Turnberry showcases taste of Christmas

The award-winning culinary team at Turnberry Resort will stage a Christmas food festival to showcase some of the best local produce available in the run-up to the festive season.
Taste Turnberry will be a true culinary celebration with the resort opening the doors to all its restaurants and bars, allowing visitors to sample the best food available at each venue. This includes The James Miller Room which was recently awarded with three AA Rosettes.
In addition to the tempting food on offer, the resort will also present the best of local retail from across Ayrshire in its festive showcase, providing Christmas gifts ideas from crafts and handiwork to children’s toys and local produce. Turnberry will also be selling Christmas cards in aid of local charity The Ayrshire Hospice.
Justin Galea (pictured above), Executive Chef at Turnberry Resort commented: “Christmas is the one time of year you can truly indulge in exquisite food and fine wines. This year, the Taste Turnberry menu will really raise the bar and we look forward to visitors sampling the very best produce from across the hotel while enjoying the beauty and elegance of the resort. The sample menus available will be tantalising tasters of some of our favourite festive dishes and will also give guests some great ideas for five-star entertaining at home.”
To mark the occasion Galea has also opened up his much-celebrated Chef’s Table, normally the private dining room of choice for VIPs and professional golfers. Visitors will be able to see the kitchen team in action whilst enjoying samples of the best food available anywhere in the resort.

The sports bar, Duel in the Sun, will also be welcoming guests, alongside Turnberry’s signature restaurant, 1906, where the best views of the sweeping coastline can be enjoyed. Meanwhile, the Grand Tea Lounge will be serving up their own festive treats in front of a roaring fire, offering a relaxing finish to the day’s festive shopping.

Justin continued:  “There’s no better place in the world to feel the spirit of Christmas than walking through the doors at Turnberry to a roaring fire and the twinkling lights of the Christmas tree, all enjoyed while you watch the weather sweep across the Irish Sea.”
Taste Turnberry takes place on Sunday 18 November 2012.  Tickets cost £29.50 per person which includes six tasting sessions and entrance to the festive showcase. To book, e-mail or telephone 01655 334 175.
