BBQ Function, Hen Party in Southampton

Despite the English weather this year I have been really busy with plenty of Summer functions. One of my favourite styles of cooking is definitely to BBQ food, utilising many versatile cuts of meat and fish . adding different marinades to add flavour and tenderise. Probably my last BBQ of this year was for a group of animated and captivating hens, throwing a party at their home to celebrate the upcoming marriage for their friend. The girls chose the menu from my site last month and I turned up a few hours early on the evening to light my coal BBQ and get it at the right temperature before commencing cooking. Everything was served buffet style and the girls enjoyed all the main food, before finishing off with a choice of desserts. I had a very enjoyable evening and it was good to see the girls having fun and it was refreshing to meet a jovial bunch of people, including Dan the barman who served them some delightful cocktails throughput the evening.
