Jan 2015: Notes from the Kitchen

This January saw the grand reopening of the Skip Garden Cafe!

The kitchen team have been working hard over the last few months, tearing apart the old kitchen and putting together the fantastic set-up we have now. Since the refurbishment, the kitchen is much better equipped to keep up with the volumes of tasty food to be cooked.

The Cafe may have been closed for the past few months, but our chefs have been constantly busy. We’ve had a stream of events here at the Skip Garden, from evening drinks in the yurt, to sit-down banquets in the 12m polytunnel, where diners can enjoy a candlelit feast, surrounded by beds growing rainbow chard, wild rocket and other salad crops. We hosted toddlers’ birthday parties with pizzas baked in our own wood-fired cob ovens, as well as corporate dinners and drinks, booked by companies such as Eurostar.

Susie’s reflections on our 10 year celebrations and leaving Global Generation

Susie’s reflections on our 10 year celebrations and leaving Global Generation

“Leap like a tiger, walk like a tortoise” is one of my favourite ever Buddhist phrases, and can apply to so many things we do - requiring a burst of courage and then lots of tiny steps and steady growth, to move on to making that first leap worthwhile.

It took a giant leap to begin working with Global Generation in 2012, and now it’s taking a big leap to leave.

Fresh from the Kitchen

We’ve had a month of new food and new faces in the kitchen, just in time for all the big events we have coming up to celebrate our ten year anniversary, writes Global Generation Chef Catherine Forrester.

We’re delighted to welcome two new kitchen interns, Harriet and Veronica. We were only planning to recruit one person, but they were both so brilliant we just couldn’t choose! They’ve already made themselves invaluable, helping to create some amazing pizzas in our new wood-fired pizza oven at an event in their first week.
