My latest dinner party was for some good friends of ours whom I am doing the wedding catering for this June. I tailored the menu to include some of their favourite dishes, the occasion tonight being Andy's brother's birthday. I took all the ingredients with me to their house along with all my cooking utensils, crockery and cutlery. It was great to meet Andy's parents, his brother and his partner. The atmosphere was nice and relaxed and I was able to set up in the kitchen quite quickly.
