Champagne and canapes greeted the birthday girls guest as they arrived to celebrate Susan’s 40th birthday.
We spoiled the guests with canapes of:
Smoked salmon on a beetroot blini with crème fraiche and caviar
Roast duck breast with port marinated cherries on a malted crostini.
Cambridge blue with a spiced onion chutney and cherry tomato
Rump steak with chips and béarnaise sauce on brioche
After time to enjoy a glass or two of champagne the guests were called into the kitchen to dine on a 3 course meal being cooked in front of them by our chef Pete. Pete cooked up a feast of:
Pea risotto with goats cheese, Parma ham, rocket salad and tomato salsa
Slow braised lamb shank with dauphinnoise potato, confit carrots, swede puree and caramelised shallots.
Rich chocolate tart with lemon set cream and macerated raspberries
Much fun and laughter had by all. (us included!)
Susan very kindly sent us a lovely testimonial:
Thank you for all your help arranging our dinner party on Saturday. The food was amazing. In fact the whole evening was a huge success with all our guests extremely impressed with both the food and service. Please pass on my thanks to Peter and Emma who were both very friendly, professional and a pleasure to have in our home. The evening was truly all I hoped for.
