Gourmet Weekends & Cookery Courses

New for 2014 in response to client demand, we are delighted to offer guests the chance to visit Ormidale as individuals, couples, or small group, to enjoy a luxury all-inclusive Gourmet Weekend House Party catered by award winning chef Don McGovern of Osprey Catering.  

We are also launching two day mid-week residential cookery courses.  Don is a reknowned chef / tutor, with several of his pupils winning prizes and going on to attain professional success in kitchens all over the UK.

Formerly head chef at Michelin-rated Hopeton House in Edinburgh

Don has catered for Ormidale guests for the last year, with universally enthusiastic feedback and glowing testimonials.  He uses the finest seasonal and locally sourced ingredients, and your Gourmet weekend will see you tasting hand-dived scallops, locally reared, shot and hung venison, and Scotland’s finest beef. 

Your three day two night fully inclusive Gourmet Weekend will feature six course dinners each evening, and two gorgeous breakfasts, with three different Cooking Demonstrations available from Don on the Saturday.  Afternoon teas will also be served.  On Friday night we will have a whisky tasting led by one of the industry’s most knowledgeable and entertaining experts.  Drinks are included.
