Private Christmas Dinner Party, Sarah and Friends




The run up to Christmas this year has been amazing, with my weekends being full of back to back celebratory and most fabulous Dinner Parties. This Saturday was especially fun and rewarding as it was a return visit to South sea, Portsmouth for Sarah and her very entertaining friends. We held the Party over a Saturday lunch time to fit in with everybody and also, there was a gorgeous little 1 year old Frankie in the house. ;) The menu was decided a few weeks before the date and as usual, I prepared most of my ingredients off site, ready for cooking at the house. Arriving to a warm greeting from Guy and Becky I unpacked my cooking utensils and food and began setting up. Every course went down exceptionally well accompanied by much Presecco! and a perfect lunchtime celebration was set, also being a huge pleasure to join everyone at the table for a glass of delicious Fizzy myself at the end of the meal.
