Welcome to Just Delight Me…I am a true passionate for Food, service and Hospitality. I have spent my entire career dedicated to exceeding people's expectations and creating customer delight. In my early days as a student, I aspired to work as a journalist, however ended up taking a part-time job in a local restaurant whilst studying. I trained in the art of cuisine before studying management. I have worked in many amazing places, with some true inspirers. Later on, I worked for myself for 10 years and ran two amazing restaurants. I work in Contract catering now, but have aspirations to mentor others and bring praise to the table for places off the beaten track that fully deserve recognition. I know first hand how tough the restaurant business can be, and the difficulties one may face in light of high street competition. I support the small and hardworking business people of this world, but also love to be delighted… twitter.com/suzannehemchaou
The Vineyard at Stockcross.
I know, I know what you’re all gonna say. You’re reviewing the gaff where your hubby works. Well yes I am, but dearies I have always loved the Vineyard from when my former colleague David Sharland was Head chef. I literally live 6 minutes away but associate The Vineyard with sanctuary. Over the years the quality and consistency has always been on par from the rooms to the food. Let’s talk about wine, well the owners are wine makers too and the Michael family vineyards in California produce award winning and to die for wine. The hotel boasts stunning wine, unrivalled food, non stuffy service. The service in fact is non intrusive with a sprinkle of just right humour. This adds to the overall feeling that the team on site are genuinely delighted to be with one another. I believe The Vineyard is entering a very exciting new era. Service is bang on, business is booming and the golden gem of a brand new head chef in the form of Robby Jenks is just the ticket. I had the pleasure of tasting the new Spring Menu last week, and for me frankly the food is the best I’ve tasted.
