Hello UK - Home at last with some american influences

Home at Last:
Chris and Sara’s Housewarming Party Continuous Passed Hors D'Oeuvres and Stations of Food
***A Whimsical Fusion of Fun and Delicious Delights***
with a bevy of healthy indulgences

After many years of catering for these clients and the fabulous send off party, CuisinEtc was delighted to be asked to cater the welcome home party in Oxford England. We packed up the suitcases and crates with catering equipment and speciality items that are hard to find in the UK and off we went. Once in the UK - Andrew's family, who have been in the hospitality business for a hundred years (english expression for a long time) helped us source equipment and staff that ensured another successful event - even so far from our home base.
