Award Wining, Ski Loving, Bookworms Vanilla

Greetings from  Les trios valley, France myself Kit, Joe and Lee are currently in France working along award winning ski company SKIAMIS ( on their new menus. Our wonderful head chef Lee and his team have devised menus for Skiamis for the new ski season which starts in a couple of weeks. We are taking Vanilla's passion for fresh produce overseas. Any of you who have skied will know that on a ski holiday you need three basic ingredients, good snow, great food and answers on a postcard please for the third …..

Lee and the team have devised an inspiring menu that can incorporate local produce from the region, we are taking Vanilla’s best practices and skills and teaching the Skiamis team how to keep the guests happy with mouth watering food. Dishes such as Ham Hock and Grain Mustard Terrine, Sweet Pepper and Cashew Lattice, Gateau St Honore and Lemon Posset with Stem Ginger shortbread are now available in Skiamis catered chalets. Check our facebook page for images of the training and snow. The snow out here is amazing, the best start to the ski season in 15 years, soon to be posted pictures of Lee our Head chef donning Skis for the first time in his life……..

The New Hampshire cookbook was launched this week. The Hampshire Cookbook – A Culinary Journey Through Hampshire’  is  to celebrate the local produce and culinary diversity that our county has to offer. All profits will go to the Princess Trust Charity. Lees receipe is Medallions of New Forest Vension on a potato Galette with roasted beetroot,there is even a picture of him looking mean and moody

Great news in that we have won the regional award for best wedding caterer in London and South East, we are pretty pleased about this as going head to head with the big boys in London and winning is great. The final is in London in January, fingers crossed.
