My latest Private Dinner Party was in Chippenham, Wiltshire, catering for a great friendly bunch for a Saturday lunch function. I was welcomed very warmly by Charlotte and her husband and enjoyed a lovely cup of tea whilst setting up. It was another new environment for me but it didn't pose a problem as I found my way around the kitchen, getting ready for the first course. The Lunch went really well and it was very enriching and satisfying as each successive course went out, receiving plenty of great compliments.
