Many of you may or may not know but we have been in the last few months buying lots of fondue sets! We have finally got enough which leads us onto our next monthly evening event as you can see. Something completely new and on ground not yet trodden for us at the café. I think a few of you think we are completely mad undertaking two courses of fondues but you know how we love a challenge!!!!
So as you can see from the menu below, starter and dessert will be 'fondue-esque' with sliders for our buffet main course, which in case you don't know, sliders are mini versions of everything. Don't panic though if you have a big appetite we have solution- just eat more of them!!!
We hope you will come and join us for a fun evening!
Don't forget...… there's a forfeit if you drop your food in the fondue!! (Don't worry we won't be enforcing that but your table guests might!!)
You are, as ever, welcome to bring your own alcohol, we simply charge you £1 per person to cover glass washing and bottle disposal. You might be interested to know we have recently put in for our alcohol license for our café which will enable us to sell alcohol, which for some of you will make you very happy. If however you think you would still like to bring your own then this will remain unchanged.
Cafe Address- Thyme after time, Spire Hill Farm, Thornhill, Stalbridge, DT10 2SG.

St Marys Church and The Hub at Stalbridge are holding a Marmalade Sale on 23rd March. There's still time to join in with this Seville partnership by making your own for the church to sell.
The sale will take place between 10.00am and 12 noon on Saturday 23rd March in The Hub at Stalbridge, just off Station Road. All proceeds go to The Church of St Mary in Stalbridge.
The word 'marmalade' comes from 'marmelo', which is Portuguese for 'quince'. The first marmalade consumed in Britain was a thick quince and rosewater paste, and was supposed to be eaten just after your meal to help with digestion.
Most European countries use "marmalade" as a generic term for jams of all flavours, simply adding the name of the fruit to the description. In Italy, for example, jam made from oranges is called 'marmellata di arancia'.
The earliest known British recipe for marmalade made from Seville oranges is "marmelet of oranges" in a recipe book written by Eliza Cholmondeley about 1677. But marmalade was not produced on a commercial scale until the beginning of the 18th century, when an offshore storm forced a Spanish ship packed with Seville oranges seek shelter in Dundee harbour. James Keiller, a local grocer at the time, purchased the entire cargo at a very keen price, only to discover that these oranges were not sweet but sour and he couldn't sell them to anyone.
His mother, Janet, came up with the idea of replacing the quinces she usually used to make marmalade with these oranges. She sold it in the family grocers shop and it proved so popular that she began to make it year in year out. Within 20 years the demand for orange marmalade in Scotland was so great that the world's first marmalade factory was opened in Dundee in 1797.
