Private Dining at Ballathie House Hotel with Chef Tom Lewis

Last week I was lucky enough to be invited on a ‘Foodie’ press tour in Perthshire. We had a wonderful time meeting lots of inspiring food & drinks businesses, as well as getting involved (I especially enjoyed the sushi making master class with LovSushi and the Chilli planting at Chillilicious Chilli Farm but will save those for now).

We were also incredibly fortunate to have Chef Tom Lewis, of Monachyle Mhor Restaurant come to our hotel and create a superb private dining experience just for us.

A picture tells a thousand words so here are a few of our menu…..

Needless to say we had a wonderful meal, the buffalo, grouse & eel were my especial favourites and it was a superb touch having Tom join us for each course and chew the culinary fat throughout the evening!

      It was truly fab Emma, we had a sushi making class and lunch in the afternoon and a wine tasting before the dinner. The next day we went to a Chilli farm for lunch which was also fab, further posts to follow!
