Crispy belly of pork with ginger and apple sauce
Mini quail’s eggs royals with smoked salmon and hollandaise

Buffalo mozzarella, sweet cherry tomatoes, and char grilled asparagus

Main course:

Seared cod with caper butter, prig onion and potato Rosti, samphire, and broad beans

Plating up in the dry store…

 Old Wichester and Tunworth cheeseboard with figs and grapes

A rather splendid chocolate cake which easily satisfied 50 guests!
