Wentworth, Virginia Water: Evening Buffet for 70

A lovely evening in Wentworth, Virginia Water, Surrey, GU25. The host chose some of my favourite Eastern and Middle-Eastern dishes – with some classic Italian (mozzarella and tomatoes) and old English (Eton Mess) also thrown in. The great thing about hiring a private chef is that you are not tied to one style of cuisine!

Cobham, Surrey: Barbecue for 24 In Cobham, Surrey, KT11

Petersham, Richmond, Surrey: Garden lunch for 10

Even the rain didn’t manage to dampen the spirits of the guests at this gorgeous lunch party in Petersham, Richmond, TW10. My client has excellent taste in food, and particularly likes Italian classics such as Spinach, mushroom and ricotta rotolo, which was also a favourite of mine when I was a young chef working with Theo Randall and Jane Baxter under the guidance of Rose Gray and Ruth Rogers at the River Café, London W6.

The party went on for hours – we even served tea with scones and cakes in the evening – and was held in a beautiful big marquee in Esher, Surrey, KT10.
