Home Cooked Thai Food In Taunton, Somerset

On Saturday 15th May 2010 Kate Towerton and family booked a special 50th birthday meal for her Dad at Cockercombe in West Bagborough near Taunton, Somerset, England http://www.sleeps12.com/cockercombe/  


(Happy Birthday Dad)                       

Cockercombe is one of the many beautiful luxury self catering holiday places available from http://www.sleeps12.com/                                                                           where where you can take your friends and family and relax for a weekend or even a week if you choose. Thai Gourmet were delighted to be asked to do the catering for the event and Khun Lek put together a mix of Thai starters and main courses for the evening.

 Being a London-based group and Chelsea fans they made it a double celebration or should I say treble as they celebrated a Chelsea league and cup double and a happy birthday to Kate’s Dad. It was of course slightly painful to me a life long Manchester United fan and runners-up to them, but this season the bragging rights firmly belong to Chelsea, so a begrudging congratulations was offered.

They all enjoyed the evening and said ”the food was absolutely fantastic”
