Private Dinner Party, Grayshott, January, 2012



I have now catered for two dinner parties for Noel and his wife Michelle,  in Grayshott, near Petersfield. They are holding a Dinner club at their beautiful little coffee shop for 20 people on the last Saturday in each month. Working together with Noel, I will be putting up a four course menu with coffee and mints to follow. For a fantastic introductory price of just £26.95 per head to include a glass of wine on arrival, this is a must for all fans of good food, served in a great relaxed atmosphere. Noel and Michelle have a personal little family business and use their daughter Ellie to help out in the kitchen and front of house. The evening went really well, catering to full capacity and we are sure to continue to hold the club, with a new exciting menu coming out each month.
