Private Dinner Party, Maria and Darren, Awbridge Danes, Hampshire.







I cooked for a wonderfully large and lively group of friends in Awbridge recently, being another return visit to Maria and Darren's wonderful house and kitchen near Romsey. It's always a pleasure to do so, serving up a delicious array of dishes each time. I am always made to feel most welcome and often sample some delicious wines through the evening, (in moderation of course :) I served up some tempting and tasty canapes followed by seven delicious and delightful courses at the table. Each course was well received all round which made the night another hugely rewarding dinner party. :)

Private Dinner Party, Kate Harrill, Portsmouth, Hampshire

"Brilliant birthday celebration dinner party - beautifully presented delicious food ! Gary could not have been more helpful in finalising the arrangements and it was a real pleasure to deal with him throughout"     Kate Harrill, 






This Weekend I traveled to Portsmouth to cook three courses for a table of 7 fantastic guests. Serving Canapes prior to Dinner along with some delicious sparkling English Wine went down really well and each course followed smoothly after. I managed to enjoy a superb glass of red during the evening and it was a huge pleasure to cook for such lovely people.
