Private Dinner Party, Christmas Day, Sue Moore



This December 25th, I took on a Festive Private Dinner Party in North Hampshire for an affable and courteous family of nine. Sue had requested a traditional Turkey Dinner which suited me well and to have Christmas Pudding at the end of the meal to keep in line with the Christmas theme. I had great pleasure in coming up with the final menu and as always, enjoyed sourcing the ingredients and preparing everything before arriving at Sue and Ian's lovely house. A modern Kitchen with an island in the middle was great to work in and the AGA fitted in perfectly, attributing to it's character. I was treated to a lovely cup of tea whilst I unpacked and prepared the Canapes before finishing off and serving the remaining titillating courses.
