We were proud to host a Charity Game Dinner; a celebration of game, dinner & dancing at our Creamery on Saturday evening, 28th April.
We hosted the Yorkshire Dales Moorland Group’s event in our very own, Calvert’s Restaurant, where we enjoyed stunningly tasty food thanks to our wonderful chefs and L&A Dent Game Dealers who generously provided all of the game for the menu.
Guests enjoyed a 5 course menu showcasing glorious game and of course, our famous Yorkshire Wensleydale cheese. Delights on the menu included Wild Duck and Ginger and Soy Spring Rolls, Bleiker’s Smoked Salmon and Horseradish Blinis, and Black Pudding and Wholegrain Mustard Bon Bons for the delicious canapes. Starters saw a stunning Farmhouse Pheasant and Duck terrine with Beetroot Sourdough with a Cranberry and Orange Relish. The Main Event was a highly skilled Grouse, Pheasant and Partridge Ballotine with a Chicken and Apple stuffing, Champ Potato and Seasonal Vegetables. The sharing dessert was a delectable Chocolate and Hazelnut Tart served with Stamfrey Farm Clotted Cream, and Lemon Posset with Rhubarb Compot and Home-made Shortbread. To round off, we served up our award-winning Yorkshire Wensleydale Creamery Cheese Board with Home-made Oat Biscuits and Chutney, including the tasty Kit Calvert, Wensleydale Blue, Yorkshire Brie, Yorkshire Cheddar, Naturally Smoked Cheddar and Blue 16! What a treat! Check out the gallery below to have a peek at what was served up – don’t look at this on an empty stomach though!
Each table was also sponsored by the following local businesses, Bainbridge Vets, Gilsans of Yorkshire, The CB Inn, L&A Dent, P.A Blackburn Ltd, Carter Jonas, Metalube (Rob Brown), Emmett (Colin Bailey), Owens Nutrition Ltd and R.W Brown Agricultural Engineer.
