Last night we served up a special dinner. Lucky guests were treated to this lovely dessert – an elegant individual apple Tarte Tatin.

Warm, rich and sticky, served with fresh sliced berries, crème anglaise and a hearty portion of delicious Buttertons ice cream.
We added an exciting element with a sweet and crunchy caramel decoration.

These were met with a lot of excitement!

On December 11th we catered for George and Sean’s Civil Partnership.
Heaton House Farm was dressed to festive perfection and guests enjoyed winter
Pimms and Christmas songs.

George and Sean’s adorable Spaniels joined them for the day and added to the fun

Fantastic Feedback

You may remember a few weeks ago, we told you about a fabulous 40th birthday party.

We catered for the private party with a sumptuous and extravagant menu.

This week, we were very pleased to receive some fantastic feedback…

“We are all well, and I had a fabulous party. It was truly special and I will remember it for a long time to come.

Vanilla were amazing. The food was outstanding. A lot of our friends regularly eat out and everyone commented on how much
they enjoyed the food and that it was like dining at a top-end restaurant. The service was seamless, not rushed and our
vegetarian said the food was the best ever. All their staff were brilliant; helpful, polite and willing to go the extra mile
all the time. I would highly recommend them and I would definitely use them again myself.

The table was also absolutely gorgeous (the pictures don’t do it justice)… everyone was taking pictures of it, and no-one
wanted to sit down! It looked so elegant yet sumptuous… it was exactly what I wanted. The flowers were the standout point
of the table… by Red Floral, who were recommended by Vanilla. I gave very little instruction to them, sent them some pictures
of my kitchen, and they surpassed all my expectations. Again, another company I would definitely use again.

I wouldn’t just consider Vanilla for last minute jobs, but for those looking for something very special. The fact I got to speak
to the chef was the key point for me; I knew he could deliver what I was wanting and we came up with the menu together. However,
we also have been to a big event where they catered, and that was excellent too.”

We are so pleased that we could be a part of making this fantastic birthday party extra special.

If you are thinking of hosting a private party or event, feel free to contact us. We’ll be happy to discuss your requirements.

A Thankyou from our Clients

In our line of work we cater for a variety of occasions, some happy and exciting others sad and respectful. Whatever we do, we always strive to provide the ideal service to suit these occasions and compliment them in the best way possible.

This week we received two lovely thank you notes from two very different events. We were touched by both and wanted to share them with you all.

“I would like to thank you and your staff for your help in arranging this event at short notice. Everything about the ‘do’ last week was excellent and just what I wanted. The guests commented on how nicely everything was presented, and the taste matched the presentation. Particularly successful were the chicken sandwiches, chocolate cake and the coffee! Both your staff were pleasant, helpful and efficient – used crockery just disappeared and the coffee & tea pots constantly topped up – please pass my thanks on to them.

Once again, thanks for all your help.


“Hi Adam

I just wanted to to thank you and all your staff for making the wedding such a wonderful occasion.

We got so many compliments on the catering and service, so thank you very much!

Kind regards

Many thanks to these clients for getting in touch to tell us how we did. We always appreciate feedback and these positive comments help to reassure us that we are on the right path.

Moroccan Magic!

Yesterday we catered for a Moroccan themed party at Adelphi in Cheshire.

Moroccan Tea Party

Lucky guests were treated to a selection of fruits including sweet dates, melon and fresh strawberries. We also served a selection of Baklava, a rich, sweet pastry made of layers of filo pastry filled with chopped nuts and sweetened with honey.

Moroccan Tea

Moroccan teas and coffee were served and everyone enjoyed the delicious and unusual food. We rather enjoyed preparing it too!

If you are planning a special party, celebration or corporate event and would like to serve some special food, we can help! Just give us a call.

Some 5 Star Feedback!

Recently, we catered for the wedding of a lovely couple, Louise and Paul. They sent some fantastic feedback-

“I wanted to say a huge thank you for such an amazing wedding. It was so personal and all our friends have said that it was a stunning venue. You have such a fantastic team. Everyone was raving about the caterers, they were absolutely fantastic. Someone even compared the meal to a Michelin star!”

Thanks Louise and Paul! We really enjoyed being a part of your fantastic wedding and we are thrilled that you and your guests were so impressed by our food.
