Private Dinner Party, Gordon Dent and Family



This weekend has been fantastic, with my first Dinner Party of the weekend cooking for the lovely Dent Family in Southampton. Having already met in person a few weeks ago to arrange the menu, it felt as if we had known each other for much longer when it came to the evening and there was a great atmosphere in the kitchen and at the table. Although Gordon and his very beautiful wife look far from being 60 themselves, they will soon be celebrating their Diamond(60th) Wedding Anniversary. And so it was an extra special pleasure to serve an array of delicious cuisine and indulge in cordial conversation with them both throughout the evening. We had a fabulous menu, with Asian influence through the starter and main-course, providing a few spicy ingredients with plenty of Chilli, Ginger, Lime and Coconut Milk.
