I hardly dare mention it (as I'm one who tends to think about Christmas during the designated 'twelve days of' period!). But I am excited that I can now see it looming on the horizon and realise that if I expect any of you to join me for COOKING THE GLENMORE CHRISTMAS LUNCH on FRIDAY 5 DECEMBER I really ought to remind you of it now!
It really is a delightful day to join in; as we pick from the Kitchen Garden, whip up a delicious chilled soup, make court bouillon in which to poach a whole salmon, make a summer pudding and even an ice bowl (if you'll allow me to crack the whip & keep things moving along!). All being well, we will harvest the first beans and dig the very first new baby potatoes. I can almost smell it now....the wafting aroma as well as the contagious excitement of it all! After our morning of collecting and cooking, we will sit down together to enjoy a beautiful late lunch at a table laden with flowers plucked straight from the garden.
As a rule, I have only six people at my cooking days, but may be persuaded to stretch it a wee bit if you have friends who want to join in the fun. And of course, you may like to do a little shopping in the Barn after lunch...perhaps some small things that are suitable to slip into a stocking (even if they're for someone else to slip into yours!).
As you can see, I'm getting excited and it's still only October, but there will be no decorations at Glenmore 'til the twelfth day before'!
If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to contact me. To see full details and/or to make a booking, please click here.
I'll very much hope to see you for what will be a rather joyous day of cooking, eating, chatter, laughter and celebration.
Best wishes as always
