menu tasting 2013
Menu tasting 2013: Another delicious year…
It was the time of year we had all been waiting for -  the annual menu tasting...   Each year we sample some of the dishes that we offer our clients so that when it comes to the planning of an event, whether it's a family celebration, a wedding or a conference, we are able to give first hand advice on what food and wine combinations may work best.  Each March the new menu is released and it is great to see all of our hard work come together.  Our team works closely with the head chefs at Prestige Venues and Events to create innovative and inspiring dishes.  Our wine supplier, Bibendum, offer a fantastic selection of the finest wines and you, our guests can enjoy it!
Delicious new menus 2012: Our team’s tasting highlights
Running a five star exclusive venue keeps us on our toes, so it is nice when we can benefit from some of the perks! Undoubtedly, one of these is the annual menu tasting, where award winning Executive Head Chef of Prestige Venues and Events Trevor Garden comes to the Castle to showcase the coming year’s bespoke menu, and a delighted Dundas team get to sample the results –purely to give their professional appraisal of course! Dishes served at Dundas must not only compliment the surroundings and delight both the eye and the palate; they must be suitable for a wide variety of events, from gala dinners for 200, to intimate boathouse dinners just for two. Having digested the dishes, some of the team gave their opinion on their ‘dream menu’ for a specific type of event. Warning: do not read this post if you’re feeling hungry!
