Dinner for Prince Harry
Last Tuesday, some 260 specially invited guests got to dine with Britain's Prince Henry of Wales at the historic King's House in St Andrew. Governor General Sir Patrick and Lady Allen were the perfect hosts.
But, just what did Prince Harry eat? Here are the menu items catered by New Kingston's Jamaica Pegasus hotel, with wine selections by guest sommelier Michael Reckord.
For the first course, the curry flavour was very light; in the salad, the naseberry was evident but pleasantly subtle. The sorbet was tangy and was a tad tart while in the main course the pepper in the yam croquette brought it to life. The beef tenderloin was excellent, but I was disappointed with the bass fillet. However, I was very pleased that the carrots were locally grown. Dessert was divine.
Finally, the peitit fours were, served with freshly brewed Blue Mountain coffee, of course and a selection of teas. This was paired with a delightful Cockburn's Special Reserve.
Well done guys!
The champagne used for the main toasts was Bollinger Special Cuvée.
