Brian Wareham, Special Birthday Dinner Party, Winchester

This weekend I was personal Chef for a very special Birthday Dinner Party for Brian, who was celebrating with his close family at home. Having cooked for all on several occasions before, it was a brilliant evening, sharing in a little wine at the end of the meal. As usual, I served up some delicious little canapes prior to seating, then followed with the remaining courses at the table. We had a very special course in the middle as one of Brian's favourite dishes is classic Lasagna, and so I served it up as an interim course before the Mains. It went down really well as it was a surprise for Brian and gave a few laughs :) It was hard to pick a favourite course over al but it was especially rewarding to produce my Pork Main Dish, taking a lot of practise and skill to get just right. Showing off different cooking styles, textures and flavours on one dish is something I love to do with all my cooking, whether it be meat, fish or vegetarian, but Pork is especially pleasurable to work with. :) Anotther fabulous Dinner Party under my belt and I am booked in with them all  again soon.
