Family parties

Family parties should be fun, light-hearted and relaxing, and we make sure they are, with a lot of hard work beforehand (done by us, not you!)

Families are great but often contain what the host and hostess see as potential problems. An elderly aunt who can’t abide peppers (that’s OK, we simply omit them from the paella). A father who is suspicious of foreign food (chill, there’s always an alternative). Fussy children who only eat chicken nuggets and hate rice (righty ho, we’ve all been there, we’ll cook the nuggets for you and bring extra bread and butter for the children). Whatever the worry, we’ll always sort it out.
