To follow
Cod with braised lentils and proscuitto

To finish

The pot of gold at the end of this weekend's culinary rainbow was this gorgeous celebration. Guests gathered in the garden (avoiding the showers) and partied in the kitchen (always the heart of the best parties) and were warmed up with our delicious taster portions of bowl food, an unusual alternative to a buffet. We were delighted to be part of it. Happy birthday Gail.

Slowly braised Asian beef with hot and sour salad.

Courgette and rice filo pastries with green salad.

 Chicken Mughlai with buttered naan.

For a sensational Saturday, in pictures

Sorry for the delay, we're a whole two weeks behind. Staggered that that is even possible but it's been a busy old time here. After our last Saturday supper we've been in hiding, planning and preparing for our next events and celebrating a birthday and some precious time as a family. If you're looking for some Summery inspiration to chase away the rain however, we may have the answer here. Thank you to all those who gathered at our Table now a wee while ago, we loved it.
