The Adamson at the Chefs Taster Lunch
Cocktail specialists from the award winning Adamson restaurant and bar will be bringing their skills to the Savour St Andrews Chefs Taster Lunch, which is being held in association with the Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort and Spa next month.
The event is taking place on Sunday November 3 in the Old Course Hotel’s Hall of Champions (12-3pm), with around 20 businesses taking part.
The Adamson’s managing director Julie Lewis (pictured) will be providing free tastings of special “mocktails” for the taster lunch.
In the heart of St Andrews at 127 South Street, The Adamson is dedicated to using the freshest ingredients and is commited to sustainability with suppliers. It continues to support and train new talent entering the industry and participates each November in the Savour St Andrews food and drink events.
Founded in 2012 by managing director Julie Lewis and director Graham Dalton, The Adamson occupies a historic site in the town. The property was originally home to the Adamson family in the early 1800s. Their eldest son, Dr. John, was a physician and pioneer photographer. He took the first calotype portrait in Scotland in 1841.
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.
