Private Christmas Dinner Party, Kelly and Alan

"Gary, Saturday was a huge hit! LOVED the whole experience and the food as always was outstanding" Kelly Reid




Christmas is coming up fast and it was in full swing this weekend when I catered for some hungry and  festive family members celebrating a Christmas get together. Prepared perfectly for the occasion, the Christmas Jumpers were out and crackers were on the table! :) I have cooked for Kelly and Alan many times in their lovely home in Chandlers Ford but this was to be held at Kelly's parents so it was the first time for me in their kitchen. It was a pleasant surprise as I had plenty of work space to make use of and a beautiful large oven with a gas range stove. I had 5 gorgeous little elfs to feed before the adults sat down to dine on a themed menu to suit a big Family Christmas Dinner. Starting with some canapes before a further three courses, the evening flowed smoothly despite me having to run out as I left the sprouts at home!! It all turned out great in the end and I look forwards to the next time with the lovely Kelly and Alan. :)
