RTE star Kathryn Thomas celebrated her 31st birthday in style when she and her garda beau Enda Waters stepped out to this month's Loaves and Fishes supper club, hosted by up and coming cook Lilly Higgins, sister of popular comedienne Maeve (below).
The Diary can reveal how the Operation Transformation presenter joined her longtime boyfriend and a number of gal-pals at Lilly's homegrown version of The Restaurant, which took place at her house in Kilmainham on Saturday night.
Carlow native Kathryn and fellow guests enjoyed a selection of home-cooked fare which included potato, herb and leek soup, beef and chorizo stew and sticky toffee pudding cakes for dessert.
Afterwards VIP guest Kathryn was presented with a birthday cake by fellow RTE star Maeve, who had been roped in by her sister to help waitress and serve guests.
Talented cook Lilly first started running the monthly event in November and has already been inundated with enquiries about February's dinner.
"Kathryn was dressed up to the nines and seemed to really enjoy her evening," said one party guest.
"She was taken completely by surprise when she was presented with the cake as she hadn't wanted to make a big fuss of her birthday."
