Reel of Fortune
It’s quite simply London’s classiest hotel so an invitation to a party in the Private Dining Room of The Goring is frame worthy. A promotion from mantlepiece to wall no less. Saturday night turns out to be an inimitable mix of stylish comfort and comfortable style, high fashion and high jinks; capturing the last gasp of summer, the curtains gently sway in the soft breeze. For starters, mains and after eight (or rather midnight) pudding:
- Eggs Drumkilbo
- Loch Duart salmon, rock oyster, green pepper and cucumber relish, oyster mayo, green pepper oil
- Dark chocolate mousse, raspberry, milk hibiscus ice cream, red sorrel
- Coffee and petit fours
There’s a distinctly Highlands fling feel to it all. Well, if it was good enough for the Queen Mother… The Castle of Mey comes to Beeston Place. A cake by Meghan Markle’s favourite baker? My gosh. That’s the icing on the proverbial. The silk wall hanging is divine. Everyone will have to stay! Carriages at dawn.
