"Farm to Table & not overly-complicated food"
Well, what can I say? Impressed would be an understatement! We have just arrived home after celebrating my parent's 50th wedding anniversary meal at their home. We wanted it to be a complete surprise and it certainly was. From the initial enquiry, I had an email from Marcel (chef), and from there it was full steam ahead! He was totally understanding and accepting of any adjustments to the menu...even when it involved a change less than a week before the event. Upon arrival, my shocked parents were impressed by Marcel's politeness, friendliness, and sense of humour. During the meal, he knocked on the door when a course was served ( a small touch, but so nice these days!). The food was absolutely sublime! The steaks ( and my mum's chicken) were cooked to perfection, the roasted mushrooms in cider with poached egg, asparagus and toast were mouth-watering, and the apple and rhubarb crumbles were exquisitely balanced with the vanilla sauce Anglaise! Suffice to say, we will 100% be using this service again! By the way, value for money is brilliant; much less than a quality restaurant would charge and Marcel even left the kitchen immaculate! Seriously, try it! Thank you for an amazing evening Marcel!
