Effortless Entertaining at Home
I've adapted my business to offer a restaurant at home experience this Autumn, working alongside MasterChef 2019 finalist Alex Talbot we deliver a bespoke service offering fine dining in the comfort of your own home.
This Year was due to be my biggest year yet, with my diary booked with weddings, events and parties across the UK. Since COVID hit in March I have spent that last 6 months focusing on my family and how to pivot my business until I'm able to plan large weddings and events again.
Understanding that dining at home has become the new going out, I have masterminded an effortless at-home dining experience for the Autumn and festive season ahead. Teaming up with MasterChef Alex Talbot, We want to show that the elegance of a restaurant and service of a fine dining experience in one of London’s top eateries can easily be delivered in the private and comfort of your own home with exquisitely tailored seasonal menus, tables dressed in locally grown foliage and flowers, the finest linen and tableware and with wines perfectly paired to your tastes.
With COVID restrictions for big events still in place for the foreseeable future, myself and Alex are setting out to change the way we entertain at home. Being so used to planning weddings for 200 plus people, but with all of my work postponed till 2021, I want to show that this is the perfect opportunity to bring fine dining to your dinner party or event at home. We will discuss bespoke menus and all the details of your evening down to the finishing touches with you before the date of your event. Everything will be perfectly organised for you.
It is the perfect format for anyone considering an anniversary, dinner party, birthday celebrations, intimate weddings or Festive Christmas events. My selected team and I will come to your house, dress an exquisite table, while Alex will prepare and cook a delicious dinner. I will light the candles, stoke the fires and welcome your guests, take their coats and offer them drinks while you’re busy greeting other arrivals. Once the evening is finished the team will wash and clean down the kitchen, pack up hire items, and clear the dining table while you continue to entertain your guests and leave you free to relax and enjoy your celebration stress-free.
Alex and I met in 2019 at a mutual friends birthday party and went onto work together for one of my client 50th birthday dinner parties I organised, recognising the benefits of working alongside a professional chef like Alex, I was quick to contact her about this new idea for autumn. Alex’s use of flavours in her cooking are exceptional and having her on board brings an extra quality to any evening. Her training from MasterChef means that every plate is perfectly presented and utterly delicious. I'm so looking forward to getting stuck into organising parties with Alex.
