Summer is here, and we are very glad to be able to say that the first garden party of the year went with a real swing.  The weather was glorious, there was a bouncy castle, and the food was excellent.

Well, we would say that, of course!

But look:

A whole poached salmon, several delicious fresh salads, baked glazed ham and new potatoes, all served with home-made mayonnaise and a selection of our savoury chutneys.

In case you're wondering what happened to the salmon's tail, it's here...

It was reunited with the rest of the salmon when we served the food. 

As you can see from the sunny smile on Jo's face, we had a lovely day.  Seeing all the empty plates coming back afterwards was a bonus!

Someone* forgot to photograph the desserts, but I can tell you they were lovely.  A raspberry Pavlova, and a light no-flour orange cake with orange syrup.  Most people opted for "a little bit of both please" and some even came back for more!

Fingers crossed that the next party will be graced with such a beautiful sunny day.

*Me.  I was too busy making sure people were enjoying their lunch.  Sorry.
