Private Hen Dinner Party Celebration, Southampton





I love catering for all occasions, be it be a special Birthday, a Wedding Anniversary, Works Party or simply a special Dinner at Home. This weekend though, I knew it was going to be a great evening as I was booked to be Private Chef for a group of Hens, celebrating at their home in fine style in Southampton. Having booked me through word of mouth, it was a huge pleasure to mark the event in my diary way back from last year. The date came around really quickly though and it was fabulous to come up with  a brilliant menu to suit all the girls. I had one vegetarian, two dairy free and one gluten free diet, so it was a bit of a test to work some recipes but I relished the challenge to do so. The "Hens" all enjoyed some delicious canapes that were all vegetarian, gluten and dairy free before seating to enjoy three more courses. Finishing with my "Trio of Desserts" again, all gluten and dairy free, it was a very rewarding menu to produce and I was certainly made to feel appreciated by all after each course. :)
