My 100th Post! Gradually getting used to this Social Media malarky but still need to know how to make more friends!

Yes, bubbling up in the pipeline are plans for another pop up restaurant event. This will be our third, and once again it will be a sparkling event in aid of another great cause. Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Southmead benefitted from our last Pop Up. Our lovely little neighbour spent a few weeks in this wonderful unit following his birth. I am pleased to report that today he is an energetic, chatty and charming little two year old !

At this Autumn 2013 Pop Up, guests were treated to a warm welcome, a glass of Prosecco and Italian inspired canap├ęs. Guests were then seated and the serous eating began! Andyman made fantastic Focaccia bread which included basil, roasted cherry tomatoes and peppers. The bread was served with antipasti, together with Umbrian olive oil (the olives having been picked by us). Main courses included Sicilian sausages with Cannellini Beans and Red Onion Marmalade, Aubergine Parmigiana and Calabrian Seafood Lasagne. Dolce (puddings!) were Panna Cotta’s, Tiramisu and Fig Frangipane Tart. Coffee followed, together with homemade Chocolate Salami.

The guests certainly appeared happy and went away feeling reassuringly full. Thankfully we had no difficult customers and people gave incredibly generously to the charity. As a family we really enjoyed hosting the event.

Currently I am uncertain which country we’ll be visiting for this years menu, but as ever everything where possible will be cooked from scratch using seasonal, local ingredients. I am looking forward to planning the menu and the decorative elements, but can’t say I ever get desperately enamoured with the thought of the furniture shuffling or the washing up!
