The place is stunning. Not just the usual wow-look-at-that-view gorgeous, but the sort of place that takes your breath away
Did you see the restaurant review of The Torridon in Scotland on Sunday? Richard Bath visited a few weeks ago on a tour of Wester Ross and sang the praises of our food and setting. It seems he had been looking forward to the trip for quite a while.
The Torridon’s head chef has some truly amazing produce to hand, ranging from their own herd of Highland cattle and a superb walled garden, to the wild fare from the hills and nearby seas, and has developed a reputation for producing innovative yet accessible menus
His companion Bea was just as keen and had a great time.
Bea was in raptures over her main course of pan-fried seabream with herb gnocchi, butternut squash and purée and a nicely nuanced red wine dressing. Simple but faultless, it was exactly what was required to showcase the outstanding ingredients of the area
Talking of showcases, Richard Bath had a real dilemma with his dessert:
a pudding of glazed banana and chocolate bread with caramel mousse, peanut cannelloni and peanut brittle. Disassembled and artfully arranged, this looked so exquisite I wasn’t sure whether to eat it or frame it
We always recommend eating it!
If you would like to do the same, come and try The Torridon Restaurant soon.
