This was such a special and spectacular supper, that I couldn't resist uploading the majority of the photo's on to the blog, as well as the past events page.
Considering the rather childish theme for this supper, we had a table packed with well heeled and fascinating 'grown-ups', who all had an inquisitive mind and an appreciation of good food.
We served 'The Last Harvest' - a puree of chestnut and nutmeg, with a variety of baby vegetables, all cooked and pickled in different ways, scattered with crispy shallots, oregano and white truffle oil. The main course was '28 Days Later' - 28 day aged beef, roasted shallow, tenderstem, fondant potato, black pudding and a light jus. Or, fried sea bass, crayfish and salsa verde for the pescatarians. Finally, a white chocolate zombie brain with a whipped salted caramel mousse centre, clementine/blackberry jellies, pistachio, and hot lemon and raspberry sauce to melt the brain.
It was a rip roaring success and one we will never forget, especially when our famous musical guest, Sandy Brechin, played a round on his accordion!
