After a very soggy Friday setting up, the day of the party to celebrate the 80th Birthday of June was a glorious one!
A beautifully decorated marquee was set up in her garden and the 70 guests arrived to a welcome drink of pimms and lemonade or fresh juice. Included in the guests was June’s son, actor David Hunt who starred in the Dirty Harry series and his wife Patricia Heaton, known for her role as Deborah in Everybody loves Raymond.
A 3 course meal was served with a choice for the adults and for the children.
Pear, parmesan and rocket salad with crispy pancetta
Chicken liver pate with fresh bread and mixed salad
Fillet of beef with pancetta dauphinnoise with red wine jus
Pea and courgette risotto cake with truffled leeks and smoked tomato dressing
Chicken and chips served with a homemade ketchup
Chocolate torte with chocolate and raspberry textures
Fresh strawberries and cream
After the meal the guests enjoyed the rest of the afternoon soaking up the sun in the garden…Perfect!
