Unbelievably, TOGO from La Petite Bouchée is One today. There was no question that we would carry on, the alternative was to lose the business. Not an option. Not after all the blood, sweat and tears of the past 6 years. I'd already built the website and written the Italian menu in London the day after we took the decision to close a week before the government announcement. Today was the day we launched and started sending food out. We've been overwhelmed by the support we've received locally, we've been honoured to deliver to friends and neighbours, the vulnerable and those shielding and since wonderful Forest Produce stepped up to deliver throughout Devon a lot more of our regular customers have enjoyed our little trip around the globe each week. Our incredible suppliers have been nothing short of miraculous throughout the whole of this year and have delivered week after week. Thank you Dart Fresh, Celtic Fish & Game, Forest, Black Tor Brewery, Shapland and Searle & Moor Wine. I did the first lockdown alone ( lesson very much learnt) along with Linzi who amazingly did the deliveries for the last couple of months of lockdown 1. We have been blessed throughout all three lockdowns with the most amazing support from local businesses who allow us to use their business as a pick up point. Thanks to Two Moors Store Thorne's Farm and Shapland & Searle
Fortunately for the last two lockdowns I've had my incredible team with me, swapping their front of house rolls for packing and labelling. They have been absolute stars !
Since lockdown 1 we've served an incredible 3458 meals.
Only another 8 weeks till we open and so our RESTAURANT TOGO boxes continue, we're celebrating Easter with a trip to Spain. There are still a few spaces left. Information on booking can be found HERE

DEMELZA IS FIFTY
On June 26th Demelza our beautiful vintage camper, the original and La Grande Dame La Petite Bouchée restaurant turns 50. We'll be celebrating with a special dinner based on a typical 1970's bistro menu on 25th June and an invitation only party for our regular customers and foodie friends on 26th June. This is a very special occasion for our little business and so we're also going to be using this weekend to fundraise for James, our friend and someone who has been a huge support to La Petite Bouchée, who is running the London Marathon this October for North Devon Hospice.
We'll have more on this exciting weekend of celebrations shortly. To register interest for special dinner please email us HERE
