Courgettes and raspberries don’t seem like a winning combination, but just wait until you try it!


“Courgettes and raspberries don’t necessarily sound like a winning combination, but after just one bite, people are quick to agree that it’s a match made in heaven,” says Ben Purton, Executive Head Chef of One Twenty One Two at The Royal Horseguards Hotel in London. “That’s just one of the quirky wedding canapé ideas we’ve come up with at The Royal Horseguards. In fact, we can create a bespoke menu to suit any wedding theme. Our canapés never fail to impress and I would encourage anyone with an upcoming big day to pop by the hotel for a taste of what we can do!”


Ben’s favourite canapé combos!

  • Scottish smoked salmon with crème fraiche, caviar and dill
  • Seared scallops with a slightly spiced mango salsa
  • Tomato and mozzarella skewers
  • Asparagus (when in season) with creamed goats cheese
