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!
