BBQ FUNCTION, Maria and Wayne Murray

We have had a vast mix of weather this Summer, with a great start for the BBQ season as early as March and April, with plenty of sun and rain following after. I have just finished catering for my latest and probably last BBQ of this year as we have had more rain this August than most. However, luck held out and we had plenty of sun this Saturday when I catered for Maria and Wayne Murray and their 45 guests near Basingstoke in their lovely home. I put the menu together in accordance with their preferences and I have been looking forwards to doing the actual cooking since. The day went really well and I stayed on after the lunch time BBQ to provide food again in the evening.
