Another Private Dinner Party coming form a recommendation through Jules and Sue Porter who must be my biggest food fans. It is such an accolade for me each time I cater for a dinner party through word of mouth and my latest one was as rewarding as any, cooking for a great couple and their friends in their lovely home in Alton.
Celebrating Ellen's Birthday, we used some of her favourite ingredients in the menu which I put together from the list that Kev gave me. I got great feedback from the evening and was really happy with the way things went, adding another successful dinner party to my repertoire.
Freshly made cheese and blush tomato granary bread, olive oil and balsamic,
Seared scallops, black pudding, pea puree, Parma ham crisps,
Mille fuille of British beef fillet medallions, puff pastry, Saint Agur, Pancetta,
Hand cut chips, curly kale, tender stem broccoli, glazed chantaney carrots,
Bailey's and toffee cheesecake, crushed meringue, caramel tuille,
