Private Dinner Party, Louisa and Friends





Catering for a great bunch of work friends celebrating their Christmas Party in January at a holiday home in Swanage was a fantastic Dinner evening. A resplendent Menu with my own Smoked Duck to start with, four cuts of Lamb for the Main-course and finishing with Toffee Apple and Pecan Crumble was well received all round! It was a pleasure to cook for a bunch of brilliant sports who created a fantastic atmosphere to be in.

Private Dinner Party, Mark and Hannah Sherwin





Another amazing 7 course Dinner Party this weekend serving up some delectable Asian inspired dishes! Cooking an array of inviting and delicious plates of food for 5 fantastic friends was a complete pleasure, utilising my skills in an impressive and prestige cuisine. A return visit for Mark and Hannah was a great accolade and the evening couldn't have gone better. Joining the table for a glass of red and some fine cheeses topped the evening off perfectly and I look forwards to the next event.
