Saturday’s Italian Gourmet Experience

Saturday night gave us a taste extravaganza at Adderley Village Hall. Four courses of amazing Italian Food served by an amazing young serving team and prepared by guest chef Harry Wilson.

Everyone was greeted with a glass of Prosecco and then Rachel from Nomad Wines in Market Drayton introduced a range of delicious wines to people to buy and have with their meal.

Our Italian guests at the Italian Gourmet evening commented that they were presented with exquisitely presented dishes that tasted wonderful and were fabulous in every way. Well done chef and the team of volunteers who made us feel very well looked after.

While everybody enjoyed antipasti served with homemade Caponata and locally sourced wild garlic pesto Chef Harry prepared a starter of ravioli with either lamb and tarragon or butternut squash. Next we moved on to a choice of wild mushroom risotto or gnocchi in a pizzaiola sauce served with sirloin steak on a bed of celeriac purée . While people washed this down with the excellent Nomad wines the kitchen summoned up a trio of deserts and the meal finished with coffees (or tea for those who preferred it)

thank you so much for organising the Italian evening. We all really enjoyed ourselves and the food was excellent. Such a lovely sociable evening and great atmosphere too.

This was a great evening and we hope we can look forwards to something else in a similar vein in the future. Many thanks to everybody who came and had a great time and also to the volunteers to supported chef in prepping and serving food not to mention washing up until the wee small hours.

Just to say many thanks for such a lovely Italian 🇮🇹 evening last night.  The food was amazing and you all looked after us very well 🥂🍷.  The young ones were a credit to you.

No Coffee Morning On The 30th

At the last coffee morning we talked about the next one and people felt that as it was Easter there wouldn’t be so many folk around and besides they would be eating their Easter eggs. So, no coffee morning on the 30th so we’ll have to save all of the news until April, when there’s a very special event so save the date and see you there.
