A Spectacular Dinner Party with Divine Flowers Enjoy....
We used a selection of autumnal Dahlias, Nerines, Orchids, Roses, Chillis, Tulips, Astilbe, Sedum and Amaryllis
The place settings were simple luggage labels attached to threaded conkers for a game later on
So the scene was set the guests started to arrive
The Starter in mid preparation, my brother Paul & I were in charge of cooking and this was his dish, he'd removed the legs from Mallards and Partridges these were cooked in a confit for three hours and then the meat was shredded and rolled to create a sausage which was portioned and sauted until crispy on the outside and yummy and soft on the inside....
The finished dish, Breasts of Partridge & Mallard with Confit on caramalised pears with a pear cider sauce Fish Course: Sea Bass with tomato jam and lemon grass beurre blanc
Lamb for mains served on cabbage, kale and carrots with piped potatoe puree and spinach and parsley puree and Red wine jus
Time out for a game of conkers Emma & I were the champions
Cheeses with figs and quince jelly
a frozen pot of frozen grapes
And finally White Chocolate Panacotta with dark and milk chocolate Cheese cake
I love cooking almost as much as I love flowers, socialising and eating but when you put all three together it's fantabulous!
Jonny Draper thank you so much for taking the photographs even though you were getting progressively more inebriated as the evening was drawing to an end! xxxx
