Holi dinner, Wembley - help needed!

gembellina | Jan 18, 2012 04:50 AM

Hi all,

My friend has been asked by her boss to organise an evening event in Wembley to celebrate Holi, the Hindu festival of colours. The company is Indian, though my friend is not, and most of the 150 guests (colleagues and their families) will be Indian. So they'll probably have expectations which my friend will struggle to meet as she'd never even heard of Holi until a couple of days ago!

So first question: does anyone know of a place in Wembley that would be able to host this event with decent food? It seems there are plenty of banqueting halls so if anyone has a recommendation that would be great. Or failing that a good caterer in the area? Or have they missed the boat completely, given there's only about 6 weeks to go?

Secondly, can anyone tell me if there are typical dishes served for Holi, so that if a caterer offers a menu she will know what to look out for? Research suggests papri chaat and gujia and lots and lots of sweets!

Thanks all :)
