A group of press and event organisers were treated to some
seriously impressive F&B at events venue 30 Euston Square, in London last week.
My, was it good to be back at a hosted event!
With the catering provided by Searcys at the Grade-II
listed venue, which is also home to the Royal College of General Practitioners,
young and personable Michelle Truselle was recently appointed as executive chef
and is clearly a special talent. She has a glittering CV including a semi-finalist
place in the 2018 series of MasterChef: The Professionals. Michelle and her
team put on a dazzling display as well as taking the time to join us all. From
the exceptionally tasty and exquisitely presented canapes and bowl food in
generous quantities, to the display of beautiful and tasty desserts, the
flavours were fresh and delicious. Champagne and cocktails flowed throughout.
The evening was cleverly organised as an entertaining Murder
Mystery event put on by Moonstone Murders. The attendees were divided into
groups and led around the venue to interview the suspects and explore the event
spaces. With food and drink stations at each stop, we could both nibble and
imbibe while admiring the venue’s showcasing of F&B options and room
set-ups and attempt to pick up clues. The actors were all great and it worked
as a fun and informative showround of this elegant building with its varied and
flexible event spaces from 300-seat auditorium to 18 meeting rooms, Heritage
rooms and gala dinner set-up before arriving for the sweet treats alongside the
lovely roof terrace.
It might have helped that my group was headed up by general manager Luiz Mazzari, an enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide, and that my plus-one
won the competition by solving the mystery.
This Grade II-listed,
award-winning events venue at the heart of Central London is opposite Euston
station and manages to stylishly integrate a grand Edwardian façade with original
Greek Revival architecture and a sleek and airy contemporary style. It prides
itself on offering cutting-edge AV technology, which has benefited from
investment during lockdown. But it’s worth going for the food alone.
