Vanilla Catering & Events


Half way through February and the wedding season is in full swing, it starts earlier every year.

Our wedding last week at the Explosion went with a bang, a good time was had by all and thankfully the only spirits we encountered were the ones we were selling at the bar !  

This week we are back at my favourite the Tithe barn to see Abi and Mark tie the knot with 150 of their friends and family.

Next week we have the honour of catering for Hampshire fares Party.

Hampshire Fare is celebrating its 20th Anniversary this year and  local food lovers are invited to celebrate this on Thursday 24th February from 6-8pm in Winchester.

The evening, which is hosted by the Guildhall Winchester and our good selves, includes a welcome drink on arrival and seasonal Hampshire canapés. There will also be canapé-making demonstrations by us,  a chocolate decorating demonstration by Chocolate Craft, cocktail making by Lainston House Hotel and wine-tasting with a selection of wines from Danebury Vineyard.

Tickets cost £10 per person. Please call Katy McCaffrey at Hampshire Fare on 01962 846509 ASAP to reserve your tickets,

 Its Valentines Day, Happy valentines Day to all of you

As an aside did you know ?

Aphrodisiac foods include, Caviar, Champagne, Chocolate, Figs, Ginseng, Puffer fish (now that’s just plain weird !) Oysters – (some oysters repeatedly change their sex from Male to female and back giving rise to claims that the oyster lets one experience the masculine and  feminine side of love ! ), radishes (they just give me wind so I avoid them but they obviously work for some people ), and truffles. An ancient lover in Lore was said to have gorged himself to death on Alba truffles during his wedding feast….hmmm you would need a lot of money to do that these days, but if you want  to try it, give us a call and  I am sure we can help you out !.

Don’t forget that for every wedding or three course corporate event we cater for we donate 20p per head to our nominated charity Frank Water ( Every Pound raised for Frank Water Projects gives one person access to clean water for life so the more people you invite the more people you help

Have a good week and speak soon

Sally and the team
