My first hens night of the year to kickstart the many many weddings I’m gonna have this year. The thing with hens party is there is only a limited things you can do so we were cracking our brains for this dear friend of ours. The bride-to-be wanted something tame and just a cosy get together session so we decided to hold the party at Cookyn Inc. Cookyn Inc is an event venue located at Hometeam NS JOM where they hold a various of events or themed parties. It is pretty fuss free cos you just have to tell them what kind of party you are looking at and they will just handle everything from there
The set up that greeted us!
The package includes the usage of a fully-equipped kitchen, a facilitator and a professional in-house photographer, and of course all the ingredients you will require. The cook off contains a 3 course menu which you can choose which cuisine you want and based on their recommendation, we took the Spanish menu which includes Baked King Salmon as appetiser, Seafood Paella as mains and Churros as desserts!
The bride-to-be is ready to cook for us! hee
We also get to make some cookies with the dough already pre-set for us. Actually, we bullied the bride-to-be to make for us while…
We just watch on. HA. Hey, eye power is important too 😉
Just kidding, we all chipped in
And it’s all in the oven for now
Prepping for our paella now
First you butter the pan
Then you stir fry the chicken until it’s all cooked
And then add in the pepsicum, tomatoes, onions and garlic until fragrant
And you add the chicken stock, white wine and rice
And then you add in all the ingredients and spread them as even as possible
And you just cover the pot and simmer
So while waiting for our paella to be ready, we moved on to our appetiser. Ingredients for this dish are basically what you see here
You just combine the salmon and the ingredients, wrap them up and send it into the oven
Preparing the churros dough next
All kinds of shape
And 2 hours of hard work later..
The seafood paella was absolutely delicious. The friends say it’s even better than Pasarbella’s haha
Yay, our cookies are done too!
We customised a set of cupcakes for the bride-to-be too. These pretty and delicious cupcakes are from Outofthecakebox. They sell cakes, tarts and pastries too
So pretty these cupcakes 🙂
Cos only the bride-to-be gets to keep her apron, we decided to make it special for her
Hehe glad you like it!
And a picture of everyone 🙂
I’m glad everyone had fun that day. I really enjoyed the session being hosted by Cookyn Inc. for being simple yet heartwarming. And I’m glad it is a good alternative to other hen’s party ideas. So for those who are planning a hens night for your dear friend, maybe you would like to consider this idea as well
