Private Dinner Party in Portchester
ChefGary caters a deluxe tasting menu for Helen and friends in Hampshire
Serving no less than seven splendid courses of phenomenally good food, ChefGary catered a fabulous gourmet dinner party in Portchester this Saturday. Utilising the very best of local produce and lovingly prepared ingredients, each plate on the night warranted the very special occasion for Helen and her friends.
Having secured the beautiful holiday let in a rural part of Hampshire to spend the weekend, all the guests were looking forwards to enjoying an amazing dinner in tranquility and comfort with ChefGary. Equally, having omitting any stress or worry about booking taxis and babysitters, it was an added bonus of the evening, as was prime seating next to the cozy log fire. There was a superb array of excellent wines on the table, matched and to be enjoyed with each course - some of course gratefully sampled by my good self ;) The kitchen was open plan, helping create an affable, convivial and fun atmosphere on the evening. Another super dinner party which was enjoyed by all. :)
