The Italian Feast

Some seventy guests sat down to the Paul and Pablette's Traditional Italian Night at the Kilchoan Hotel last night, and they got what they were promised on the menu - a "celebration beyond compare" of Italian food.

Picture shows the antipasti selection which included a piedmontese speciality vitelli tonnato, bruschetta, roasted sundried tomatoes, mozzarella on tomato, roasted artichoke hearts, olives and caper berries.  The main course offered a selection of pizzas, five pasta dishes including our favourite, a salmon and spinach ricotta tortellini, and Paul's speciality, a superb seafood risotto served by him on scallop shells.

There were some at our table who struggled to face the cheese and sweet courses.  The dishes in the neat little containers included tiramisu and panna cotta, but the highlight of the sweets was....

....a chocolate fountain.

The food was great, but it was made all the more special by the pride with which Paul, Pablette, Sarah and their staff presented it.  We thought it was a first class meal but, to test its true quality, I asked two Italian residents of Kilchoan what they thought, and their verdict was a huge smile and "Buono!"

Many thanks to Ben McKeown for the pictures.
