Old-fashioned charm

This week we delivered a special Chaps-Only lunch for a group of old friends, with a traditional menu of potted shrimps, Coronation chicken and a chocolate mousse cake.  Apparently it all went down a storm, which is great to know!  The host explained that his friends enjoy what he calls "club food" and this menu fitted the bill to perfection.

Of course we always discuss the menu in detail with our clients, as we want to ensure they have exactly the type of food that they prefer.  We're very proud of the fact that we make (almost) everything we serve from scratch, and use as much fresh local produce as possible.

I've been experimenting with some new recipes recently, the most successful being the sort-of chocolate truffles. They're from a South American recipe and are made with condensed milk and cocoa, creating a very soft, sweet, chocolaty mouthful which is perfect with a coffee.  If you add a dash of Tia Maria to them, as I did, they are even better.

I'll have to make another batch and take some photos, as I neglected to do so and now they're all gone.  Oh no!
