“The dinner party was laidback and enjoyable. Daniel Archer put together an excellent menu for the four of us and can certainly cook great rustic food. Our venison was beautifully done and I’ll be after the recipe for his fabulous starter.
My only criticism was that the floor was left quite messy. Just something to think about next time!”
Chef Daniel’s ‘great rustic food’ put him in good stead with the jury. His wonderful presentation and flavours really impressed the judges.
