Private Dinner Party, Ben and Kim Parker




The third of three superb Private Dinner Parties this week did not disappoint, the final one being for 21 people celebrating a big birthday in Winchester. With no less than 8 delectable and delightful courses of superb cuisine it was a big challenge to pull off but with plenty of preparation beforehand and determination on the night, I was so happy with everything produced on the evening. Having one long table laid out in a beautiful open plan kitchen with plenty of work space, I really enjoyed serving up every plate of food, especially one of my all time favourite and special dishes, Beef Fillet Wellington. The whole night was a complete pleasure from start to finish, every guest being so accommodating and welcoming. Ben and Kim were such great hosts and despite myself doing all the cooking, I know they had their work cut out entertaining all their guests, but still managing to make me feel so appreciated throughout.
