It’s a very busy Summerhttps://www.wentworthpatisserie.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/about-bg.jpg 800 600 Stephen Stephen https://secure.gravatar.com/avatar/d3883de25fbd1f315aaeeaff2eec7f84?s=96&d=mm&r=g
It’s been a few weeks since I last wrote one of my posts and its certainly been busy!
We’ve had the BMW PGA Golf Tournament at Wentworth, shortly followed by Royal Ascot. These are always very busy events for us as many of the visitors pop in and pick up a breakfast or a packed lunch to take with them. We see a wide array of fabulous outfits with customers in the latest golf gear or top hat and tails and beautiful dresses and hats! We love the fashion and all of us in the shop take great interest in what everyone is wearing.
Many of our trade customers love it too. We’re very lucky that many of the hard working building and construction workers in the Virginia Water area and those en route to a job in other parts of the South East of England pop in to pick up food. Many of these folks are great characters and there is always a laugh and a bit of teasing. The girls in the shop can give the banter back as well as they receive it and there’s plenty of laughter and smiles.
Our other big challenge over the last few weeks has been the weather. We’re never going to complain about the heat (much!) but boy does it get hot in the Patisserie. Some days the thermometer has been in the high 30’s. We open all the doors and windows but with ovens and baking equipment constantly switched on, the heat builds up to a high temperature.
Since we launched the new web site, we have seen an increase in people ordering our beautiful Drip Cakes. Our Lottie is the creative genius behind them and you can see many of her creations in the Gallery on the site. She’s always up for a challenge so if you have a great idea for a cake she’d love to make it a reality.
Lastly, we’re also taking more orders for our Party Platters. These are perfect if you have a group that needs feeding with a buffet. We make these for businesses and for people who are having an event such as a birthday, retirement and funerals too. We have a wide range of options and make to order. If you have special requirements or dietary restrictions, we can accommodate these too so please call us on 01344 844210 or drop into the shop and have a chat about what you would like.
