This weekend I traveled to Seend in Wiltshire, cooking at the quaint and most arresting of holiday homes, Brookes Farm. Having twice catered Private Dinner Parties there before, it was a real pleasure to return and cook for friends of my previous hosts and deliver a superb menu for five wonderful guests. Celebrating a very special Birthday, we had four generations of one family staying at the Farm to aid in jubilating the weekend. I had the warmest of greetings from the youngest lady of the house, who is just a few months younger than my own little boy! :) When it came to dinner, I had the house's grand Aga to work with in the delightful and spacious kitchen and so it was an enjoyable and fantastic evening. All the guests were extremely friendly, making me feel most welcome and I loved the whole dinner from start to finish. Between the main course of Parma Ham wrapped Monkfish and my Trio of Desserts, I offered to showcase my Apple Swan carving as it was the centre of attention at the table. It was a novelty to do so and it really helped contribute to a most splendid celebration of a weekend.
