It is threatening to be a cold, wet and miserable week but it will be OK! As I write the fire is lit and daughter is preparing from Rick Stein’s “India” recipe book a Lamb & Yoghurt Curry with Yoghurt and Sour Plums (or sour cherries in this case). Not tried this one before but looks promising. Our little deli is warm and welcoming and we have made a particularly tasty and fiery Red Thai Sweet Potato Soup to warm one’s cockles. Our Breakfast Muffins have made a return to the Cake Counter as a nod to a healthy January which are sweetened with a date puree and make a good breakfast with some thick yoghurt and blueberries. On the subject of breakfast, we have been cogitating endlessly about the perfect Granola and whether we should be making our own. There are so many out there, it is quite a challenge to come up with our own version but it’s on the cards so watch this space. I have just eaten a handful of Sour Cherries – they are amazing! What else to do with them? Dark Chocolate & Sour Cherry Cookies coming soon!
Our canapés are made to order in our registered kitchen at The Bakehouse, Steep Marsh in Hampshire. We use fresh, seasonal ingredients which are sourced locally wherever possible and always from reputable suppliers.
Some canapés can be collected ready to be served and others will need to be assembled by us at your home. We can supply dishes for a deposit which will be refunded on return or you can bring in your own. We can also supply staff to prepare, serve and clear the canapés for you.
If there anything you particularly like, do ask us to prepare it for you.
Homemade food but cooked by us! Take some of the pressure off and let us indulge you with one or two of our ready to serve meals.
We will supply everything you need for a delicious picnic at any of our many local summer events from Glyndebourne to evening racing at Goodwood or your school’s Speech Day. All of our picnics serve 2 and are presented in hamper boxes with bamboo plates and wooden cutlery which are all disposable but recyclable.
On those occasions when you want to feed friends and family and find yourself a little short of time or inclination do call us to lighten the load.
We are always happy to prepare anything that you might particularly like for parties big or small so if you would like a chat and a quote talk to
us in the deli or call The Bakehouse on 01730 895255. We can also provide excellent staff and organise delivery of any equipment you might require.
This is a list of some of the items we stock in our deli and others that we have found to be popular with our many customers.
We do appreciate that this can be a difficult and stressful time for you and your family. We provide a complete catering service at your chosen venue and will ensure that everything runs smoothly on the day.
You are very welcome to visit us in our deli or café for a chat and a coffee or do call us to discuss your requirements.
We have included some sample menus but if there is anything at all you would like us to prepare for you, please do ask.
A very Happy New Year to you all from Madeleine’s Kitchen. The children have returned to Uni and schools and missing them but not the mess…. I don’t know about you but I completely over indulged this Christmas. Actually, I always do – my husband informs me I probably have the Labrador gene – I just never feel the need to stop eating. So, a conscious effort is being made at The Bakehouse to produce some healthy but delicious food not only for me but for our wonderful and discerning customers who like me may require a little care and attention in the diet department. Today we are producing two vegan dishes; a new Nut & Root Vegetable Loaf and a return of Kale & Quinoa Fritters which will be in the deli tomorrow. On the other hand we have also been baking the most unctuous and calorific Babka loaves – a glorious mix of bread, chocolate, nuts and syrup. Take your pick!
You can buy many of these as you
wish! They can be exchanged for anything
we sell in our Deli or Café or put towards a dinner, tea party or any event you
can think of. We are happy to send gift
cards to your chosen recipient for a small fee.
