Nigel Boschetti serves "best of British" menu to Bafta stars at Grosvenor House

A menu celebrating the best of British produce was served to some of the cinema's biggest stars at the Bafta dinner and after party at London's Grosvenor House last night.

"Creating the menu and having the tastings with the Bafta team in the lead up to the night is fantastic and I love that I am able to really use great British produce and give the menu a real British feel - it perfectly complements the awards themselves," he said before the event. " I'm particularly looking forward to have Anne Hathaway with us, she is very of the moment and it's a wonderful privilege."

Served to 1,920 guests in the hotel's Great Room, the menu started with Bradan Orach smoked salmon, pickled fennel, Granny Smith apple, baby watercress and crème fraiche; and was followed by a main course of roasted loin of Bolton Abbey lamb with shepherd's pie, pea puree and glazed carrots. To finish, the dessert was a salted caramel cremeux with Hotel Chocolat 70% chocolate mousse.

Some 200 magnums of Champagne and 1,200 bottles of wine were served to the guests who included Dame Judi Dench, Hugh Jackman and Ben Affleck, as well as Anne Hathaway, who won the Bafta for best supporting actress for her heart-rendering portrayal of Fontaine in Les Miserables .
