The cold and crisp November day called for warming, hearty food. Our lovely bride and groom, Edward and Emily,
asked us to keep their guests warm and happy with a selection of robust and tasty dishes.
We started with a selection of good sturdy Canapés, or ‘Manapés’ as we have termed them!
nothing too delicate or dainty here!…
Miniature Fish and Chips
Croute of sun dried tomato, caramelized red onion & mozzarella cheese
Peking duck pancakes with hoi sin sauce
Moroccan Lamb skewers with a hummus dip
We followed with a hearty main…
Roast slipper of beef with Yorkshire pudding and a Merlot sauce accompanied by
Roasted potatoes with rosemary and thyme,
Panache of green seasonal vegetables and
Roasted root vegetables
Steaming jugs of gravy were served to each table, no one wants to run out!
We also served fresh handmade artisan breads made by the fantastic folk at Bramhall Bakery.
For dessert, we offered up a ‘his and hers’ option.
For the ladies – Raspberry crème brulee with a citrus shortbread
and for the gents -Sticky toffee apple pudding with toffee sauce and warm custard.
Yesterday, we received this lovely thank you note…
“Just wanted to thank you and your staff for looking after us so wonderfully
well yesterday evening at Edward and Emily’s Wedding celebration. The food
was absolutely delicious and our guests were extremely happy! As for the
canapés- well, what can I say? Next time perhaps it will just be all about
With all the planning involved and the hope that all goes right at the end
of the day, it is wonderful to have the confidence in knowing that Vanilla
will always come up trumps, no matter what is going on behind the scenes! We
can never sing your praises enough.
Thank you again on behalf of our guests and ourselves. A wonderful memory.
With best wishes to you and your staff”
We thoroughly enjoyed this event and it was fantastic to be part of such a special day.
