Assisted by sons Daniel who heads up the production kitchen in Bedwas with Stuart and son-in-law Dewi, Colin spotted the opportunity to make restaurant quality pâtés, terrines, gravadlax, pesto and chutneys and now supplies a growing list of wholesalers who sell the products onto hotels, restaurants, deli’s and caterers, using locally sourced ingredients whenever possible.
Capital Cuisine’s event catering business (Colin Gray Events and Catering), cater for Weddings, Canapé receptions, awards dinners, cold buffets, hot fork buffets and bespoke event packages to suit individual needs and budgets. It is in these cost conscious times that we can make a difference - you tell us your budget and we will design a menu around it. We do big! Our biggest so far was for 1200 people in the Parc y Scarlets training venue to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Llanelli beating the all blacks, now that was a challenge! We also do small! Small intimate dinner parties or board room dinners is where we bring the restaurant to you!
This family run business has been the chosen partner of the Welsh National Assembly in the development and operation of what was their True Taste of Wales flagship restaurant ‘BLAS’ at major festivals and events throughout Wales and the West. Now Capital Cuisine operate the same style of restaurant with the same principles and ethics under their own steam but still stay true to promoting Welsh produce at every opportunity. If you’ve visited the National Eisteddfod then you would have undoubtedly eaten at the iconic Pl@iad restaurant or maybe in ‘Graze’ at the Hay on Wye literary festival, to name just a few. The latest addition to our portfolio is collaboration with Welsh contemporary home-ware and gifts company bodlon, in our first coffee shop and gifts/home-wares store in Whitchurch, Cardiff, pop in and say hello to Beverley who runs the site, watch this space as we look for more sites!
