Rocca Italian Deli and Cafe at the Chefs Taster Lunch
Rocca Deli and Cafe is providing a selection of Italian pastries for the Savour St Andrews Chefs Taster Lunch, which is being held in association with the Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort and Spa.
The event is taking place on Sunday November 3 in the hotel’s Hall of Champions (12-3pm), with around 20 businesses taking part.
Rocca is a small family run cafe & delicatessen in the heart of St Andrews, which prides itself on quality and standard of produce and service. It stocks a fine array of Italian products and offers a range of made to order bistro style food and gourmet sandwiches as well as Italian coffees and desserts. Meats and cheeses are specially selected and imported from Italy and our large ciabatta rolls are hand made to ensure our customers enjoy a genuine Italian experience.
Visitors to the taster lunch will be able to taste a variety of dishes, see the chefs at work, ask questions and hear about ingredients and techniques.
The innovative event offers tickets for just £5 which can be used to try three dishes. There will also be samples of artisan soft drinks and speciality coffees. Tickets can be purchased at the door, booking isn’t necessary and entry is free. Children under 12 will be given free tickets for three dishes.
Part of the proceeds will go towards bursaries for hospitality students at SRUC Elmwood Campus and Fife College.
Among those taking part will be the Old Course Hotel itself, St Andrews Links, The Adamson, The Peat Inn, The Seafood Ristorante, Playfair’s Restaurant, Zest, Forgan’s, Mitchells St Andrews, Rocca Deli, the Golf Inn, Fisher and Donaldson, Rufflets St Andrews, Tailend, Macdonald Rusacks (St Andrews Surf and Turf), Hotel du Vin St Andrews, St Andrews Brewing Co, Hams Hame, Rogue, The Doll’s House, SRUC Elmwood and Bon Accord.
