Private Dinner Party, Marilyn and Andrew Freeman



My latest Dinner Party was a food lovers dream, serving a delectable array of seven delicious courses spread out over a superb evening. Cooking for a wonderful group of friends celebrating Marilyns's Birthday in Basingstoke, Hampshire, I had great pleasure in producing each plate of food, receiving fantastic compliments along the way. With the two young grandchildren helping waiter and clear the table an element of fun was brought to the Dinner Party and the humour around the table was in good spirits all evening.
