Private Dinner Party, Jan and Family

"The food, presentation, approach and creativity make for a unique and tasty feast. Just sensational. Thank You"     Alexandra Lanning

This weekend was another superb one of amazing food combined with a fabulous atmosphere when we cooked for Jan and family in Southampton. I have know Jan for quite a few years through her flower business so it was lovely to cook for everyone, aiding the celebration of a special birthday. We had two pescatarian guests at the table and two meat lovers so opted for a split choice menu to suit all. After canapes and four courses, everyone was suitably full, offering some great compliments on all the courses :)
