Private Dinner Party - Golden Wedding Anniversary - Alan West - New Forest
"Absolutely marvellous - a family celebration of our Golden Wedding Anniversary and every single guest without exception was totally impressed by all the dishes. A top class chef who made us a truly wonderful meal and made our special occasion so memorable"
This weekend, we were cooking some fabulous food for a very special Golden Wedding Anniversary Dinner Party. Commemorating the milestone family celebration at the New Forest House in Hampshire, it was a fabulous evening, having the perfect surroundings and the very best of the weather too. We have catered many private dinner parties at The New Forest House, though being private chef for such a memoriabe and tremendous ocassion was the hugest of pleasures. We provided some delectable canapes and a delicious three course dinner for 16 guests in total which were well received all round. Made to feel most welcome on arrival it was a rewarding experience from start to finish, making for another superb dinner party.
