Intimate Culinary Experience at The Signet Library

In July, our team had the sheer delight of curating a remarkable evening of unrivaled intimacy and culinary excellence. Nestled within the historic walls of the illustrious Signet Library, an unforgettable dinner experience unfolded.

To begin the evening, guests crafted their very own bite-size delights in a deliciously interactive affair of a ‘build your own canapes’ masterclass led by executive chef Paul Hood. One of the most beloved culinary creations, meticulously crafted by chef Paul, was the zero-waste puffed mull cheddar canapé. Paul transformed leftover cheddar rinds into light and airy cheddar puffs, resulting in a divine and sustainable explosion of flavours.

Some of the tasty canapes crafted by guests included:

  • Steak tartare, croustade, toasted walnut and truffle emulsion, plum tomato, and tobasco pearls.
  • Puffed mull cheddar, French onion gel, and crispy spring onions.
  • BBQ octopus, grape relish, kataifi, caviar, and sea herbs.

As the evening progressed, guests made their way to the Upper Library, a sanctuary of beauty and grandeur. Guests enjoyed an exquisite 3-course dinner curated by our team of chefs. And as the effervescent wines, meticulously selected by our company wine ambassador Frans, harmonised effortlessly with the dishes, every sip and every bite became an elevated moment of sheer indulgence.

From the enchanting decor that embellished the space to the tantalising culinary dishes, this very special evening at the Signet Library epitomised the pinnacle of an experience beyond food.
