Burning the Candle!

The only draw back about having time off both days this week-end was that I've been playing catch up to feed the hungry hordes....but it was so worth it! My other passion besides Cooking and Painting is Riding my horse and I'm afraid he took priority this week-end. So I rode most of Saturday and then spent a manic evening replacing the cakes that were eaten. I had so much to do that I was going flat out in the kitchen but as the adrenalin gets going then so does the output of 'puds'. I then take great pleasure in reeling off the amount I've cooked to my husband, I don't really know whether he listens or not but he looks suitable startled and does seem to say 'Well Done' at the right moment.....years of practice I think, (I've taught him well!).

So nobody was left wanting this week-end although I did run out of White Chocolate which was very bad of me as I'd already made the base for the White Chocolate Cheesecake so I then had to do a wee about turn and produce a very delicious, creamy, tangy Lemon Cheesecake instead. I promise that the White Chocolate is first on my Shopping List this week so don't panic my WCC Lovers!

Pecan Pie and Bake-well Tarts this week I think...I'm in the mood XXX

Really, really busy at the JC this week end which was absolutely brilliant, I felt there was a real buzz going on. Some fabulous people through our doors all keen to try our Delicious cakes, paninis, soup and tray bakes....a hungry lot! I was kept very busy in the kitchen and there seems to be an insatiable appetite for my 'Blondies'...still eating them myself and I must stop that!!

The other very exciting thing that happened or should I say delicious, was Tristram and I tasted the whole menu for our Evening Dining that's happening on the 23rd and 24th March. Robert (Chef Extraordinaire) and his lovely wife, Lorraine came over to the JC last night and we tasted all that was on offer...everything was AMAZING, I ate far too much and LOVED it! Tris and I actually felt a bit like John and Greg from Masterchef.....I've always been envious of their job!

I can't wait for our first evening of Fine Dining, our first evening on the 23rd is now fully booked which is brilliant! My next blog I'm hoping to let you have a wee look at the Menu, you're gonna like! XXXX

Excitement at the JC!

Please, if you haven't visited for a while come and see us, we have some gorgeous new products and some stunning new jewellery on display. Our cakes are still really delicious and I'm always trying out new recipes, it was 'Blondies' this week....think 'Brownie' but with White Chocolate, honestly they very nearly didn't make the Pass as I could have swiped the lot before they were even cooled....soooo good!

Our other very exciting news is that at long last Jammy Coo is going to open its doors for evening meals. I can't wait! We have teamed up with the brilliant and talented Chef, Robert Sinclair and he is devising the most incredible menu....(a sample will follow shortly). Jammy Coo is having particular input on the pudding front though! We have chosen the 23rd of March for our first night and we have 4 tables of 4 to offer and 1 table of 6. So if you're interested and want to find out a bit more please contact asap!

Its going to be a great year with great food and great friends.
