Over the past 2 years of working in the financial district, I’ve had my fair share of experience with catering events at work lunches, presentation and meetings etc. But none of them can compare to what I recently and unexpectedly experienced few weeks back. Thank you to Elle Cuisine + Team for inviting me to this exclusive tasting – I had no idea how much I was missing out!

There was not one thing I didn’t enjoy about this tasting. Every course from top to bottom was simply divine! I had never a “catering type” tasting like this one and is definitely worth checking out. If you made me pick the one thing I enjoyed most about this tasting, it would be the first course – the lobster soup. Chunks of lobster bits and pieces embedded on a rich and creamy soup – my taste buds were really blown away. Loved it!
