifs / soft beverages with skilled sommeliers, mixologists or flair bar staff to create custom or classic cocktails, pour Champagne or advise on wine choices.

Finishing touches we can arrange include temporary stretch tent or structural marquees, memorable entertainment, elegant table linens, fine tableware and glassware, floral arrangements, ambient lighting and wedding party transportation.

We will effortlessly orchestrate your special day and liaise with our little black book of suppliers to create a wedding that fits your vision.

Valentine’s Day on the Côte d’Azur

10.02.21

The Côte d'Azur is a romantic region with Renaissance history, beautiful landscapes and of course, sublime food and wine!

Hilltop villages disclose small surprises at each corner: romantic rampart walks, views over the countryside or sea and strolling through flower-filled narrow streets passing pretty churches or medieval fountains.

There is a different atmosphere throughout the year, but if you're looking for a blissful getaway or Valentine's Day inspiration then we think the Côte d'Azur is romantic enough!

Valentine's Day ideas on the French Riviera

Life has definitely had different plans for us all in the past year, so we love any ideas for sharing joy, love and laughter at super romantic gatherings.

Valentines Day is 14th February and while it's not an occasion for everyone, you can still create special memories with your loved ones when going out to eat isn't an option.

How about a micro picnic with macro style? Ideas can include low set tables, vintage picnic baskets, soft furnishings, ambient lighting such as lanterns, exotic table runners, a fresh floral centrepiece, tableware for each person (cutlery and glassware) and food such as a charcuterie board, seasonal fruits for finger food.

Which picnic would you prefer?
  1. A pop-up picnic with pastel linen, chic tableware and simple florals (image: Heavenly Picnics)
  2. A winter wonderland picnic with marshmallows, hot chocolate and cosy rugs (image: Kristin Vald Photography)
  3. A romantic picnic in the garden (image: Inditribe Collective)
  4. A dose of 'vitamin sea' with a boat date and tasty grazing board, inspired by Picnic Fantasy.
  5. A relaxed beach picnic at golden hour with cushions and Champagne (image: VIP Picnic)

We were so thrilled to be included in these fabulous ideas for romantics on the French Riviera!

It's always nice to get press coverage and publicity for what we do here at Adams & Adams. A big thank you to Riviera Insider for mentioning us in their round-up of Valentine's Day which you can read here: https://en.e-rivierapress.fr/post/round-up-valentine-s-day-on-the-french-rivierahttps://en.e-rivierapress.fr/post/round-up-valentine-s-day-on-the-french-riviera

ILTM Cannes: Going virtual

04.12.20

ILTM Cannes would have been happening at this time of year. It's almost crazy to think that a year ago thousands of luxury travel professionals were strolling around the Palais des Festivals and walking the Croisette in Cannes for International Luxury Travel Market (ILTM).

ILTM Cannes is the flagship event in the collection where high-end buyers, suppliers and media all congregate from the world of luxury travel for 4 days of business networking and glamorous parties.

While 2020 has been challenging for many businesses whose livelihoods depend on the buzz and activity within the Cannes events industry, the event organisers REED Exhibitions decided to postpone the ILTM 2020 physical event.

The good news, is that buyers and delegates could meet virtually in November and December via the ILTM World Tour - a series of online meetings held in 3 global locations.

ILTM Cannes 2021: Event Catering

Our longstanding local presence takes you beyond corporate catering in Cannes and into the heart of hospitality experiences as no other catering company can.

We look forward to providing event catering for companies attending ILTM 2021.

What: ILTM Cannes 2021

Dates: 6-9 December 2021
