Monachyle Mhor Hotel celebrates the return of summer with its Mhor Champagne & Oyster Extravaganza at its hotel in the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park in May.
Taking place on Monday 02 May, and hosted by chef Tom Lewis, the day will include woodland walking, foraging, food, drink, waterfalls, lochs and will begin and end at the award-winning Monachyle Mhor Hotel.
After two years of hospitality hardship, Tom Lewis, chef and owner of Monachyle Mhor, and his wife Lisa, are looking for new ways to support producers both hyper-locally and from around the UK, relying on this world-class produce, and a little bit of creative thinking, to bring joy to visitors post-pandemic.
Throughout the day Tom will serve up oysters from the West Coast of Scotland, showcasing the different flavour profiles of those from different bays, and matching these profiles with the selection of sparkling wines from Gusbourne (Sussex and Kent) and Charles Heidsieck (France).
Tom Lewis, chef, and owner at Monachyle Mhor, said, “It has been a really tough two years for everyone, not least for the hospitality industry, which was already dealing with the fallout from Brexit. However, now is the time to get up, dust ourselves off and see what we can do together, as a collective of food and drink producers, and indeed hospitality and tourism providers, to bounce back and bring some joy to visitors, be they staycationers or from overseas.
We like to do things a little differently at Mhor, and we also appreciate that things are still not ‘back to normal’, so we hope that by using the great outdoors as our stage we can once again put what we do – fantastic produce, great food and warm hospitality – front and centre, in a way that feels safe, but still exciting.”
