After a lovely relaxing weekend it's all go again!

Well what a lot of fun was Friday night!  After three days of cooking and making the garden look beautiful we were really excited for the film crew to come and shoot at our 4th supper club.  A huge thank you to everyone that came along and participated in our evening, I have to say we couldn't have had a more perfect group of people, all looking like movie stars!  The setting was perfect, Wayne and the boys spent the whole day hanging tea lights and jam jars from every branch they could find and the canopy of our oak tree when lit up looked stunning!  Thank you guys for all your help, as everyone knows I only take credit for the cooking, the scene setting is never really anything to do with me and I have to say Wayne always makes it look magical.  By the way if anyone would like to rent the space at the bottom of the garden for parties it's available!

Today I am starting to think of the cafe I am running for two days this weekend coming.  It's going to be another busy weekend but am really looking forward to it.  The very dynamic Alison Rentoul is running the The Career & Lifestyle Exhibition  Everyone who is anyone is going to be there.  I am going to do my usual quiches, salads and cupcakes but also we will be doing hot wraps and bacon and sausage sandwiches.  We are celebrating the 1st birthday of FR2DAY two with a few glasses of wine and a canape or too early evening Saturday, all welcome between 6pm and 8pm.

Hope to see you all there.  Bye for now

This time our Supper Club is going to be on TV!

With half of the Film Industry in town, why would Red Radish want to miss out? How do you fancy some great food and the opportunity to become a TV star? That's what is on offer from Red Radish Supper Club next week. Their ‘Secret Supper' on Friday May 21st will be featured in a Travel Channel series in which UK television presenter Joanna Sinnott (Below) journeys from the North of Scotland to Southern Portugal - via the Cote d'Azur! Ok - it's the long way around - but can you blame her?!

Jo will be riding a Triumph Bonneville down through the Mercantour and along the Cote d'Azur, taking in the Cannes Film Festival - and we at FR2DAY intend tipping her off about a ‘Secret Supper' in the hills. The poor woman will have been ‘wild camping' for days - so she'll be famished! What better way to replenish than by gorging from one of Chef Lucy Bird's delicious menus?


We'd love you to join her - don't worry the cameras won't pick up on any bad table manners - they're there to record Jo wolfing down her meal and chatting with whoever wants to talk to her - about her travels, the Cote d'Azur, the price of cheese - whatever you fancy! She's also looking for somewhere to sleep - no houses or campsites allowed - just a piece of open ground where she can park her bike and pitch her tent - how's that for distinctly ‘unluvvie' behaviour?


There are only a few places left for this broadcast ‘secret supper' - it'll be a fun evening - they always are and Lucy is promising a four-course-feast!
Better hurry up and book your table now!

Menu in the making

Sorry I have not put up the menu yet, I have had a busy week working in Cannes doing everything from catering to cleaning!  We have got two very beautiful "shabby chic" apartments in Le Suquet Cannes and have had a mad rush to get them ready for movie type people who are renting them from us.  A few teething problems were quickly ironed out and we now have very happy tennants! So happy in fact they have invited us along to the premiere of their new movie showing tonight in Cannes.  So with friends in tow, all dressed up in "glad-rags," Cannes it will be tonight.

We are keeping everything crossed for the weather next Friday as our favorite place to party is at the end of our garden in Chateuneuf. Wayne, the scene-setter, will be hard at work from Wednesday ordering the staff (photo) around.  I will be putting the final touches to the menu and hopefully will post it tomorrow.  Bye for now and have a great Saturday! x

If your names not down you're not coming in!

Sorry for falling off the radar but life has been 100 mph lately but the good news is we have another supper party date.  But not just any old supper party it's during Cannes Film Festival and it's being filmed!  Weather permitting it will be a candle lit dinner in our garden, maximum 28 people and the dress code will be "dressy!"  Can't give too many details but sounds like it should be a lot of fun!  The date is going to be Friday 21st May.  I will post the menu as soon as I have written it but in the meantime you would like to come to come just let me know.
