From Knickers To Kitchens...

A couple of weeks ago we lost a valuable member of our production team, but the good news is she hasn't gone far and we still get to see her everyday!

Jane joined us in 2015 and quickly became an integral part of our team, respected and loved by all that worked with her. However Jane's real passion was cooking, when she was asked to cook lunch for our sister company deVOL Kitchens she was excited to be given the chance to showcase her skills. 

Jane had done so many small touches that most wouldn't even think about, she had made herself and 'helper' Katy (our Garment Design Assistant) a homemade apron out of leftover material at home, brought in napkins, and made lime water for a refreshing drink for all to share.

We were treated to the most amazing Mexican dishes of Chicken Mole, Black Bean Quesadilla's, Salsa, Sour Cream and Rice. Words cannot do justice to this meal, so I simply said to Jane "this is by far the best thing I've eaten this year". 

One of the most delicious lunches I've ever eaten.

Jane even managed to make homemade Popcorn Ice Cream, with Rhubarb Compote, Chocolate Sauce and a Coffee & Walnut 'thank you' cake. 

A lovely dessert.

Everybody eating had nothing but glowing praise & compliments for Jane & Katy.

It turned out to be the start of an amazing journey for Jane who was offered the chef's position at deVOL Kitchens, and we are all delighted for her.

I am sure it will be the dream job Jane wanted for so long and I know she'll be a success. All that's left for me to say is thank you and best of luck Jane! x
