The first thought that came to my mind when I was viewing the horsebox, when buying, was ‘it is a perfect fit for Burghley House events’. Once we bought it, we executed the whole branding to provide something different, a genuine story so far and with an aim to provide aWeSoMe food!
Once we were ready, it literally took us a couple of emails to convince the Burghley House events team to invite us to their fine food markets (9 days in total spread throughout the year!) It was just like the universe kept opening the doors we had wished for.
Having done the spring and summer fine food markets, we can proudly say it was a great initial thought to work on! The 3 summer trade days were a total sell out! We we then followed up by attending their Christmas fine food market end of November and everyone loved the food!
Burghley House is where our new product ‘Twisted Indian Quiche’ was launched!
Of course, it was first tested on our prime Banjaraa local Hampton tribe – my family and friends. My kids eat the standard Quiche at least once a week and (me being me) trying to twist and make ‘something different’ all the time – we made about 20 Quiche. We sold 14 and had tasters out of the rest.
I think there is a huge market for this… maybe one day!
We will be bringing our quiche to the Christmas markets around the area, for people to enjoy during the holiday season with their friends and family.
Thank you Kara & The Burghley House team! U R aWeSoMe!
This year, we carried out our first wedding catering, for a lovely couple in Nottingham.
Reshma contacted through our website contact form and asked if we were available to cater brunch for her wedding day. We discussed everything in detail via email as she requested certain things a particular way including eco-friendly cutlery, a cold coffee brew for her American friends and mini wraps instead of the large wraps we do. Everything was confirmed and booked over a few emails and we were really excited to be catering our first wedding brunch!
We liaised with the events team at the beautiful Langar Hall in Nottingham regarding arrival times. On the day, we were met Justin (The groom) and the events manager who helped us direct the horsebox to its location.
At 1030AM, as the guests started to arrive we served hot cardamom Indian Chai and the cold coffee brew. We also served mini wrap with a choice the following fillings:
In their own words on our Instagram page:
"Can’t praise you and the food enough, delicious and such a great set up, Ajay you were wonderful, the guests could not get enough of Banjaraa💛 Reshma & Justin😘"
The best part we enjoyed – Playing our part in someone’s lifetime memories.
We just found another niche we would like to continue to serve.
We wish Reshma and Justin a very happy married life x
Mike from Cambridge contacted us for a summer event for his family & friends in early 2019. After some initial consultation, we invited him to do some mystery shopping at one of our festival events. Him and his wife did visit our stall at Raunds festival, ordered a wrap each and came back after 15 mins and confirmed their booking there and then.
For the party, we provided large 12 inch tortillas with a choice of the following fillings:
This is what Mike had to say about us:
Birthday Party in Glebe Way, Histon, Cambridge CB24 9HJ
"Great food, everyone loved it! 5*
Thanks to Ajay and his daughter for the great food and service at our party. He communicated well, was punctual, served delicious food including vegan. Everyone was complimentary about the food and he helped make this such a memorable event. Highly recommended."
Thanks Mike for having us!
Banjaraa is the Indian street food we grew up eating. It’s simple with bold flavours, an awesome homemade taste and no colouring. The kind of food I would feed my children! We serve our food from a converted horsebox. We are available for events, festivals, corporate gigs, weddings and private parties!
Keeping our tribe informed. Served up stories of our Indian inspired food.
