The start of the New Year.
The first rental of the New Year is in occupation and this is giving us a chance to test drive our latest collaboration. Ross and Polly run the highly respected Ord Ban restaurant in Aviemore and they have worked up a local, seasonal menu in advance. A huge table has taken residence in the hall and trout, venison, pheasant and beef are simmering away in the kitchen while Steve, whose 40th birthday is being celebrated, is out on a walk unawares. We can now also arrange a chef to do lunches and dinner in house, or arrange excellent pack lunches if you are planning a day out, or Allan, one of the chefs here today, has offered to arrange boxes of local produce for when guests arrive.
Go gourmet leftovers.
As a postscript to this entry I would like to thank Kit for organising this party, even though she couldn't be in attendance. It was a lovely, responsible and likeminded group of people who would be welcome any time. Among the group was Tracey Todhunter whose blog, Low Carbon Communities can be found here. Keep in touch.
