Private 40th Birthday Dinner Party,Mark Sherwin, Hampshire

"Thank you so much for a wonderful dinner on Saturday. It was a wonderful way to celebrate me toppling over into my 40s. Everyone loved the food, everything was fantastic! Thank you again for a wonderful evening which we all thoroughly enjoyed"
Mark Sherwin 





On Saturday, I catered a fabulous Dinner Party for Mark's very special Birthday celebration at home. Having cooked for Mark and his lovely wife, Hannah, on many occasions, it was a great pleasure to be there to provide the food for some his close friends for what was a very memorable Party! With Cocktails, Champagne, Canapes, four Delicious Courses and even a Hot Tub, the evening was a huge success and definitely one I won't ever forget :) As always, Mark had a great selection of cheese to finish off the evening and some equally fantastic red wine. It was a pleasure to join everybody at the table afterwards and helped make a very rewarding evening for me.
