12 Dec A Traditional Menu and a Traditional Venue
Travelling through the Cairngorms National Park last week to cater in the lovely setting of the Glenfiddich Distillery, it was easy to remind ourselves of why we do this job! The whole Good Highland Food Team – chefs, service staff and the fleet were on our way to serve a delicious lunch menu.
Chef Jim Thomson had been working with the team to create a beautifully presented starter of Summer Isles Smoked Salmon followed by Hake with a Light Tarragon & Mussel Velouté , which smelled so delicious… served on a bed of Wilted Rainbow Chard, we all commented that this would be one of the nicest main courses we have on the Good Highland Menu and for fish lovers – you really do want to try it!
Its always great to find a new venue and work with a new team and the team at the Glenfiddich Distillery were no exception. Apart from having a cooking lesson from Chef Jim on the way home, we also reflected on how nice it was to serve a lovely traditional menu in a lovely traditional venue.
Wishing the Speyside Whisky Festival Team all the best for their main dinner on the Festival Calendar this weekend. Good Highland Food enjoyed catering this event last year, but a lucky bride and groom had already booked us this year for their wedding at Achnagairn House.
