Bigham’s Food FAQ

Saturday 9 October  6-8.45pm

We kindly request that you prep for all recipes 30-40 mins  in advance of the event. This will allow everyone to cook all  recipes in good time and have fun along the way!

Some prep involves marinading of ingredients so please prioritise any steps that take longer or involve ‘set aside’  times.

General Instructions

  • Store chilled items and fresh veg in the fridge overnight.
  • Read the Before You Start section of each recipe card to  help you prep like a pro.
  • Check Recipe Cards for exact quantities as some may be  needed more than once.
  • Have the Right Equipment to hand for the session, this is  listed with each recipe below.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in  touch with us at banquet@bighams.com
