Private Dinner Party, Cheryl & Pete





I cooked for a benevolent group this Saturday who helped make their friends celebration of a momentous Birthday a very special occasion. Cheryl did an amazing job of keeping it a secret until the evening, being a fantastic surprise for Pete when he came in. On the night, everything was delivered perfectly and couldn't have gone better. It was  a pleasure cooking for everyone who were such an obviously charming bunch and it was especially rewarding as Cheryl had given me free range with the menu and just let me know some of her favourite ingredients to work with.
