I was invited to a local nursery to introduce some three year olds to breadmaking.  I could not believe how enthused they were.  Look at the concentration on their faces.  AND what is more, many of them knew that bread was made from wheat!  Thank you Jade for the invitation, lovely afternoon.

A dear friend of mine dropped off some Manx elderberries.  Having made the syrup I then HAD to make this delicious ice cream.  What a colour, with pure local ingredients - eggs, cream and a tad of sugar....not so local!

At The Children's Centre Open Day held at The Community Farm, we must have made over 30 loaves from Laxey Glen Mills flour which we sold for the Charity.  Fabulous day, meeting so many people of all ages teaching them how to knead the dough....

Here am I at 13,000ft (4000m) on Mt. Toubkal, Morocco, the highest mountain in North Africa....all for a good cause, RIFCOM, a non-profit charitable organisation run by volunteers from Gibraltar and Spain who are committed to making a real difference to their neighbouring communities in the Rif Mountains of Morocco, living within their sight and yet living in poverty.  Incredible experience.

Beautiful pastries, so colourful in the Souk in Marrakech.  I have been there six times now, think it is definitely an annual pilgrimage.  The Berber people of the High Atlas are such a welcoming tribe - always saying you are welcome in their country and they say it from their heart.  Did you know that the wonderful Argan Oil is endemic to Southwestern Morocco used for both its nutritive and cosmetic properties.                                   October 2013

'Meeting' Mary and Paul at the BBC Good Food Show in Olympia, London - November 2013

HRH Princess Anne visited the Island on Tuesday, 21st January 2014 and Vivaldi Catering was asked to supply the Royal Bread. We were truly honoured!

A beautiful wedding in the north of the Island in June 2014 and I was kindly asked to make 150 macarons, 48 brioche, 10 soda breads, 5 pumpernickel breads, large plaited loaf, 30 sundried tomato and black olive scones, oat cakes, flat breads, etc.  It was such fun, a stunning bride, incredible weather, perfect venue.
