December at Nelson Street with Inspires Dining

Join us for our first collaboration with the awesome people from Nelson Street.

Inspires Dining Head Chef, George and Louis owner of Nelson Street (currently Louis’ Place) will be behind the pass for four Monday nights during December giving guests a fine dining taste of Christmas in Buckingham.

Guests will enjoy five courses including one of Inspires Dining’s signature canapés, mushroom suet log with truffle mayo, Louis’ crispy duck with watermelon and chilli frosted cashews and finished with macarons from Pure Patisserie.

In addition to a carefully crafted menu, as much attention has been paid to creating a wine flight paring to compliment the dishes for £30 per head.

I am excited for Inspires Dining’s first collaboration, especially with it being with Nelson Street as I have always enjoyed Louis’ style of food when working with him previously. Being based in Buckingham I am also keen to showcase local produce and cook some really good food for people in the local community and beyond.

Five things to expect from an Inspires Dining experience

Cooking and serving the five course Exploration Menu

With years of restaurant experience, cooking and serving for everyone up to Royalty, our team know how to provide a professional service. In this blog, we’ll take a look at five things that you can rely on when you book an Inspires Dining event as well as discovering a little bit more about us and what we believe in.

Restaurant experience at home

Just like when you go out for a meal we do all the shopping, set up, cooking, serving and cleaning for you – the only difference is that you can wear slippers to the dinner table, if you so choose.

So why at home? Why not just go out for dinner? As restaurant professionals we’re passionate about restaurants and the experience they provide; they are usually lively with a unique buzz and atmosphere as well as their choice of food. However, they can also be, noisy, un-intimate and with lots of hidden costs (service, wine, baby sitter, taxi). When you book an Inspires Dining dinner, you’re guaranteed to be the centre of attention all evening; you just pay a set cost and you can give the baby sitter a night off.

Create your own menu with Chef

When booking with us you can choose from one of our pre-set menus and special offers or to make the occasion more unique to you, Chef will consult with you to create a menu with all your favourite elements. For example, allow us to help recreate a memory from a holiday or an anniversary for your dinner party.

If you have a dietary request then you will be all too familiar with “the allergy folder”, which is a pet peeve of ours. We believe that good food should be accessible to all and with our years of experience there are few allergies we’re yet to cater for, so we will create a menu that means no-one will be missing out.

Inspires Dining did ALL the work – from setting up, laying the table, cooking and clearing up to an expert standard.

Professional table service and set up

All packages come with a professional service team as standard. When we arrive we will set up the table for you and bring all the crockery and cutlery we need to serve. Alcohol is not included in the packages but the team will serve your arrival drinks and wine throughout the meal.

Table-side chef interaction

Inspires Dining is born from a passion for creating great food using seasonal produce and most importantly having a bit of fun, so no-one could better to explain the dishes to you than Chef. Food service is an art, with a story behind each dish including the elements and the flavours so our chef will explain this to you. The kitchen is always open, so if you enjoy watching people cook, come in and ask Chef your culinary questions.

Fully insured and five star hygiene rated

We pride ourselves on having high, professional, restaurant industry standards and we want to reassure every customer of this. When you book a dinner with us you can feel safe in the knowledge that we are fully insured and DBS checked. It is important to us that from the very start of our journey our HQ was registered with environmental health and received five stars on its first inspection.
