Jingle Buns - December Meeting

Sunday, 28 December 2014 § 0

IMerry Christmas and Happy New Year from Buns & Roses!

As usual, being the WI we know how to put on a good spread!!!  We were able to gorge on an enticing buffet stacked with crisps, dips, cocktail sausages, peanuts, mince pies, chocolate log, smoked salmon mousses and lots of home made festive treats from our members including a very intense chocolately rockie road type confection!  

Once we'd gone through the business part of the meeting once again it was on with the cheesy xmas songs, sampling the delights of the buffet, chatting and the making of suffolk puffs with festive fabric. 

Gemma won the quiz and was most triumphant and everyone enjoyed a relaxing a social evening chatting and getting to know each other.  Sam taught a number of our members the important skill of how to make a Suffolk Puff!!

A big thank you to all our members, guests, speakers, workshop leaders, committee and helpers who have helped make 2014 a success - and here's to 2015 - our WI centenary year!

Details of all our meetings and workshops can be found at we look forward to seeing you at a meeting or workshop soon.

Coffeecabana - November Meeting - Coffee Tasting

Tuesday, 2 December 2014 § 0

At our November meeting we welcomed the lovely people from Layne’s Espresso who led us in a cupping session. We tried ‘good’ coffee and ‘bad’ coffee learned about where coffee comes from and the process of making it.
While we were trying the coffees and learning about the process of making a great cuppa joe. We asked many, many questions about the wonderful drink and the lovely Dave shone in his knowledge answering every one. Regaling us with tales of cold water coffee and the amazing airopress.

We all had an amazing night and with the amount of coffee we drank it stayed amazing till the small hours of the morning.
