To celebrate our 13 year anniversary

We are looking to hold some wine and food matching evenings.

Throughout the months to celebrate some amazing wines from each country or region. We will be holding these events on a Thursday night, one each month. Please find dates listed below. The menu will be sent out by email at the beginning of each month

Our first evening will be a visit to South Africa, our aim for these nights is to offer a menu that will showcase some great wines.

Thank you for all your support over the years to which there have been a lot of changes at the vanilla pod. As you may well be aware I have been working alone in the kitchen for the last 4 years, so I do apologise if I am unable to see you all but you are more than welcome to pop your head around the door into the kitchen, it would be great to see you.

Kind regards

Michael Macdonald
