A Grand Fine Swine with Good Wine

16/September – Grand Hotel, Burnley

We have been to a number of food and wine events at the Grand Hotel in Burnley, e.g. the Wednesday Duck and Pinot night, and this was a special one. Many thanks to Katie and the Grand staff as well as Adam Foster of Syrahmi wines and Foster y Rocco, with well known sommelier Lincoln Riley, who supplied all of the wines tonight.

We are here for Pig but the menu is pretty impressive too, not just pig.

I had had to Google Cobia to find out what it was, very King Fish like and quite tasty.

Definitely a very good night. The Grand Hotel Richmond (Burnley) is highly recommended. Get on their VIP list!
