Guests attending the recent Grampian Food Forum Dining Club held at Trump International Golf Links, near Balmedie, rated the culinary event well above par.

More than 70 forum members had the opportunity for information exchange within the clubhouse and brasserie before enjoying an imaginative six-course taster menu celebrating the theme of Scotland.

The courses included Speyside pork terrine, compressed apple and white pudding bonbons followed by a hazelnut chocolate ganache served with caramelised white chocolate and blood orange sorbet.

Trump food and beverage manager Chris Hodgens said: “We know that the Forum is held in high regard and we were delighted to have the opportunity to showcase the level of excellence that you would expect with a five-star dining experience.”

Stuart Common, commercial director with Mackie’s of Scotland, represented the Grampian Food Forum for the evening and introduced guest speaker Sarah Malone, executive vice-president at Trump International.

She gave the audience an interesting insight into the world-class facilities and its achievements to date.
