Private Dinner Party, Libby and David Salter

This evening's Private Dinner Party  was Catering for four affable friends in their lovely home on the way to Stockbridge from Southampton, delivering a delectable array of dishes  from some full flavoured Canapes through to  the delicious Dessert. It was an open plan kitchen and dining area and it was a fantastic evening to be cooking in front of all the guests and joining in on cheerful conversation. It was s second visit for me as I catered for a Dinner Party there last November, providing an Asian influenced menu with a duo of Pork cuts as the Star Course. Tonight's main dish was Duck and it is one of my top favourites meats to work with, being rich in flavour and both beautifully tender and succulent when cooked with care. As always I strive to go the extra mile and as I had a guest with coeliac disease, I prepared the entire menu Gluten Free.
