Couple hire celebrity chef to cater at children’s christening
A CELEBRITY chef prepared a nine-course meal for a Shiplake couple celebrating the christening of two of their children.
Colin McGurran visited Chris and Judy Goforth’s riverside home in Bolney Road along with at least 20 of his staff. They travelled by coach from his Winteringham Fields restaurant in Lincolnshire.
The Goforths have known the chef and his wife Bex since 2008 when they lived in the North and used to frequent the restaurant.
Mrs Goforth, 41, said: “It’s probably the best restaurant we have ever been to.”
When the couple last saw Mr McGurran they mentioned that two of their five children, Jasper, four, and 11-month-old Daisy, were to be baptised and the chef offered to cater for the party. Mrs Goforth said: “Colin said he would love to do it.”
