Christmas night out

On Saturday 15th December, Chefs In Scotland had their Christmas night out at Brodie’s. Myself, Jessica, Johanna, Michael, Tom and Lindsey met in the gin bar before being shown to our table. We enjoyed some lovely gins in the cosy gin bar situated next to the restaurant. I had a candy floss prosecco, gin cocktail whilst everyone else enjoyed the popular gin and tonic. We were taken to our table in the restaurant where we had a private area situated next to the kitchen. Decorated with a lovely Christmas branch and baubles and of course, the traditional Christmas crackers. We had pre – ordered during the week so our food arrived promptly. Myself, Jessica and Lindsey had the Duck bon bons served with a spiced plum sauce and pickled blackberries, which I highly recommend. Johanna had sun dried tomato and basil arancini, Michael had the baked mushroom terrine served with celeriac remoulade and sourdough toast and Tom had the Tomato soup served with freshly baked bread.

Our main meals followed shortly after. Myself, Johanna and Lindsey had the Turkey Wellington with stuffing, accompanied by a caramelised onion, sautéed vegetables and gravy, I always enjoy a dash of cranberry sauce with my turkey. Jessica and Michael had the stuffed pheasant breast served alongside winter cabbage, lentils and bacon whilst Tom opted for the vegetarian option of a sweet potato and quinoa fritter served with guacamole and lime.

We were giving time to settle our stomachs before being served dessert. Myself and Johanna opted out of dessert whilst everyone else tucked in. Jessica and Tom had the hazelnut and chocolate torte served with Frangelico syrup; I must admit I had serious food envy! Lindsey and Michael enjoyed a traditional cheeseboard accompanied by homemade fruit chutney and crackers. Coffee and fresh mince pies were offered shortly after.

Brodie’s was certainly a good choice for our Christmas night out, from start to finish the service and food was excellent. The staff were very attentive and professional and we will definitely be back again.
