Lancaster House will be celebrating Lancashire Day and its 20th Birthday in true red-rose style this Sunday by offering a Lancashire Sunday Lunch menu with a difference.
To mark the county’s big day and the hotel’s two decades in business, Lancaster House is serving a 20-course Lancashire tasting menu on Lancashire Day, November 27th 2011 at the very special price of just £20. It’s thought to be the largest tasting menu ever served in the county.
Just 20 places are available for the exclusive meal which will be served in the Hotel’s Lancashire-themed Foodworks Restaurant from 1pm. Head Chef, Damien Ng will be celebrating the produce of the county in each course with some well-known Red-rose favourites as well as using the best produce from local suppliers.
Dishes on the “Taste-of” menu include contemporary and traditional twists on Morecambe Bay Shrimps, Bury Black Pudding, Minted Lancashire Hot Pot, Bowland Pig Cheek, plumb and cream cheesecake, chocolate sticky toffee pudding and Lancashire Cheeses.
“We wanted to celebrate Lancashire Day and our own 20th birthday by doing something really special,”
“Tasting menus don’t normally include more than ten dishes but we wanted to create a menu that would show the diversity and quality of the great produce and recipes that come from Lancashire.
“Restaurants like ours are fortunate to have access to some fantastic produce on our doorstep. As well as having some well known traditional recipes, we’ve seen local produce in the county go from strength to strength over the last decade or so.
“It is going to be a big challenge both for the team in the kitchen to prepare so many different dishes but also for the waiting staff who will have to move particularly quickly to get each of the dishes out to our guests.
“There’s no need to worry about how you are going to get through twenty dishes! Each course on a tasting menu is a small sample of a traditionally much larger dish but still encompassing all the flavours and balance. So hopefully everyone can complete their culinary journey of this great county.
Lancaster House, was opened in 1991 by HRH Princess Alexandra and has enjoyed two decades of success, winning many awards including twice-named “Lancashire Large Hotel of the Year”, “Taste Lancashire Highest Quality” and more recently Gold Status in The Green Business Tourism Scheme.
