Taste Food and Wine Festival has continued to be a fantastic event for Bitton. This year we gave out more crepes than ever before, sold out of our wonder jam, the Strawberry and Vanilla, and had record sales on our Black Olive Tapenade, all in all a huge increase on last year.
Four of my fantastic staff killed it with giving away samples of my signature recipe, the French crepes with our range of jams, and we worked out that our head chef Chris, managed to cook 110 litres of crepes and used 40kgs of jam to spread on top of them, followed by 20kgs of prawns which had been cooked in our extremely popular Chilli and Garlic Masala. We also repeated ourselves a combined effort of 100 million times - we were explaining our range of Bitton products in our sleep all weekend!
The only problem with Taste is the desperation it gives you to be on the other side of the table and be wandering round in the sunshine sampling some truly exquisite food (we did manage to squeeze in a few tasters and it really was outstanding) The festival has a great buzz with beautiful people wondering around enjoying the great wines and cocktails while trying to balance plates of delights.
In the same weekend we also held at the cafe a large event for a 50th Birthday party, which was a black tie evening across out entire café and outdoor terrace. The place looked beautiful and our canapés were looking pretty good too. We would like to thank Janet Hunter for letting us host her very special party and we wish her a great year.
We would also like to point out that Crocquembouche’s do not mix with humidity – a little learned tip from Bitton, but that’s a whole other story!
