The Gourmet Supper Club - are you in the know?
Hartingtons held its first ever Gourmet Supper Club (GSC) in our converted saw mill in Bakewell on Friday. For those NOT in the know there seemed nothing special about the dimmed lights and flamenco beats coming from the first floor of the historic Rutland Mill on the banks of the River Wye but for a small group of enthusiastic foodies who were in the know....what a way to start the weekend! Fantastic food, sumptuous wine & inspiring company all in a beautiful setting. As our Facebook page shows our School of Food could have almost be mistaken for a little part of Catalonia just for the evening.
Authentic tapas were provided by El Toro courtesy of their Spanish Chef Eddie Morales and each of the fantastic six food courses were carefully matched with a scintillating wine selected especially by John Hattersely Wines to provide the perfect accompaniment to each dish.
For those that have missed out on the first Gourmet Supper Club our next one is on the theme of a French Autumn Feast and will take place on the 26th October. The food will be created by multi-award winning chef Robert Stordy who will also demo how he created several of the dishes. Again a tutored wine tasting, this time of French wines. will take place. Places are limited so please if you do read this blog keep it to yourself - it's our little secret!
