Private Dinner Party, Jan and Family, Hampshire

This weekend I served up some fantastic food for five fabulous family members in the comfort of their own home in Southampton. Jan runs her own flower business and had put a lovey centre piece on the dining table which really looked amazing. With my little Apple Bird next to Jan's beautiful flowers it was a very nice table indeed;)  Being an open plan kitchen, I had the pleasure of being on display as I prepared, cooked, plated and served each course. With plenty of great banter around the table I had a brilliant evening, enjoying the great atmosphere throughout the night and joining in on conversation.
