We have been so busy with work I haven't had time to blog. We are looking at a new exciting venue in Cannes for a "pop-up" supper club. Will check it out and report back. Meanwhile the weather seems to be getting hotter and I need to get up earlier to cook and run. All good fun though. Hopefully will have a date soon so please come back and have a look.

The night was a huge success thanks to the crowd of people who showed up. Such an eclectic bunch, it was a joy for us to entertain you all in your house. Talking of entertaining I thought that Mike and Vonney were fantastic, thanks you guys for bringing your instruments and talent for us all to share. Just wondering now how and when to do the next supper club. We will post a date as soon as we have a plan so keep watching.
Now we are in Cannes and loving it. The beach is a stone throw away and we are right in the middle of Le Suquet. This is the place to "people watch" The character's of Cannes are in abundance here in Le Suquet and my morning run is a lot of fun thanks to the joggers and "folk" I meet along the way. When I lived in Bournemouth I used to run along the promenade a lot of the time and there was a lady who used to pirouette between the two piers everyday, I think she was an ex-ballet dancer but I never thought I would see anything like that again until yesterday when I almost fell over watching an elderly gentleman ballroom dance in his speedo's. He was there at the beginning of my run and still 30 minutes later on the way back happily spinning around and around "toute sol" with not a care to who was watching, I'm going to love living here!

Despite me being busy cooking for a private party tonight and Saturday, the 'Paella a la Plage' enquiries still keep flooding in and we are now fast approaching 50 people for our soiree on the beach. Exciting stuff and we can't wait to meet so many new faces. I will write more when I have time but thanks to everyone for the great support and see you all on Saturday week x

So it's official, our first underground supper club on a beach in Cannes. The theme is simple, Tapas, Paella and Sangria. Thinking of Eton Mess for pudding and the Rose will be included too. Start time is going to be 7pm, guide price 30 euros a head. We will let you know after you have booked exactly where on the beach it's going to be. We have some musicians coming along too which should be fun and a bit of singing if anyone fancies it! We KNOW it's going to be a laugh so please come and join us.
Also after the success of hot wraps etc. at the Lifestyle expo I would like to advertise my Red Radish Mobile Cafe. So if you know of anyone who needs an on-site Cafe for the day or week at any exhibition please let me know. The usual treat's will be on offer. Hot wraps with Brie and Bacon, Steak and Onions and Tuna Coriander and Lime. And of course the cupcakes,brownies and carrot cake. Just a bit of a change from Ham and Cheese Baguette!

I've always wanted to run a little cafe so when Alison from Riviera Coaching asked me to do the catering for the Career and Lifestyle expo in Valbonne I jumped at the chance. As it was going to be visited by lots of Brit's I thought I should do the kind of food us Brit's do occasionally miss. So as one of the children was coming home from boarding school for Half Term I decided to put in a sausage and bacon order to Tesco's to be delivered the day of her flying home. It worked very well and the sausage smuggler arrived home with 150 sausages and a ton of bacon!
Luckily we had our lovely friend Nigel 'wannabe-catwalk-model' Hindle coming to stay for the weekend who actually thought he was going to sit in the sun and relax but I had other ideas! He made a perfect grill chef and spent the whole weekend making bacon and sausage sandwiches, couldn't have done it without him. We also sold a mountain of cupcakes, carrot cakes and chocolate brownies and the steak, caramalised onion and mozzarella hot wraps were a huge hit along with my quiche and salads. So a very successful fun weekend.
Next secret supper dates are coming soon but we are thinking of the weekend of 18th or 19th June and it's going to be on the beach somewhere. Just planning it at the moment and will post the date as soon as we know for definite.
