A Feast Fit for a Balbier Bride!

October 30, 2013

This week, we had some exciting guests visiting our tasting room here at Vanilla in Allseasons HQ!
Dynamic mother and daughter duo and darlings of the wedding dress industry, Charlotte Balbier and Amanda Wyatt.

They visited us to sample a selection of potential meals to be served at Charlotte’s impending nuptials to Mr Edward “Teddy” Bedford.

This one looks set to be a seriously fabulous affair! So, what do you serve to the queens of the wedding industry? No pressure!
We were given a free reign to show them what we could do, it was rather like the Master Chef kitchens here at HQ, with our chefs battling out to impress our guests.

We served up a selection of delicious soups…
Jerusalem Artichoke wit truffle oil
Roast root vegetable with carrot crisps
Pumpkin and Parmesan
Pea and Scallop soup

We also served fillet of beef cooked two ways…
Fillet of Cheshire Beef wrapped in Air dried Ham, and braised short rib with Potato fondant sticks, Celeriac and Carrot puree, Merlot jus
Duo of beef, Fillet of Cheshire beef with a shin and shallot pie, baby vegetables squash puree and Merlot jus


We topped it off with a box of sweet and delicate macarons from Mum’s Macarons. We hear on the grapevine that caramel chocolate was Charlotte’s favourite.

So, what will they choose for the big day? You’ll have to wait and see!
