Private Dinner Party, ChefGary, Hayley & Carl, Pete & Carly and Eleven Vegetarian Courses




I pick up a lot of return visits to my fabulous clients and it's always a huge pleasure to go to Bournemouth to see Pete and Carly. Having first cooked up a 7 course pescetarian banquet for their 10th Wedding anniversary, I have had plenty of sequels. This time around it was at Hayley and Carl's who also had me cook for them for a birthday dinner before Christmas. Although I had mixed Palettes to cater for, it was decided to provide a full Vegetarian Menu which is something that I really love to do. Having experienced plenty of vegetarian cooking competitions over the past few years, I love experimenting with vegetarian ingredients, exploring textures and flavour and spice combinations. Every course went down really well, having served all the food over about 3 1/2 hours. :) Sitting down at the end of the meal with a great glass of red wine made the evening and it was another fantastic dinner party all round, with the next one booked in already :)
