YUM. You may need to wait until LENT is over as I am a little late with my blogathon.
 
I have so much to tell that I don't know where to start. Marco taught his first ever cookery course and shone. I think he is a natural... our courses are booking up fast and I have been invited to be a Guest Chef at The Stamford Cookery School. All very exciting.
 
 
We have also published our course dates up to the end of August and are busy planning our Touring dates for this summers festivals and food shows. however it is going to be tricky as most of them are planned for the Jubilee weekend!
I am busily researching  aphrodisiac menu's for our 'hen do's' this summer and people are dusting of their winterblues and planning a BBQ with a difference... Yes... we have done it. We have placed an order for a mobile woodburning oven... hee hee! Watch out for us this summer as we tour around with our brand new MIG Mobiiile. We will be able to serve up delectable Italian food wherever we go. If you can think of a good name for it let me know!
