I was delighted to be able to join Andy and Rosa for the inaugral Tantalize event – and what a fantastic evening it was. A twelve course tasting menu, taking the Epicurean adventurer on a trip through the flavours of the world. All dishes were beautifully presented, tasted delicious and were accompanied by an interesting fact about the country, and a quiz question – who knew that you could make diamonds from Tequila?

My personal favourite dish was the Scotch egg – a quail’s egg, cooked to perfection and wrapped in Haggis and breadcrumbs, served with a lovely pureed swede. Close behind was the lime sorbet, which accompanied the tequila and came in a salty tortilla cone. Some of the dishes divided opinion – I found the flavours of the Foie Gras and Pear Compote Crème Brulée a little strong, but others declared it their favourite dish.

It was a lovely evening, and I look forward to another visit in the future. If you’re thinking about giving it a try, go for it – you won’t be disappointed!
