Apologies for the delay but to say thing are busy is the understatement of the year. We arranged a lunch and Rugby World cup jaunt for select 22 clients/colleagues. Leeds Rhino’s were trying to retain their World Club Challenge title against Manley of Australia but instead of doing the box at Elland Road, Dawn/Rosanna and myself came up with a 6 course gourmet lunch at Anthony’s, Exec Coach to Elland Road, Rugby match and return to Anthony’s for Cheese and nightcaps. We started at Whitelocks with a couple of pints of real ale then on to Anthony’s for pre lunch drinks, lunch consisted of 6 superb dishes;
Pea and Ham Hock Veloute
Pork Belly with Scallop and sweet potato puree
Wild fillet of Sea Bass with tomato and mussels
Roast Lamb with pomme fondant and roast jus
Pear Crumble with blackberry icecream
Vanilla pannacotta with all buttered shortbread
Wines were a Rioja and Petit Chablis
The match didn’t go to plan as the Rhino’s were beaten by a very talented Manley side 28-20.
A fantastic selection of cheeses from the Fromagerie was laid out for our return.
We can honestly say that our guests and ourselves were truly wowed. The service was top draw and the experience incredibly memorable, we will use the formula again. All in £150 per head including the Rugby.
