Moxie LOVED our last Mingle at Cheadle Hulme’s own cookery school and event space so much that we’ve been itching for a return fixture… our brunch Mingle, if anything, was even better than the last one! Now approaching their first birthday, At the Kitchen, on Warren Road in Cheadle Hulme, is SO much more than just a cookery school – although, of course, it’s a fabulous cookery school!
At the Kitchen is also a completely customisable event space. Cookery courses cover everything you can imagine, and owner Angela Boggiano – renowned chef and food stylist – will work with you to accommodate any special requests. There are also special events, Supper clubs, craft courses and photography workshops as well as collaborations with local beer suppliers and gin aficionados… literally, something for everyone.
Angela really spoilt us – and demonstrated her considerable talent – with today’s spread, featuring an array of savouries (my personal favourites were the bacon, tomato, rocket and onion focaccia) and countless delectable pastries. Oh, that melt-in-the-mouth chocolate, orange and nut concoction! Another impressive turn out meant the conversation began to flow immediately and a diverse, if not eclectic, collection of local business people began to make useful connections – often without even realising it. Lots of new people were skilfully (and often rather funnily) introduced by Wendy – there are no daunting speeches necessary at Moxie. The general consensus was that they will definitely be back, and lots of regulars are already planning our own social event At the Kitchen… There will probably be wine.
Fittingly for a Mingle at a cookery school, we were also treated by our friendly local IFA, Roger Prydderch. Roger’s wife Rebecca – of Cake Creations by Rebecca – gifted a beautiful cupcake bouquet for a business card raffle, which was won by the lucky David Mone of Snapes Letting Agent in Woodford.
We’ve had a lovely morning, which barely felt like networking at all, and will all look forward to being back At the Kitchen for an event, a course or a Supper Club. Some of us will dream of those pastries…
We’re Mingling next month at the beautiful Mere Golf Resort & Spa, one of Cheshire’s premier destinations, just outside Knutsford on 27 March. Tickets are available now, so book on and join us – it’ll be worth it just to see this stunning venue. See you then!
