2020 has arrived here at The Rustic Caterer and we started it with a 30th Birthday party in Catworth, Cambridgeshire. Actually, it was a revisit to the Village Hall in Catworth where we did the catering last year for a two-day wedding. The bride of that wedding is the sister of the lady celebrating her 30th Birthday last week and it was lovely to see lots of the same faces from last year. Fish Pie was on the menu last week which is just the sort of comforting, warming food for this windy, wet January we’re having. For dessert we did a trio, which included a White Chocolate Torte which is a new addition to our menu this year – very delicious but not so good for the January diet! Never mind you only live once!
We are back in Catworth in July for a wedding, which currently, with the blustery days and dark evenings, feels a world away but its surprising how quickly it all comes around.
This week we are catching up with a few admin bits and bobs and I’m going to start planning this year’s vegetable growing attempts. Last year there were some definite hits (potatoes, lettuce, beans, squashes, tomatoes) and some failures (carrots, garlic, chilli, leeks) – so its onward and upward this year.
