Rogue at the Chefs Taster Lunch
Rogue general manager Jennifer Hunter will be serving up canapés 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.
Born and raised in the Scottish Borders, a passion for local produce and sustainability is ingrained in Jennifer’s DNA. Starting in hospitality from a young age, Jennifer went on to study Business Management at the University of Dundee, achieving a first-class honors degree. Applying her knowledge and creative edge, Jennifer soon became one of G1’s youngest general managers, working in venues such as Mammacita and Forgans. Always looking towards the future and the next challenge, Jennifer joined the Rogue team in April last year, renovating the old Drouthy Neebors into St Andrew’s hidden gem for dry-aged steaks, locally landed seafood and, of course, Felons gin.
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, 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.
There will also be music from the popular University of St Andrews student-based A Cappella group The Accidentals.
