ChefGary Caters Private Charity Dinner Party in Winchester, Hampshire for Sarah and Friends
This weekend, ChefGary and ChefMike went out to cook for Leanne and Ian and friends in their lovely home near Winchester. Hosting a dinner party event
in support of children's cancer research
along with Sarah who has spent an incredible amount of time and energy in training for the London Marathon in hope to make a difference with her efforts. Finally getting to run last Sunday, Sarah ran the race in an incredible time, all the support and money raised certainly beng well earned!! But prior to the incredible hard slog on the day, a fabulous dinner party was catered for and enjoyed for eight good friends all showing their support. Serving up some delicious canapes along with arrival drinks before a further four flavourful and outstanding plates pf decadent food followed, all going down exceptionally well on the evening.
As Mike and I went out together, I was able to get a few action shots of the plating up. It was great to catch ChefMike in action during the course of the evening and we also had a captivated young audience whilst the canapes were being served up.
