This Saturday is Valentine's Day, how will you be treating the special person in your life? Here at Vanilla In Allseasons we believe that a wonderful way to show them how much you care is by cooking up a feast. Whether you bake them a sweet dessert, or a romantic three course meal there are many options to explore. So, we have gathered some of our favorite love themed cuisine.

These red velvet and white chocolate chip cookies are a sweet love themed treat to share on Valentine's Day. Simply add food colouring to your preferred cookie recipe to create this look. You can swap the white chocolate buttons for any other of your favourite chocolate chips, raisins or fruit to create the cookie of your choice. 



There are many complex recipes which you can make to impress your loved one. However, if you are not a fantastic chef, then there are still many options which you can use to express your love. In fact, if you aren't a culinary expert but still make the effort to try, don't worry as it's the thought that counts! A simple egg and toast with a heart shape cut out of the centre is a sure fire way of letting that significant person know you care.



Here at Vanilla In Allseasons we can take the pressures of cooking of your hands. If there is a special question which you are asked this Valentine's Day then do not hesitate to contact us, and we can create the perfect meal for your Wedding!

Bon appetit!















National Curry Week 2014

It’s National Curry Week!

What better excuse to rustle up a fantastic curry as a midweek speciality? Or treat yourself on the weekend and invite your friends and family over? It seems there is never a reason not to put a wonderful curry together! This annual event in October is a wonderful opportunity to experiment with new tastes and spices to create something exciting. Whether you enjoy little, mild or hot spice there is a curry dish out there for everyone!


Curries are fantastic meals to create as they are so diverse. The vastness of curries allows for creativity when making your chosen dish. Remember that there are many areas of the world which produce varied tasting classic curries. Will you stick with the popular options of a tikka masala? Or play it safe with a creamy korma? Why not up the ante with some Jamaican spice and make it hot with a curried goat dish? Or pay homage to South East Asia and whip up a tasty Thai green curry?


Or if you aren’t ready to take on the curry challenge you could show your support for National Curry Week by eating out. There are many recommended curry houses which are featured on the official National Curry Week website here. Simply search for your area and there is a list of eateries suggested for you.

Whether you’re treating yourself to a quiet evening, or spending time with family & friends, make sure no matter what your plans are – enjoy a curry!
