Private Dinner Party, Birthday Celebration, Studland Bay, Christina Colby






This weekend, I catered a superb birthday celebration dinner party in a beautiful hired holiday home in Studland Bay. I had only received the call for the booking the same week all the way from New York so it was amazing to feel that my presence was felt all the way over in America, (albeit online ;) With a bit of juggling, I was able to come up with a menu in super quick time and was really excited to be producing one of my fabulous gourmet dinners. Cooking a tasting menu for twelve is a big challenge in  a strange house but I was rewarded with a large kitchen, plenty of space and two huge ovens which were fab to work with :) Being made to feel so welcome on arrival always helps and it was such a huge pleasure cooking for such friendly and wonderful guests. it was especially rewarding to have two young "fans" watch me plate up the desserts towards the end of the meal and chat so enthusiastically about the food on the evening. :) By the time  I had cleared up, all guests were dancing in celabratory style, making a superb ending to a brilliant dinner party.
