What a treat it was for us to have an impromptu visit from our daughter Georgie last Thursday evening.  With a busy schedule working as a Private Chef based in London, it was rare and lovely that she had a free evening to pop down to Kent to see us for the night.  

It was a beautiful sunny, warm evening, and so lovely to finally get all the furniture and cushions out on the deck.  Summer had started!

What an added treat that Georgie also wanted to cook for us....even on her day off!                                                            

A selection of her Asian inspired recipes were on the menu....as you can see below, we were not the only ones eagerly awaiting our dinner...Kiki our Cockerspaniel not only loves Georgie, she also loves her food...what dog doesn't?

What a dinner it was!

Lightly seared tuna, with herb, chilli and tomato salsa, with a crisp and crunchy fresh salad of radish and spring onion, with edible flowers.

Marinated scallop sashimi with grapefruit and basil....so fresh and delicate.

Lastly, the most delicious tamarind marinated rack of lamb chops, with an incredible lime, asian slaw.

A fabulous feast, cooked by a fabulous daughter....who more than deserved that glass of chilled rosé!
