I usually run my own Gourmet evenings through the Winter months, so you wouldn't get much input from me during the Summer.
I love these events, but unfortunately I have to make a decision today, as to whether I cancel this one through lack of interest
So many people have E-Mailed me asking me to run this, but now it's organised, they have almost all found themselves to be 'busy on that day'.
A couple have actually said that they think â‚¬60 to be too expensive, but just what do they want?
This is run as a first class event, the food is always superb and I know that Camillo makes no real money himself from these events, as the price I am charged per head for food is extremely good value.
Obviously, the rest of the charge goes to the cost of the whisky, but in all the events I have ever run here, the best I have done is to LOSE only â‚¬150 to â‚¬200.
This isn't as bad as it sounds, as there is always whisky left over which goes towards other tastings and overall, in the season, I usually break even or make a tiny profit.
But this is no way to run a business, I really need a minimum of 15 people at a Gourmet evening and this time around, I have three, plus myself and Sabine.
Methinks this event will be cancelled today.
