ret2_MG_8384_copy.jpg


Morton of Pitmilly countryside resort has teamed up with Fife’s very own food ambassador Christopher Trotter to offer several fabulous short breaks of pure foodie heaven.

LOAVES AND FISHES

Our gastronomic experience offers the chance to try your hand at producing traditional Scottish baked goods including butteries and oatcakes in addition to learning (or honing!) techniques on the selection, preparation and cooking of fresh fish.

DAY 1

Arrive in the evening to one of Morton of Pitmilly’s warm welcomes and get comfortable in your luxurious five-star accommodation.  Thereafter, join us for a welcome drink and chat over canapés to discuss the next day's events.  Christopher will then prepare a simple meal for your enjoyment using fresh seasonal Fife produce.

DAY 2

After breakfast you are straight into the kitchen where the sleeves are rolled up and we start our bread doughs and butteries. We will then hop into the car for a trip along the stunning Fife coastline to Fife's only cheesemaker, Jane Stewart.  Jane makes cheese using milk from her husband Robert's dairy herd. You will have the chance to see some of the process in action and taste the end result! We will then collect fish and other seasonal ingredients for our evening meal before returning to Pitmilly to make soup for lunch and complete the bread as a perfect accompaniment. 

In the afternoon we will begin to prepare dinner and you will learn about creating delicious stocks and sauces for fish.  After a break to explore the many leisure facilities of Pitmilly, or indeed just relax, we reconvene to appreciate a tasting of fine wine.  We shall then bring the fish dishes to completion and enjoy dinner complemented by the expertly selected wines - a perfect end to a perfect day.

And so to bed with a rich culinary experience embedded in the rural landscape of Fife.

DAY 3 

In the morning there is time after breakfast to discuss with Christopher how and where to go to purchase any of the items that you have used during your stay (yes - including the wines!)  Following this, the day is your own to either depart or to indulge in a further special day and night (costing an additional £50 per person) in the beauty of the grounds here at Morton of Pitmilly.

Please contact stay@pitmilly.co.uk for more information. Cost per person is £299 including 2 nights in 5 star accommodation, a breakfast hamper and Christopher's food and wine.
