It's two of us friends Sarah & Punitha who love hosting private parties.
Sarah loves Afternoon Teas and brunches, the traditional sort with the tiered plates and the finger sandwiches and little cakes, scones and clotted cream. Some of her earliest childhood memories were when parents took her for cream teas whenever they were in the UK. And mum being English, always had a Victoria Sponge cake or a jam rolypoly in the pantry for sweets.
She had been working a 9 to 5 job without feeling fulfilled. Eventually came to a decision that it was time for her to do something that she would enjoy. For a whim she threw an Afternoon Tea party and had friends over. It proved to be a hit. Over tray bakes and subsequent home cooked dinners she realized that cooking was that very something she was looking for and took that road naturally. She believe that guests who comes to her home should never leave it hungry.
Punitha on the other hand is of Chinese and Tamil ancestry. She loves cooking too but her love for eating has superseded that.
Sarah and Punitha met many years ago, but their food relationship and friendship has grown even stronger since Sarah moved to where she lives now. She recently did up her house and it's the perfect place to hold small social events.
