So sad to be missing the 2010 Game Feast. Hosted by Orlando Bridgeman and Patrick O'Connor. The Game Feast is an annual, intimate event of excessiveness, a celebration of winter food and drink, and a chance for people who appreciate the finer things in life to come together to compare notes. A luncheon at 4pm in the snowy climes of North Yorks. Sadly work, and it seems weather, confines me to Norfolk. But here's an amuse-bouche in the form of the Menu:
Harry's Essex Oysters - Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2000
Smoked game (or failing that, roast), celeriac rarebit - Troplong Mondot St Emilion 2004
Semi-hard cheese (St Nectaire, Tomme de Savoie, etc) - Tyrells Vat 1 Semillon 2002
Yorkshire gingerbread - Muscat De Frontignan, Chateau De La Peyrade
Aperitif - interesting sparkler/aperitif. Or Champagne.
Pheasant consommé - Sercial Madeira
Creamy Parmesan Custard - Robert Weil Kabinett 2001
Roast bone marrow on toast - Grapillon d'Or
Pasta with game sauce - Bocca di Lupa Tormaresca 2001
Haunch of venison - Rene Le Clerc Gevrey Chambertin 2002
Belgian chocolates, satsumas, clementines - Chateau Dereszla Tokaji Aszu 5*
Hard and semi-hard cheese - Troplong Mondot and whatever is left.
