Private Dinner Party, David and Sharon Leach

I attain so much pleasure from cooking great food at Private Dinner Parties and it is all the more rewarding when it is for previous clients. I catered for David's Birthday BBQ back in July of last year and it was great to be invited back to cook for them again in their lovely house, near Bournemouth. Sharon and David chose a great menu to enjoy with friends and I was really passionate about producing some delicious plates of food from some great quality ingredients.

David and Sharon were great hosts and made me feel very welcome as they did on my previous visit. As I was setting up, their friends arrived to the pleasant surprise of me cooking their dinner in the relaxed environment and comfort of David and Sharon's home. It was to be a great evening, with brilliant feed back and compliments on the food and friendly chat between all.
