It was the first day of the year that any form of warm weather surfaced. Kate and Ronnie arrived promptly and instantly put me as a host at ease. There was a distinct air of calmness and professionalism about them as Ronnie set about transforming the dinner table whilst Kate took over the kitchen.
We began with an amuse bouche of white onion veloute with wild garlic oil and garlic crisps. A tasty little treat featuring a sweet, silky smooth soup and a little punch of wild garlic, which I love.
A delicious palette cleanser appeared before the main course in the form of Pimm’s sorbet; I’m thankful to the chefs for leaving half a tub in my freezer!
It was obvious throughout that Ronnie was on top of her game and she chatted throughout, giving us stories of the produce and her life in the industry. Drinks were always full and a relaxing atmosphere lasted throughout the evening – even when Katie fell off her chair!
For someone like me who is always on edge when hosting dinners and keen to deliver an outstanding experience, I can’t recommend Kate and Ronnie enough. Private cheffing is certainly a different experience and one everybody should try at least once in their life. Divine cooking and exemplary service defined the evening and I wish Kate and Ronnie every success in their new business venture. They even do the dishes!
