  1. Penrice Birthing Centre St Austell hosts Bite Me Catering

    Leave a Comment

    We were delighted to be asked to provide catering at Penrice Birth Centre in St Austell who were celebrating re-opening 24/7.

    We took with us our ever popular Roast in a Box. A lovely, succulent mix of slow-roasted Pork shoulder and Beef brisket, served in a thick, tasty and rich gravy. With this comes cauliflower cheese, mashed swede, potato cakes, stir-fried veggies, parsnip crisps, and stuffing. Served in our 100% recyclable kraft boxes.

    The day was a great success and enjoyed by lots of people and expectant Mums. The bouncy castle was very popular as well as the tombola (we didn’t win ūüôĀ )

    From Royal Cornwall Hospitals Trust Facebook page:

    A #brilliant show of teamwork by maternity service colleagues today cycling from Truro Birth Centre to Penrice Birth Centre to celebrate International Day of the Midwife and the resumption of 24/7 midwife cover at the St Austell Unit. 

    An exhausting but enjoyable way to raise funds for their Caring For You initiative, supporting staff health and wellbeing.

    A wonderful Open Day, too , organised by Lead Midwife Lizzie Anstey and the team at Penrice, showing off the welcoming facilities available for parents looking for a home from home birthing experience.

  2. Bite Me Caterings New Kraft Food Boxes

    Leave a Comment

    We are really pleased with two new purchases here at Bite Me HQ. First off are our really nice Kraft food boxes. We were dishing out such large portions that the old boxes would not shut! We searched high and low for a smart looking container that would look nice and be friendly to the environment. Luckily we found the boxes pictured above at a reasonable price.

    The other purchase is a new rubber stamp, sop we can mark all our boxes with our logo, social media, phone number and web address – http://bitemecatering.co.uk/

    We are delighted how these look and with our biodegradable forks, we aim to leave as small a footprint as possible on the planet!

    We have already attended the¬†1st-2nd at it was an amazing success. The place was full of people looking for Christmas gifts and from what we saw and heard there was plenty to choose from. There were also lots of happy children’s¬†faces who had been lucky enough to meet Santa in the fabulous¬†Grotto and even better Santa is giving all the Groto¬†takings to¬†Cornwall charities, Invictus Trust, Cornwall Air Ambulance and local community causes in Ashton and Breage.

    Here are some other attractions while you are visiting:

    • LIVE music¬†will help us all get in the festive spirit across the three weekends. From the popular, comedic returning act¬†Gwelhellin, to the wonderfully spine tingling¬†Porthleven Town Band,¬†we‚Äôll have a range of music to keep spirits up and everyone thoroughly entertained. This year we‚Äôre even giving them their very own bandstand to perform from!
    • FESTIVE food¬†‚Äď choose from street food options (Takeaway Roasts!)amongst the outdoor hustle and bustle, or take a pit-stop in the on-site¬†Garden Kitchen Cafe, which will be serving up a delightful, and an extensive menu of main meals, sweet treats, and hot and cold beverages!

  5. Helston Christmas Lights Switch On

    Leave a Comment

    Wow, what a night at Helston Christmas Lights Рthe first time out in the new Horse Box since it has been painstakingly converted by us. This unit is ideal for shorter events like this, as it takes in total about 4 hours to set up and break down the gazebo. Also setting the gazebo up by myself is virtually impossible, especially if it is windy. So now I have the ability to hook up the trailer and get Bite Me Catering to any event at the drop of a hat.

    Helston Christmas Lights

    Back to Helston Christmas Lights. I have not seen the town so busy for a light switching on event as I did this Friday. It was great to see so many people out enjoying the mild and dry weather and all were in a good mood. We arrived a little late as we had teething problems with the trailer light board, but we soon got down to setting up and selling with some help from Barry Clark at the Wheal Dream and power from The Box Nightclub Рbig thank you!

    Our Christmas Turkey Roast was the biggest seller and we had lots of amazing feedback about how nice it is, here are a few comments from Facebook.

    Was absolutely delicious¬†ūüė謆thank you for feeding me – From Linda.

    The roast was fantastic. Thanks Lyns and Jamie. ‚ÄėTwas yummy! – From Abi.

    Fabulous food¬†‚ô•ÔłŹūüėĀ – From Michelle.

    So all in all a great evening event. We have lots of tweaks and editions to make to the trailer, because you cannot work it all out without actually using it for real on the day. Also, the hard as diamond, non-slip floor paint we used on the rear ramp, well, it slipped off! Heading back to B&Q to get our money back on that one.

  6. St Keverne Summer Fete

    We are delighted to have been invited to St Keverne summer Fete on Sunday, July 8th, 2018 from 12 pm onwards. There are lots of exciting competitions and games to take part in and all proceeds will go towards their annual fireworks display in November.

    We look forward to seeing you all there… Right, better make some cakes ūüėČ

    Alright folks, we’re less than a week away now so here’s a bit of a timetable for the day and more detail on all the exciting things we have happening!

    12 noon: Gates open!
    The beer tent will be running and we’ll have the barbecue cooking from the start, so why not head down for a burger and pint lunch, then stay to enjoy everything else on offer?

    We’ve got competitions to try your hand at, including guess the number of sweets in a jar, treasure hunt, name the teddy and guess the weight of the cake kindly donated by¬†Dawn’s Edible Elegance, along with a raffle – donations of prizes gratefully received!
    Games will include a bean bag throw and coconut shy (to be confirmed).
    Pam will be bringing her plants along to sell, there will be gifts from Head Rush Gifts, Scrabble art by Linda Harris, St Keverne Pre-school will be running a book stall, Terry Lander from Lyvit will be bringing along his popular range of books to buy, Mickey Harding will be selling a range of goods, and Truly Cornish will be back with their amazing cupcakes, which sold out on fireworks night.
    We’re also extremely excited to be welcoming¬†Bite Me Catering¬†with their incredible Crispy Hot Cakes! If you haven’t heard of them before now you will have afterwards – vanilla sponge cooked in a light tempura batter, then filled with your choice of sauce and topping. We promise they’re not to be missed!
    Porthoustock Coastguards have also promised to come along with some displays and to show off their vehicle.
    For children we’ve got face painting and then at

    2.30pm: Children’s races in the field.
    We’re planning all the old favourites, with medals for the winner in each one.

    3pm: Strongman (or woman!) competition.
    Definitely one for the adults. Are you up for the challenge of holding a beer keg outstretched for longer than anyone else?

    4pm: Tug of war.
    Watch teams battle it out for the title of champion puller! Plus there’s still time to enter – teams of six, ¬£1 per person. Thank you in advance to Helston and St Keverne Young Farmers’ Club for the use of their rope.

    Plus a fairground organ to give that true fete feel, interspersed with music from the talented members of Spring Tide Tour and finishing the evening off with the ever-popular Three Tuns regulars Crossfire 69.

    We hope there’s something there for everyone, so all we need now is the weather¬†ūüôŹ‚ėÄÔłŹ
    Just a reminder that all profits will go to this year’s fireworks display in November, which will be in aid of St Keverne Pre-school. Let’s make it an even better display than last year!

  7. Soft Launch Charity Day

    Leave a Comment

    On Sunday the 1st of July we fully launched Bite Me Catering. As you would expect the nerves were high but we could not have asked for a better turn out. We marketed the event lightly on Facebook by creating an event page as well as inviting friends and family. We couldn’t¬†have been more surprised out the turnout, which included lots of people we have never met before!

    The morning started with heavy thundery rain and grey skies. Fortunately, we had set the gazeebo up the night before so we had plenty of dry cover. All the equipment was set up first thing, temperatures were taken and then everything was loaded and ready to go!

     

    The first few guests started to arrive bang on 3 o’clock – opening time and we were ready and waiting. The first cake was battered and put in the fryer… success, they loved it our first Really Rocky Road hot cake was served in anger. From then on it was constant for 3 hours with no time for a break between service. the whole operation worked smoothly and successfully and we got some amazing feedback from all, with some good advice thrown in as well.

    From our side we learned lots of valuable lessons and have adjusted our procedure slightly, I am sure this will be evolving forever as adaptation seems to be key in this business.

    The best news is we raised over £306 for the Treliske CCU and have been invited to a number of other events off the back of our launch. We would also like to say a big thank you to everyone who attended our launch and making it an amazing day. Also, thank you to the sun for making a vital appearance!

  8. Our Signage Has Arrived!

    News Signs for Bite Me!

    It has been a long process, designing the logos from the initial concept. Fortunately, Jamie created the initial design concept and from there got the circle logo developed using the fonts and colours we chose. After that was designing and making the steel frame to mount the banner in – I heard lots of cursing coming from his office ūüėČ

    Now it all arrived we have been able to put it together and see if it fits and like magic, the banner fits the triangle perfectly with a 2.5 cm gap around all the edges and it looks amazing, what do you think?

    We have lights which we will attach and in the future, we can add sides with menus and other information as required. This is a really flexible system and I would like to thank everyone who helped us make this a reality.

    Maybe next time you are cutting steel Jamie, you will wear jeans, not shorts!
