Kerry headed to Gorgie Farm last night to celebrate their 40th Birthday (and Fred Berkmiller’s) too.
The menu was ‘All About the Goat’. I know! She won’t be telling her god-children! The five course menu started with: a welcome cocktail from the boys at Arbikie; followed by Gorgie City Farm Boer Goat’s Terrine; Homemade Pasta Genovese; Beer Goat Casserole featuring vegetables from Gorgie City Farm and Newton Walled Garden; a flight of Italian and French Goat’s Cheeses; and finally finished with a very sticky Seadas, a traditional Sweet Sardinian Fritter, stuffed with goats’ cheese and smothered in honey. All served ‘family-style’, it made for a great evening with everyone leaving well and truly full.
Pilot beers from Leith provided the beers on the night, which were all matched to complement the food. Kerry’s favourite was the Mochaccino Stout Unfined, which accompanied the cheese course. A sweet, indulgent milk stout, with an exclusive coffee roast, organic cocoa nibs, vanilla and lactose, she reckons it would also be fantastic to cook with. Watch out in the future for one of her creations.
