Private Dinner Party, Anna and Ben Leyland

This weekend has been a fantastic busy time for me with a Sit Down Wedding on the Friday, but the highlight definitely being the Saturday with my latest Dinner Party in Twyford. Cooking up a delicious menu for fourteen in a beautiful large house with a capacious dining room was a pleasure from start to finish. Every guest was perfectly agreeable and each course was complimented by a united round of their applause which was such a first class compliment. The hosts were very cordial, making me feel very welcome and making the evening a brilliant night. Thanks also to Jean who was a star helping me in the kitchen.
