Last week I received an invitation that I just couldn’t pass up… an intimate cooking demonstration with Martin Wishart at The Honours, Malmaison, Glasgow.
We started the evening with a glass of champagne, which was just a delight! I do love some fizz!! This was then followed up by a cocktail masterclass. I made a gin cocktail (I forget the name already…oops!) and it was just divine.
I then felt very special indeed as we were escorted through to the kitchen for a demo with Martin. He made three dishes with the help of some willing volunteers… scallops (served raw), monkfish with chorizo and then a salad. You can check out the videos I posted on Instagram here. The dishes were gorgeous, and then we were further spoiled again back through in the bar area as the staff brought us dish after dish to try. Each and every plate was stunning… from the presentation to the taste.
I will most certainly be back, whether that is to continue with the cocktails or with a plus one (any takers??) for Le Weekend (chateaubriand for two including sides, wine and coffee for £60). On a Sunday to Thursday the Autumn Classics and Twists are just £5! There is a Mint Julep calling my name!
