Private Birthday Dinner Party, Chris and Heather and Friends, Fawley, Hampshire,




I had the huge pleasure of cooking for four lovely guests this weekend, providing canapes and three courses of delicious food at a beautiful holiday home in Fawley. Not being far from Southampton, I had a swift journey through some quaint little roads before I arrived at the scenic grounds of Nelson's Place. :) Greeted warmly by Chris at the door, I was shown into the large kitchen to unpack my things and get ready for the Dinner Party ahead. I met the rest of the guests shortly after and it was a great atmosphere, celebrating Heather's Birthday in the cottage. :) Canapes were enjoyed in the lounge before everyone came out to the Dining Table which had me working next to everyone in the communal Kitchen/Dining area. Each course was very well received and I got to enjoy a beer towards the end of the evening :) It was fabulous to be involved in the conversation in-between cooking and I had another fantastic Dinner Party this Saturday......
