We were recently booked for a private dinner party to celebrate a 70th birthday. It was held in the beautiful and historic Boys Hall near Ashford, Kent.
Unfortunately we didn't take any pictures of the food. The guests had Canapes which were Crying Tiger Beef Rice Paper Rolls, Fried Quails Eggs & Truffle Butter on Melba Toast and Tandoori Chicken Roulades, Mango Chutney & Mini Popadum. This was followed by a 3 course meal of Duck Rillette with Smoked Bacon, Apricots & Sour Dough. Followed by Braised Lamb Shank, Truffled Celeriac Puree, Heritage Carrots, Rosemary & Redcurrant Jus. Finished with Churros, Cinnamon Sugar, Butterscotch Sauce.
The guests were a lovely group to work for, and the house was a wonderful setting for the celebration. The evening went without a hitch. From a chefs perspective the kitchen was large and well equipped with lots of oven space. Couldn't ask for more.
Hopefully we will be back soon.
