How are you all?
As you know I have been to Stobo castle Check out the full post here.
I knew as I started writing that post that the food at Stobo Castle needed its own post.
We were on Dinner, breakfast and lunch deal. I want to share with you what we ate.
The avocado salad. This was beautifully fresh. I loved the mix of flavours the beetroot added that extra kick of flavour. The side dressing of basil was amazing. Just delish.
Prawn Marie rose salad. This was my husband, He said the prawns were fresh and juicy.
great sauce and loved the rocket.
Why is there two photos of the lamb? Well, we both had to have the lamb. I love lamb and fine it is very hard to get a really good piece of lamb.
This is cooked to perfectly melt in the mouth tenderness. The redcurrant and port sauce was amazing. it was the right amount of rich without overpowering the lamb.
To accompany, the lamb was freshly boiled potatoes turnip and cabbage. All cooked to perfection and really balanced the lamb nicely.
My husband had the cheese board. He particularly liked the brie. He loved the chutney in the pastry case. I have to confess I had the fig and it was delicious.
Lemon PossetOH MY GOODNESS. This dessert is pure heaven to me. creamy with a lemon zing. This was one of
the highlights of the meal for me. even the shortbread topping was the best shortbread I have tasted and being Scottish that's a brave claim.
Breakfast I forgot to take photos as It was really busy and a buffet. It had loads of fresh fruit choices and a hot food buffet with eggs cooked to order. There are cereals and meats everything you could want.
I had the fruit salad to start. The pineapple in this was super tasty and juicy. This was the perfect arrangement of fruit. The zing of the raspberry with the mellow melon and the hit of pineapple just works so well.
My husband had the soup. Which I was too slow to get a photo of before he had eaten it. It was fresh asparagus. This was creamy and light which he loved.
He ordered the cajun chicken and rice. He said it was tender and juicy with the right kick of seasoning. He especially liked the salsa on the top. it mixed well with the rice.
I went for the cold buffet. There was a crazy amount choose from. The lamb was good and with it being cold you could really taste the flavour. The potatoes were cajun spiced and my favourite part of the buffet. These are so nice. There were lots of salads and pasta salads to choose from. Everything was amazing and I would definitely recommend the buffet if you are there for lunch.
We both ordered the Coconut pannacotta. It had a passion fruit sauce This dessert was outstanding.
everything from pannacotta to the side of cream was out of this world amazing. I could eat this all day long. It really was perfect.
I have to say the food is a big part of travelling for us and Stobo Castle did not disappoint.
honestly, the food is a reason in its self to go to Stobo. They have wonderful chefs who really put time and effort into each and every menu. It really is a highlight of a visit to Stobo.
