SPRING INGREDIENTS AT BLYTHSWOOD SQUARE

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestGoogle+

We can’t help getting excited about the signs of Spring at Blythswood Square, Glasgow. The first sight of pretty little crocuses and snowdrops around the city really gets us in the mood to start thinking Winter is over, so what’s next.

‘Spring is an amazing season. After the dull Winter months, lots of bright colours are present during the Spring. It’s like new life is sprouting and lots of new energy goes into creating the dishes.’ Martin Thliveros, Executive Head Chef, Blythswood Square. It’s no secret that when it comes to taste, eating flavoursome seasonal food with the best crunch and colour is the way to go. Scotland produces a huge variety of foods throughout the year, with Spring being no exception.

The new dishes that will appear on the menus at Restaurant at Blythswood Square will enjoy flavours and textures from peas, broad beans, watercress, asparagus, leeks, purple sprouting broccoli, parsnips and cauliflower. Not forgetting sea trout, which is amazing and available from April. And of course a well known favourite seasonal food, Scottish lamb.

HOME GROWN
This year we are super excited as some of our ingredients will be home grown, thanks to Fresh Direct. They are proud to be a non-corporate, family owned business that haven’t forgotten their roots and still represent the same passion for quality, service and values that they were built on – way back in 1966 in their modest beginnings as a mobile greengrocer operating out of an Austin 3-tonne van.

This exclusive partnership, enables Blythswood Square to be the one of the first luxury hotel and restaurants in Scotland, to take their produce from our own plot of land directly to our customers plate.

The land is based just outside Glasgow and our first crops will be planted by the kitchen team in mid March. There is much excitement amongst the team as to what should be planted first. We are likely to start with lots of under the soil vegetables such as carrots, various beets, celeriac and parsnips.

We look forward to posting videos and pictures of our progress over the coming months along with recipes of some of the special dishes that will appear on the Market Menu and the A La Carte Menu.

I am sure there will be lots of trial and error topped with a huge heap of fun and passion along the way!

BLYTHSWOOD SQUARE AFTERNOON TEA LAUNCH

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestGoogle+

Lorraine Kelly Launches Afternoon Tea at Blythswoood Square…

Traditional afternoon tea has returned to Blythswood Square in Glasgow with the arrival of The Salon within the city’s newest five star hotel.

Lorraine Kelly is amongst the first to enjoy the delicious treats served at the luxury Blythswood Square which has stunning views across one of Glasgow city centre’s last green spaces.

She said: “Afternoon tea is just so civilised. You can go along with your friends to celebrate a birthday or an engagement or have a mother and daughter day, but it doesn’t need to be a special occasion, you could just feel like giving yourself a well deserved treat.”

Creating the perfect afternoon tea menu is a real skill and Dan Hall, Executive Chef at Blythswood Square has created a simple but delectable afternoon tea menu. Small bite-sized sandwiches, home-made scones with jam and cakes which will make your mouth water are served on traditional cake stands together with a selection of leaf teas or freshly brewed coffees. For those who wish to spoil themselves even further, then a glass of champagne is a perfect accompaniment.

Blythswood Square opened its doors last November and has quickly established itself as one of the most popular venues in Glasgow for lunch, dinner, mouth watering cocktails and now afternoon tea.

Hans Rissmann, Managing Director of The Town House Collection and General Manager at Blythswood Square said: “We know that when Blythswood Square was the former Royal Scottish Automobile Club it developed a reputation for serving afternoon tea for everyone from business people to ladies taking a break from their shopping. We were very keen to continue that tradition in our own hotel and The Salon is the perfect place to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Afternoon tea is gaining in popularity generally and has become something of a tradition within our Edinburgh hotels. We are now delighted to be able to invite the people of Glasgow to join us to share the tradition.”

Blythswood Square has a number of Afternoon Tea options including a cream tea priced at £9.50 per person, a traditional afternoon tea, priced at £20.00 per person and champagne afternoon tea at £30.00 per person. If you are really looking to treat yourself you can choose to have afternoon tea accompanied by free flowing vintage rosé champagne for £75.00 per person!
