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 5 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
