Castle Grove Country House Hotel are celebrating the best of autumn with a Harvest dinner on Friday Oct 19th. Here, the team share a glimpse at what guests can expect from this special event:
A Traditional Harvest Feast, celebrating the perfect marriage of traditional dishes and cooking methods with a modern “CG “twist.
This week at Castle Grove, we welcome the Autumn season with the Harvest Moon. Take a stroll around the Grounds and it’s immediately apparent that Autumn is well and truly upon us.
The birds are flocking together in readiness to take flight to warmer climes. The trees are preparing to shed their leaves and the collage of colours is amazing – with hints of yellow, brown and moody reds emerging.
In the Walled Garden, Autumn fruits are ripe. The pumpkins are ready to dazzle for Halloween and the many varieties of root vegetables are ready for harvest.
Indoors, it’s the time of year to get those log fires burning in the drawing rooms and to relight the majestic Aga stove in the kitchen.
To celebrate this wonderful season, we are hosting a magnificent Harvest Moon Supper. In fact, it was the relighting of the Aga that gave us further inspiration to also celebrate old world cooking and preservation techniques – something that we have been doing at Castle Grove for many years.
Expect to find warm hearty dishes on the menu. Expect succulent meats, root vegetables, pumpkins, game birds and wild mushrooms, all locally sourced from the grounds and nearby farms. Expect traditional country house cooking techniques – smoking, pickling, fermenting and curing.
And without doubt, expect the abundance of flavour and freshness combined with first class service that is the trademark of the fine dining tradition at Castle Grove.
The celebration kicks off with cocktails on arrival followed by a 7-course tasting extravaganza prepared by our award-winning chefs. The menu will be paired with fine wines, each one presented by our wine expert.
Don’t miss this opportunity to take a step back in time and enjoy an old-world country house dining experience to celebrate all that is great about the Autumn Harvest.
