To dine at The Feather Blade’s inaugural catered-event was nothing short of a privilege. They are a catalyst of service and culinary expertise that is rarely found in most mature establishments. Their named-signature Angus steak was a refreshing take on a relatively cheap, inherently lacking and often overlooked cut. Paired with a poached-egg, the perfect char added a heightened dimension of flavor that accentuated the balanced seasoning. Clean lines proportioned and revealed the pink, tender center of the meat. The compliment of side dishes command a certain degree of attention as well. While they were served as sharing portions, they achieved a restaurant-quality standard. The portobello mushrooms were diced in decent portions and served in a bed of cheese and cream, baked until golden brown. The dense and milky texture of the dish was in exquisite contrast with the succulent nature of the beef. The Feather Blade’s roasted asparagus and creamed spinach were excellent takes on classic dishes. Particularly, the crunchy but thoroughly seasoned asparagus side was superb and could have been mistaken for a $20 appetiser at any steakhouse. One consideration that must be made is the preparation of the truffle fries. The abundance of pepper seemed to overcompensate for the soggy texture, in turn compromising the sought-after flavour of the truffle shavings. Dinner concluded with a unique approach to a typical dessert: fresh peanut butter brownies were coupled with a single scoop of vanilla ice cream. This was a sublime culmination to an excellent meal. Overall, the high-quality of service and food resulted in a gastronomical experience that was set apart by the exclusive style of “pop-up dining”. Logistical concerns are to be expected in any catering operation as they do not have the advantage of a restaurant-grade kitchen.
