The Lost Blog !

How wierd my last Blog that I posted on 18th March I seem not to have posted , so here it is , another one to follow later today, two blogs in one day how lucky is that .........

The week has flown by again.  Last week we were at Farbridge barn ( For Nick and Laura’s big day. This was our pie wedding which was very appropriate as last week it was National Pie week. The pies went down a storm and a great day was had by all.

Suddenly it’s like London buses as we were are at Farbridge again this week cater for Helen and Stephen’s big day.


Our new combi oven arrived this week, we have named him Thomas so we now have two of these magnificent machines in our professional kitchens. The brat pan arrived, it has been busily caramelising onions making delicious stocks and we are even going to attempt to make  a batch of fudge in it so watch this space to see if this is actually possible ! We provide our fudge to clients complimentary with tea and coffee a


As an aside did you know ?

Fudge is a type of Western confectionery which is usually very sweet, extremely rich and frequently flavored with cocoa. It is made by mixing sugar, butter, and milk and heating it to the soft-ball stage at 240 °F (116 °C), and then beating the mixture while it cools so that it acquires a smooth, creamy consistency. Chocolate can also be mixed in to make chocolate fudge; many other flavors and ingredients are possible.

The fudge we make at Vanilla is very rich very fattening and best of all its FREE when you have coffee with us.

In addition to all our new Kitchen equipment our new refrigerated van arrived to add to the fleet. Any of you who know me know I am not very good at driving, I am a cyclist ( an ex London  cyclist at that: London cabbies Grrrr ) hence when I tend to drive a van the rules of the  road go awol so I tend to leave the driving job to my colleagues.  Our  new van is  huge and can refrigerate enough food for functions up 1200 we don’t have a  name for it  yet so if you want to send  me a few suggestion please feel free to e mail me



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
