As time passes in February we recieve more and more of your wonderful entries for ‘Come and Dine’ from around the world. Lady Carnarvon’s book ‘At Home at Highclere’ has provided the inspiration for so many of the dishes being served at your dinner parties which is truly lovely.
Here are a two videos of Lady Carnarvon preparing ‘potted shrimp’, a delicious starter to enjoy with dinner (or to accompany a favourite episode of “Downton Abbey”!) and ‘chocolate pots’, the perfect way to end your meal. For those who are yet to host their party this will provide the step by step instructions on how to prepare each course, but of course is also something to enjoy even if you have already submitted your ‘Come and Dine’ entry.
These chocolate pots are such a wonderful and decadent desert, which have been enjoyed by the Carnarvon family for many years. Lord Carnarvon made particular reference to them when choosing the wine as an accompaniment at a recent dinner party at the Castle, which you can see here.
