We’re proud and delighted to see Loch Duart salmon on the menu for the banquet celebrating the BAFTA awards ceremony at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden, London, on Sunday (14th February).
The banquet, which features ‘the best of British food’, is being masterminded by Head Chef of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts awards, Anton Manganaro, in a huge operation involving 24 chefs and four kitchens to deliver food to 2,000 guests, including many stars of stage and screen.
Ahead of the dinner, the guests will first be served Tattinger champagne and a choice of four different canapés, including Loch Duart beetroot-cured salmon on a rye cracker with bergamot and dill mayonnaise.
At the dinner, the guests will sit down to beetroot marinated salmon followed by slow braised shoulder of lamb and a dark chocolate brownie with mousse, lavender cremeux and berry compote.
Needless to say, there are some happy smiles at Loch Duart today and we send our best wishes for a wonderful evening to Anton, the chefs, the organisers and all the guests.
We leave you with two further pictures of happiness – the wonderful selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic delights and the BAFTA mask-shaped chocolates the guests will enjoy alongside Loch Duart salmon.
