Private Hen Dinner Party, Karen and Friends, Hampshire

"Dear Gary,
On behalf of all of the girls thank you so much for our private dinner party for Michele’s hen weekend.   We can’t thank you enough – our meal was amazing and so delicious.    We all thoroughly enjoyed the experience and as you know did not want it to end!   You and Mike certainly made our weekend extra special – we did not stop talking about it the next day.

Catering for a Superb Hen Party this weekend was a real treat, serving up some delicious canapes and four tasty courses to a group of seven lovely ladies :) Having rented out a fab holiday home for the weekend to celebrate, the girls booked me to cook an enticing Dinner Party Menu for them all on the Sunday evening. I arrived as usual with all my gear and ingredients, laying the table and getting everything ready. Welcomed very warmly, it was a great start to the evening and as the wine flowed the atmosphere started to get more jolly and louder as each course was served :) As the cheese came out it was a huge pleasure to be invited to join in with a small glass of wine along with Mike who came with me on the day. All the "Hens" were fantastic company and it was definitely a Dinner Party to remember!! :)
