Private Dinner Party, Grayshott, April, 2012

My latest Private Dinner Party went down great this weekend, being my fifth successive Dinner at The Grayshott Gallette, near Petersfield. It was particularly rewarding as some new friends, Jody and Kate Baker came along to sample my food. I cooked for 26 covers, making it a busy one, which was both challenging and hard work, but a great accolade when I received lots of positive feedback.
