Preparing 150 Individual dishes for Potential Bride and Grooms

On Saturday we will be welcoming over 20 Bridal Parties which is over 50 lovely guests into Vanilla HQ for menu tastings.

These people have provisionally chosen Vanilla in Allseasons to be their caterer for their weddings and events, and this is our chance to WOW them and show them what we can do and how we can interpret their ideas on a grand scale in preparation for their big day!!

At Vanilla in Allseasons we create everything from scratch and we offer a bespoke catering service – it is very much tailored around what you want to offer your guests thus reflecting your personalities through food.

With this in mind, you can imagine the time and effort put into every single tasting dish by our extremely dedicated, talented and creative chefs, from the sourcing of ingredients ( from local suppliers wherever we can ) to creating menus from ideas on paper into the actual dishes that our clients had imagined! This can only be done by sitting down and chatting to our prospective clients beforehand, understanding their likes and dislikes and finding out more about them and their food tastes and deciding together on the perfect menu for the day.

This is no mean feat when creating so many dishes for so many people with so many different visions all on one day, with just one chance at impressing them.

The tastings are usually a couple of dishes for each course – with the intention of narrowing down to the Perfect Menu – which is very often hard to do when everything tastes soooo magnificent!!
We look forward to meeting you all – Happy Tasting xx

Don’t forget to photograph the food!!

So the big day is finally here! All of that planning and preparation is about to come to fruition.

Budget blown – dress, venue, catering, cars, suits, flowers, hair and make-up and plenty more besides!!

Food has probably taken up a lot of your budget and much thought has gone into the type of meal that you wish to serve to your guests – formal dining, relaxed dining, canapes, evening food – the options are seemingly endless!! Vanilla in Allseasons can help create the meal of your dreams that everyone will be talking about for years to come. Even catering for those guests with special requirements on the day – making them feel that as much thought has gone into the planning of their meal as everyone else – something we pride ourselves on at Vanilla in Allseasons.

Remember to ask your photographer to take some shots of your wonderful food – if you have gone to the effort of booking a brilliant caterer such as Vanilla in Allseasons then food is obviously important to you – make sure it is captured so that you have memories of every single part of your day!!

Let Your Guests Help Themselves

Vanilla in all seasons cater for a range of different events from weddings to corporate functions. Over the years we have become experts at assisting our clients in finding the right tone for there event. Formal sit down meals are always a good choice for a more formal setting however this week we want to focus on something more casual, a buffet style meal can be just as enjoyable as a set menu.

vina_blog22-04-16

Buffets are a good idea for many different reasons, if you have a large amount of guests attending your wedding then a buffet is the easiest way to meet everyones needs. A set menu can be difficult for guests who have certain dietary needs or allergies. A buffet allows guests to take as much or as little as they want of each food group and the food will always be hot as the caterers will frequently bring out fresh food. Guests going and serving themselves at buffets can also encourage social interaction which is a good way of getting people mingling at your event.

Buffets can be decorated with gorgeous linens, floral arrangements, lighting and table design and can create a lovely setting for your food. At Vanilla we source all our meat, fish, vegetables and other key ingredients from reputable local providers creating the finest quality food for your event (see last weeks blog about the importance of local produce). If you’re planning a casual summer event and would like Vanillainallseasons to help you make your day one to remember please don’t hesitate to contact our lovely team.

The Importance of Local Produce

At Vanilla In Allseasons we locally source all of our supplies to ensure that our clients receive the highest standard products at their events. By using local vendors Vanilla provide the freshest possible ingredients for all of our dishes as well as supporting the local economy and reducing our carbon footprint by cutting transportation time.
