Amadeus is celebrating after delivering a successful event for the Birmingham Law Society which saw the team deliver a three-course menu designed by Michelin star chef Glynn Purnell.
The Society’s 200th anniversary Gala Dinner, held at the ICC on the 4th October, saw 600 guests enjoy a three-course meal designed by Glynn, inspired by his memories of growing up in the Birmingham.
Showcasing expertise in large-scale banqueting, the Amadeus team – comprising 20 chefs and nearly 100 front of house staff – delivered Glynn’s vision flawlessly on the night, recreating his impressive dishes for the Law Society guests.
These included ‘A saucy herd on the A38 – GP style’ (corned beef hash croquettes with GP sauce), ‘It ain’t half hot mum, down here at the Triangle’ (Indian spiced lamb, lentil dahl and samosa), and ‘The taste and smell of the fair; not a goldfish or coconut in sight’ (toffee apple and popcorn).

Glynn Purnell said:
“I have worked with Simon in the past on several projects, and regard him as one of the best large-scale banqueting chefs in the business, so the process has been very easy and collaborative.”
