Buffet lunch

Easter weekend is a popular time to be married or christened. Some people of course have their birthdays, and what better way to celebrate than to gather all 3 generations of the family together. The Cotswolds is an ideal location for families to join up in the middle - some coming from London and the south and some from the north as was the case at Wellacres last Saturday lunch time.
Red onion and St. Agnes cheese tart with oven dried tomatoes and sauteed baby plum tomatoes


Grilled asparagus with parmesan, and, in the far left top corner, melon balls in grenadine for the younger guests

Main courses were roast sirloin of beef with yorkshire puddings (which went in the oven as everyone sat down for the starter) and Smoked trout parcels - with smoked trout from Donnington trout farm just a few miles from Wellacres, and some chicken goujons and chips for the youngest members of the family.

Glazed lemon tart (ever popular), and chocolate nemesis topped with white chocolate and nuts

Then, after cheese was served, there was just time to finish off some miniture desserts for the assiette dessert to round off the 3 course dinner party delivery which we dropped off at Hill House on the way back to Upper Court where I dropped off another dinner party. Then there was just time to clear up before packing up the Sunday deliveries - after all there are 24 hours in a day......
