Vanilla Catering & Events

Catering for Hollywood Actors

Another Cowes week over, lots of early starts for the Vanilla team ensuring those race boats got their food on time before they slipped lines and battled their way around the Solent.

We had the honour of catering for celebrities crewing in the fifth edition of the Artemis Challenge .It was a near record-breaking day out for Ewan McGregor, Zara Phillips and Natalie Pinkham, who joined world class skippers for the 50-mile sprint around the Isle of Wight.

Hollywood A-lister Ewan McGregor, joined the HUGO BOSS sailing team led by British round-the-world skipper Alex Thomson.  We had the pleasure of supplying lunch for the boat so you never know the next stop could be Hollywood for the Vanilla chefs.

The wedding season continues and last week in between hob nobbing with Ewan we catered at our old favourite venues including Farbridge, The Tithe Barn and Hill place. We had a real mix last week with everything from a three course sit down, to a hog roast, to an afternoon tea.

Every week we look forward to the postman in case we have won the lottery……..only joking, we love to get letters of thanks and here are just a few we have received this week
