Private Dinner Party, Rachel and Family, Brooks Farm

It was a Big Birthday Celebration at the lovely Brooks Farm in Wiltshire this weekend, cooking for a friendly family holidaying for the weekend. I was contacted by Rachel via email a little while back and so it was great to finally meet everyone and get my favourite part of my work underway. Making use of a beautifully large Kitchen with an old fashioned Aga, it was a real pleasure to cook and serve a delicious menu of King Scallops with Black Pudding and Cauliflower Puree, Trio of roast Duck with Balsamic and Redcurrant Gravy and Melting Chocolate Fondant with Peanut Butter Ice Cream to finish off. 

I also had the young Liam with me who is a Passionate young Chef, keen to learn from accompanying me to some of my Private Dinner Parties. It's fantastic to be able to pass my skills and knowledge along but equally a big help when working under pressure, feeding hungry Diners! Another Brilliant Dinner Party all round and I look forwards to the next visit to Brooks Farm, a truly stunning and enticing venue.
