Scottish Food & Drink Fortnight
Wine Dinners at Cameron House as we Celebrate Scottish Food & Fine Wines
Scotland is full of talented people, long-established brands and emerging businesses who harvest, rear, grow and manufacture outstanding produce. The majority of UK consumers agree that Scotland’s food and drink is unparalleled. The flavour, taste and freshness is unequalled anywhere in the world.
Scottish Food & Drink Fortnight celebrates, supports and showcases companies, brands and people who champion our country’s natural larder. From every corner of Scotland, from iconic brands to entrepreneurs, this celebration spotlights those who make the food and drink industry more exciting by adding a unique Scottish flair. The aim of Scottish Food & Drink Fortnight is to encourage and fuel the demand for local produce to ensure that our local business owners continue to thrive and build a stronger Scottish food and drink economy, and reputation.
Scottish Food & Drink Fortnight runs from 31st August – 15th September 2019 and to celebrate, our resort is hosting various Champagne, Wine and Beer Dinners throughout the season at The Boat House restaurant to spotlight the finest Scottish produce paired with Lanson champagne. We’ve also teamed up with local craft brewery Harviestoun to host a four-course dinner paired with craft beers at The Clubhouse at Cameron.
Harviestoun Beer Dinner
Thursday 3rd October | 6.30pm | £49 per person
We’ve teamed up with legendary craft beer brewers Harviestoun, to host a delicious four course Scottish inspired dinner at The Clubhouse at Cameron on November 3rd 2019.
Using the finest local ingredients, the evening will feature a selection of our gastro favourites. Each course will be served alongside craft beer pairings, with a brewery representative on hand to talk through the various Harviestoun craft beers on offer.
Our carefully crafted four-course menu will include dishes such as our beer battered cod cheeks, braised pork belly and an indulgent chocolate brownie dessert. Harviestoun’s Bitter & Twisted Golden Ale has a tingly lemon finish which is the perfect accompaniment to our cod cheeks dish, while Harviestoun’s Ridge Pale Ale is a natural coupling for our pork belly, thanks to its unique bitter and sweet flavour.
Lanson Champagne Vintages Dinner
Thursday 7th November | 6.30pm | £55 per person
Our Lanson Champagne Vintages Dinner on November 7th will allow guests to explore the world of vintage Lanson Champagne and indulge on the freshest Scottish produce. A wine dinner that boasts a spectacular Loch Lomond backdrop and exquisite Scottish flavours.
Our chefs at The Boat House have carefully crafted a 5 course menu which complements the delicate selection of vintage Lanson Champagnes on offer. Lanson’s Gold Label vintage bottles blend both Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from some of the world’s most prestigious wine villages including Cramant and Verzenay.
Lanson’s Gold Label 2002 is the perfect companion for our Seared Scottish salmon dish as it allows you to appreciate the flavour and lightness of salmon. This pairing not only enriches the flavours of the salmon but allows your senses to discover the intense notes of candied fruits and rich aromas of winter pear from the Champagne. Further spotlighting fine Scottish produce is our Roast Highland Pheasant Breast dish, which is paired with Lanson’s Gold Label 2005, known to complement rich game dishes. The 2005 Gold Label has powerful aromas of ripe and candied fruits with honey, enriching the taste of our lean pheasant.
Scottish Food & Drink Fortnight continues to reinforce the necessity to promote Scotland through our food and drink industry. At Cameron House we continue to pride ourselves on the fresh local produce that we use in order to create our mouth-watering menus at both The Boat House and Clubhouse at Cameron restaurants. We utilise suppliers all over Scotland including Campbells Prime Meats, The Fish People, Cairnhill Farm, Porrelli ice-cream, Clarks, Braehead Foods and Harviestoun Brewery.
