Shropshire Business Successes

A culinary celebration of Shropshire businesses was held at the Boyne Arms in Burwarton

Leisure industry experts were brought together by Jamie Yardley, Chef proprietor of The Boyne Arms and Clive Dickinson of Class Wine Direct, who created a menu which was complimented by a range of wines by Bridgnorth based Rollo Gabb, of Journeys End wines, who specialise in producing and supplying quality accessible South African wines from their own vineyards, which are distributed in the region by Clive Dickinson of Direct.

The four course menu using locally sourced Burwarton Beef, and Brock Hall Farm Dairy Goats Cheese, from Chelmarsh, was concluded with a selection of desserts created by Bridgnorth based Louis Barnett of Chokolit, who worked closely with Jamie to create the selection, using his hand made chocolate. ‘It was a real pleasure working with Louis, he is a remarkable young man, who managed to teach me, and my pastry Chef Chris a thing or two about chocolate. We were so impressed, that we will be creating a different dish for our daily menu with Louis every month for people to try”.  James Day, of Gourmet Life dining club who was present at the event added ”This sort of Gourmet event just goes to show how diverse our region is in respect of producers, and suppliers, and working alongside accomplished chefs like Jamie, and of course Louis of Chokolit, just shows that good food can be fun”

Clive Dickinson who has been working closely with Rollo Gabb added “The wine selection that Journey’s End have created is certainly versatile, and has been very well received over recent weeks by our customers, and working with Jamie, to create the menu has been a real pleasure – It was a fantastic night, and we look forward to working with them again in the future.”
