Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

Ever wonder what it takes to become a chef? Students at EH15 are finding out and it turns out being their guinea pig is very rewarding. With a view of the Pentland Hills spanning the dining room that professional venues would kill for, trainee chefs test their skills by creating impressive four-course meals. And all for the price of what you’d pay for a single course in town. Menus change frequently, but start with an antipasto platter, with basil-bright pesto bedazzling chargrilled vegetables. Or allow friendly wait-staff to carve gin-cured smoked salmon dressed with caper berries and pickled cucumber at the table. Pan-fried sea bass glistens in puddles of creamy fish sauce and pink lamb rump rests in dark, clingy Madeira jus. To finish, relax over a tangy tall orange soufflé with deep chocolate ice-cream or delicate espresso custard tart with pecan brittle and delicate vanilla parfait. Sure, there are some rough edges and you as a diner are very much part of the learning process, but the experience is a pleasure, the students eager and the food is very enjoyable.
