Well Food Geeks, Summer appears to have finally made an appearance and there are some fab food (and drink) events to fill the warmer months on the horizon. One such event is next month’s Slow Food week, taking place from the 18th to 24th June, and to celebrate we’ve teamed up with Edinburgh restaurant Cafe St Honoré, in partnership with Highland Park single malt whisky, to offer you lucky folks a chance to win a special dinner and a bottle of the good stuff! Exciting, eh?
One food geek will win an invitation for themself and a friend to attend a special Slow Food and Highland Park dinner at the restaurant, prepared by Neil Forbes on Wednesday 20 June from 7pm. The winner will also take home a bottle of Highland Park 18 year old to enjoy however they may wish.
As well as the chance to sample some of the very best Scottish produce from a menu created by Scottish Chef of the Year 2011, each course will be matched by an expression of Highland Park single malt whisky, including Thor, which is the first whisky to be released from Highland Park’s new Valhalla Collection; a range of four unique whiskies, released annually, taking inspiration from the legendary Nordic gods of old. If that wasn’t enough, guests at the dinner will also experience a special tasting from one of Highland Park’s experts so you can impress your friends with some new found knowledge.
Have we tempted you yet?
