Elton John AIDS Foundation

The weather held out for the Woodside End of Summer Party for the Elton John AIDS Foundation in the grounds his Windsor home.

Guests gathered in the garden for pre-dinner drinks with Urban Caprice offering picnic style canapés from wicker hampers and mini sausages straight off the BBQ alongside performances from Gary Barlow, James Blunt and Sir Elton John himself.

An elegant, temporary glass conservatory with ornate ironwork entwined with vines and creepers set the scene for dinner. Sous vide sea trout with violet artichokes and pickled fennel, was followed by hay baked lamb loin with summer beans, soused girolles and minted sauce vierge.

A chocolate orange cheesecake sphere with orange centre was inspired by the Orangery setting and presented on edible cocoa soil and honeycomb. Peach and almond macaroons were served as petits fours alongside chocolate peach stones and almonds.

After dinner, Fatboy Slim got the guests on their feet in the stunning Grey Goose club ‘La Nuits des Étoiles’ set between the trees in the garden.
