Private Dinner Party, Kev, Ellen and Friends, Upwey House, Dorset







This weekend, ChefMike and I catered for a very special birthday celebration in a lovely rented home in Dorchester. Having cooked for Kev and Ellen quite a few times before at their own home, it was a pleasure to be invited to do so again :) All the guests were really easy with the food, requesting an Asian themed tasting menu and so we were able to create a really exciting array of dushes to suit. Each course went down fabulously, serving the meal over about three hours including some delightful canapes and seven further delicious courses.
