Is it really six weeks since our last post? Blimey! Time certainly flies when you’re serving paella to all you lovely people!
June and July have seen us exploring new markets (Rode Hall, Horse and Jockey at Chorlton Green, and also Glossop in Derbyshire, where our spirits, and the paella, were a little dampened); taking our paella stand out on the road to Food & Drink Fairs and Arts & Music Festivals; catering at private parties; and planning new events for the coming months.
Highlights have included a baking hot Congleton Food & Drink Festival and an extremely wet and windy Barnaby Festival in Macclesfield, where the queues at each stretched as far as we could see…who says paella’s just for sunny days?
We’ve invested in a posh new gazebo, new burners and even BIGGER pans so we can feed even more of you, even faster.
We then treated ourselves to five days in Ibiza where we soaked up the sun, ate delicious food (including what’s rumoured to be the island’s best paella at a beach bar in Cala Gracioneta) and sampled a few cocktails…purely for research purposes, of course!
Refreshed and re-energised, we’re now ready for what will be our busiest six weeks to date. Come and see us at the following markets and events in July and August:
