Phew, what a busy but brilliant few weeks we’ve had!
We’ve seen the shop go from looking like this:
It sometimes felt like it was never going to happen, and it took a lot of hard work – but we did it and now it’s fabulous!
The most exciting part of our week though was on Monday, when we worked together with Warwick Books to bring you an event with Richard Burr from last years GBBO. We had two sets of keen bakers bringing their buns to be tasted and judged. I’ve never seen such a fantastic range of delicious sweet (and savoury) treats. The bakers were given a demonstration of how to make Richards delicious Challah Rolls, had a go themselves, then we all sat down for a cup of tea and Richard gave us all the goss on the GBBO tent and contestants – and his top baking tips of course! Everyone left full and happy with their own signed copy of his brilliant BIY book!
Fantastic photographer Martin Sean was there to capture it all, see his wonderful photos here: http://www.martinsean.co.uk/food/
It was brilliant working with Warwick Books and we’re hoping to bring you similar events in the future. So watch this space!
The kitchen is now fully open and functioning for business. We’re taking bookings for hen parties, stag dos, special birthdays, children’s parties and workshops over the next few months. If you’d like to get a group of friends together, learn a new dish or menu then all sit down together and enjoy it, get in touch! We are also in the process of putting together some great cookery classes which will be ready really soon , I’ll be sending out all the information on them over the next couple of weeks.
