Bumpkin’s Winter Menu 2014

As the temperature starts to dip and winter nips at our ankles, I can’t help but think back to Bumpkin’s winter menu tasting and feel warm inside. Bumpkin Winter Menu

Except, our evening didn’t take place inside but outside in Bumpkin’s beautiful garden with pretty lights and a welcoming warm ambiance.

The warmth also came from a couple of delicious cocktails which kicked off the evening. This one here is the Plum Pudding, which includes fresh plum, plum liquor, Vanilla Vodka and Disarono Amaretto. It was heavenly and so I took my time with each sip to savour the flavours. Bumpkin Winter Menu

For my starter, I had the Sloe Gin Salmon with English caviar and cucumber which I very much enjoyed.

And for my main I had the Highland Venison, Savoy cabbage, crispy bacon and game chips which was tasty all over. I tend to fear that food envy may strike me at any point but during this evening, I was very happy with my choice.

I wish I could wax lyrical about the merits of this fine bottle of wine but sadly for my limited knowledge, the sound of my tastebuds doing a fine dance was too loud for me to take in any of the sommelier’s expertise.

These scallops, which were available as a starter or main, almost triggered my food envy … Bumpkin Winter Menu… as did this Salmon Wellington.

To complete the meal, I thought I’d end on a cocktail note and so I ordered this Apple Crumble, which included 8 Pampero Rum shaken with apple juice and butterscotch schnapps. It was so good and it felt like I was sipping a dessert …

… but of course, I couldn’t resist pudding itself and so I tried this Warm Vanilla Sponge with gooseberry jam and toasted almond ice cream.

I attended a bloggers dinner at Bumpkin. My words are all true. The dinner and drinks were delicious.
