What a ‘view from the kitchen’

What a ‘view from the kitchen’ on Saturday! From the edge of the Forest of Bowland – up above Longridge – looking right across central Lancashire over the Ribble Valley towards Ribchester, Mellor and Samlesbury. And what a beautiful sunny day… the 15 ladies attending Hollie’s hen party weekend had a drinks reception with artisan breads and olives outside before sitting down in the lodge for a three course meal:

• Bread baked in Barnoldswick by @theartisanbakers
• Maple syrup roasted Yorkshire pork belly from Cottingley
• Cream cheese and pancetta (or chestnut) stuffed field mushrooms from @organicnorthwholesale
• Port and redcurrant slow roasted Lancashire lamb from Blacko
• Butternut squash, apple and herbs grown at @_growingwithgrace_ on the other side of the Forest of Bowland
• Salmon en croûte with cream cheese, spinach and samphire, brought fresh from Fleetwood
• Lancashire honey roasted rainbow carrots from @riverford
• Molten-centred chocolate fondant cakes and lemon cheesecakes

All cooked and served in one of the lodges at Valley View Luxury Lodges, Longridge, Lancashire.



This is just one of many insights into my work as a travelling private chef in the North of England. "Where do you cook?" I hear you ask, "I'm looking for a private chef near me".

Well, this example relates to my work as:

I travel throughout the North - check where I can come and cook for you
