Vanilla Catering & Events

Too Busy to Blog !

Just a short note this month to say Hello as we have been so busy lately that keeping you all abreast with the latest Vanilla news has taken a back seat.

September is almost upon, where has the summer gone ? well we know it’s gone with a blast with many events catered for by my wonderful team.

The summer is not over by a long shot though and September will be one of our busiest months ever. We have heaps to look forward to weddings at Beaulieu Tree House, The Tithe Barn, Old Arlesford House, Farbridge Barn and lots of corporate dinners on HMS Victory, including our first parading of the beef…. should be fun

Last month, in conjunction with Hampshire Fare month, we held our Fanatastc Fish courses, led by our fish expert Joe Baker who trained with Rick Stein, Joe demonstrated to his audience that men really can muti task as he gutted, salted, poached, grilled and dressed everything from Salmon to Sea bass. He then bowed out for a few days to attend his own wedding to the lovey Em, thankfully all my chefs are now married so no having any time off mid season.........

It was also Cowes week and we were privileged to cater for Alex Thomson on Hugo Boss once again, great picture of the guys sailing in their designer suits !

Back in the office we have been balancing meetings with weddings and next year is looking very busy for us already, we have weddings as far afield as London, and overseas on the Isle of Wight.

Our corporate bookings are flooding in with Xmas parties, yes all of you who have not yet booked your Xmas  party you need to start thinking about this as there is now less than 4 months to go 

Don’t forget If you book your wedding or banquet with us you are helping our Charity for 2012/3. For every guest you invite to your wedding or party Vanilla will donate 20p to Wedding Wishing Well Foundation which organises and funds Weddings for terminally ill people. Please visit their website for full details of the amazing work they do.


For latest news, gossip and information follow us on twitter or face book, we have some great photos on face book of recent events, Sailors in designer suits and cricket matches in the middle of the Solent ! 


More soon
