My daughter Ellie is going on a trip to Kosovo this summer with the church youth group. They’re going to help out in an orphanage and spend some time seeing what it’s like there. The group have been coming up with a variety of schemes to raise money for their trip, such as car washing and baby sitting. But Ellie had a stroke of genius: Ellie’s Pop-up Restaurant. For £10 a head Ellie will cook and serve a three course meal (chosen from the menu she has designed) at our house. For a further £10 her friend will baby-sit. All the money goes to the Kosozo trip.
Yesterday evening was her opening night, with the lovely S family coming for dinner. Ellie spent the afternoon preparing food and laying the table. The menu was:
- Fresh Tomato Bruschetta
- Salmon Tikka with Cucumber Raita and Naan Bread for Mrs and Ms. S
- Cauliflower and Macaroni Cheese for Mr S
- Banoffee Pie for Mr & Mrs S
- Warm Chocolate Brownie for Ms S
- Coffee and Mints
The table looked lovely and the food was delicious, and Ellie cooked and served everything with great style and skill. The S family were great customers and enjoyed themselves a lot. Ellie was tired but happy and hoping for more bookings.
There’s plenty of Saturdays between now and August when they go, so book early to avoid disappointment J
