Let’s be honest, a tray of dry old sandwiches or cheese and pineapple on a cocktail stick isn’t going to cut it for 40th birthday party food - you need to pull out all the stops, and Feast It are just the help you need. Indeed, former Blur bassist turned cheesemaker Alex James famously said, ‘My 20th birthday party was all about booze… and my 40th is about food.’ Wise words Alex, we’re sure you’d approve of these themes and their scrumptious accompanying traders.
Best of British
Give your guests the best of British with award-winning perfect pies from Pieminister. What better food to serve at such a party than the quintessential British favourite. Did you know that our great nation happens to hold the annual World Pie Eating Championship in Wigan? Or that pie was made illegal in 1644 by Oliver Cromwell because it gave people too much ‘pagan pleasure’? With carnivorous offerings that use 100% free range British meat, and veggie pies approved by the Vegetarian Society, this really is a good, wholesome brand. Enjoy a variety of flavours, including our favourite, the ‘Matador’ with steak, chorizo, olives and butter beans. Spotify's Cup Of Tea With The Queen playlist provides the best in pie-eating music.
Break out the leg warmers and your Wham! LPs from the back of the cupboard and get ready to party like it’s 1989. Mac To The Future serve comfortingly retro mac and cheese in a mouth watering variety of flavours, from pancetta, chorizo and spinach, to marmite, mushroom and truffle oil… this is no Kraft Dinner. Their mac and cheese is made using the most exquisitely fresh local ingredients, all sourced here in London, and served in retro branded tubs with a dinky wooden fork. Melt into a land of cheese with this truly glorious grub that is sure to be the talk of the town. DeLorean time machine not included.

Wild West Redneck
Get a dose of backyard trailer park Americana - think BBQ, brews and bluegrass. Harley Dogs is a beast of a BBQ, cooked on the back of an iconic Harley Davidson. Despite their badass exterior, Harley Dogs are actually really thoughtful, making everything from scratch using sustainable ingredients sourced from local farms and markets. Dishes such as the legendary triple stacked bourbon burger and the foot long ‘works of art’ hot dogs are sure to keep to guests satisfied (don’t worry veggies, the ‘Halloumi Dreamz’ is a pretty epic meat alternative). Our favourite is the absolute monster that is ‘The Stray Dog’, a 12-incher in a brioche bun, smothered with coriander pesto, sriracha mayonnaise and homemade ketchup.
