PRIVATE DINNER PARTY, Kavita Deepak-Knights


I had the recent pleasure of catering for a Birthday Dinner Party for some great friends and cooked up some delicious favourites for the menu. Fillet of beef Wellington has definitely become one of my more popular dishes at dinner Parties and it is obvious to see why. The most tender cut of beef is used, and I seasoned the meat well, before searing and wrapping with Proscuitto ham, wild mushroom pate and puff pastry. It was a fantastic menu which was chosen by my good friend Carrie, and I was invited to join in on the dining experience which is always a pleasure.

"Hi Gary, just wanted to thank you so much for the most delicious dinner! The starters were so yummy, especially the chorizo and homemade bread. The beef Wellington was to die for and the desserts were my idea of heaven! You cook with such passion and love and this is most certainly reflected in the food you serve!
