From suppertime treats to stylish tableware, The Royal Exchange is home to a host of culinary goodies

02 August, 2019

A memorable dinner party is as much about presentation as it is about the food, drink, ambience and guests. Make your next soiree a night to remember by seeking out some elegant additions to your table from The Royal Exchange.

Welcome your dinner guests in style with a cocktail served in Tiffany’s freshly upgraded barware. The Diamond Point collection has a modern geometric edge and the Old Fashioned glass will lend an air of elegance to a welcome drink.

For tableware worthy of your exquisite culinary creations, look no further than Halcyon Days, whose Aragon Collection is inspired by the legendary Tudor court of Henry VIII and his first Queen, Catherine of Aragon. The modern take on the Chimney Weave pattern interprets the architectural elements of the majestic chimneys of Hampton Court Palace – plates fit for a royal occasion.

Add a touch of contemporary design with Georg Jensen’s sculptural and functional pieces, made in collaboration with acclaimed French designer Aurélien Barbry. The Sky serving board, crafted from smoked oak, and accompanying cheese knife in mirror-polished stainless steel, are a sophisticated and sleek way to present an indulgent cheese course.

Finish the meal with a sweet treat from artisan bakery Cutter & Squidge. The ever-popular macaron is a speciality, and with flavours including pistachio, vanilla, passion fruit, salted caramel, chocolate and charcoal raspberry, there’s something to suit every palate.

Round off the evening with a tipple from Fortnum & Mason’s Single Malt Scotch Trio. The collection includes Fortnum’s five-year aged Islay single malt with delicate and refined notes of vanilla, pepper and violet, a fragrant eight-year aged single malt Speyside with notes of dried fruit and spice aromas, and a rich, malty and complex eight-year aged Highland single malt from the Blair Athol Distillery. Your suitably impressed guests will surely be sent off into the night with a satisfied glow.
