Private Dinner Party, Ali and Steve






I had a great beginning to the weekend, starting with a fab Private Dinner Party in Owslebury. I was welcomed very warmly into the lovely home of Steve and Ali which had a beautiful kitchen area for me to work in. I really loved the island in the middle which allowed for plenty of space and a platform for me to plate up from. Adjoining to the lounge area, it was the perfect setting for me to be cooking on display of  all the guests and cooking for a group of old friends, the atmosphere was very amicable with plenty of benevolent banter. 

The evening started off with some delicious canapes, being enjoyed around the kitchen island before serving the remaining three courses at the dining table. Ali and Steve chose one of my favourite dishes, having fillet of Beef Wellington for their main-course. I always use the best quality ingredients, rolling  the fillet with wild mushroom pate, Proscuitto ham and puff pastry. It is a fantastic dish and it was a great pleasure to receive positive compliments for my recipe.
