The Event

Pocket Rocket was invited to the official launch of Tom Gilbey events at the Guild of Fine Food, about a three-minute walk from Borough Market. The Wednesday-night programme was patterned around Tom Gilbey’s popular Fine Wine Challenges, which open with a wine and canapé reception followed by a blind fine wine tasting led by the founder and namesake himself. The night ended with more drinks and a fantastic British charcuterie spread as guests networked and wound down before heading home.

The Collection

Tom Gilbey’s team and guests enjoyed a Bespoke Collection which featured a balanced, all-savoury mix of Pocket Rocket vegetarian and vegan bites, as well as fish and meat canapés. Crowd favourites included the Grilled courgette with green bean & truffle parcels, Dorset crab doughnuts, and Za’atar lamb leg wraps.

Wow Pocket Rocket Team and thank you. We could not have been more impressed with all that you did to provide and deliver such DELICOUS canapés for our showcase event. Everything you did from advising to delivery was perfect. We didn’t want to unpack the boxes as they were so beautiful. Our guests loved every mouthful and they made our wines sing. Thank you so so much and here’s to the next one. – Tom Gilbey, Founder

The Presentation

The canapés were served on large wooden boards provided by the Tom Gilbey team. These were laid out buffet-style on recycled wooden wine crates for an industrial yet smart feel. Concurrently, staff passed around a selection of canapés while guests enjoyed their welcome refreshments.

Let us help you treat your friends, colleagues, guests, or clients the best way we know how – with exceptionally delicious canapés. Our friendly team are always ready to assist you with orders and answer any questions.
