Private Dinner Party, C Barnes, Dorchester





This weekend I had the pleasure of travelling to the Beautiful Woodsford Castle near Dorchester to deliver a feast of Asian flavours spread over no less than 7 courses. And of course, the evening began with some delectable canapes to whet the appetite before the main meal commenced! Catering for a surprise Birthday, it was a covert operation to park up and get all my equipment and ingredients into the back kitchen whilst the birthday girl was out for a walk around the amazing local grounds. It is always a wonderful thing to see the expression of surprise and titillation and it sets me up well to go on and produce some fantastic food.  It turned into a fabulous evening, everyone being so welcoming and courteous and it was quite a fun twist to have all the guests seated directly in the kitchen. Catering for 6 hungry adults and 3 children was quite challenging in a small space for such a huge Castle but it was all in a days work and a really rewarding evening.

I also had with me young Liam, who is an aspiring young Chef, very keen to experience cooking in a Dinner Party environment. It was great to have a little extra help and it was a delight to share my skills and knowledge with someone so keen to learn.
