The Doll’s House at the Chefs Taster Lunch
The Doll’s House head chef Scott Gilchrist will be cooking mixed game spring rolls and roast butternut crostinis 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 Old Course Hotel’s Hall of Champions (12-3pm), with around 20 businesses taking part.
The Doll’s House believes in working closely with carefully chosen local suppliers to provide the very best produce Scotland has to offer. There is a passion for provenance, seasonality and serving only the best hearty fayre! Every week 50p from the sale of every Sunday roast is donated to Families First – a local charity based in the area. Open at 9am for coffee, cake and freshly baked scones, the Doll’s house also serves brunch from 10am until midday, a market menu served weekdays from 12-6pm or the main menu available every evening and weekends.
Visitors to the 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.
