The Accidentals at the Chefs Taster Lunch
The amazingly talented University of St Andrews student-based A Cappella group The Accidentals will be making another very welcome appearance at 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.
The Accidentals are St Andrews’ first all-female A Cappella ensemble, currently made up of nine girls from across the year groups. Known for their strong sisterhood, killer choreography and all-around sass, they seek to promote female empowerment, supporting multiple women’s societies on campus and emphasising girl power in many of their songs. The Accidentals are from all over, with members from England, the United States, Portugal, Austria, France, and Lithuania as well as Scotland all united in their love of singing and pink jackets. The international group unsurprisingly loves traveling, often bringing their voices to Edinburgh, Dublin, and London.
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.
