PRIVATE DINNER PARTY, Liesl Devereux





I have had a great busy weekend cooking so far and I have just finished my latest Dinner Party for some previous guests of mine and also my favourite big cousin, Liesl. She asked me a little while back to cook for her and a group of friends to celebrate the birthday of her husband Richard. I have cooked for Richard's parents before and it was a pleasure to see Terry and Carolyn again as well as meeting some of Liesl's other friends.

I recently purchased my new camera, a Nikon 7000 and it was a great opportunity to try it out.

Trio of bruschettas, rocket leaves, caramelized figs, balsamic.
