With fourteen years under his belt as Head Chef at the Dalmore Inn and restaurant in Blairgowrie, Iain Naysmith knows a thing or two about what his customers like.

His Valentine’s Day special menu is full of delicious combinations, showcasing the finest Scottish ingredients, which Iain uses with skill and imagination.

As a starter try a sharing platter – a hot honey baked camembert served with crusty bread and chutney. Or opt for a sweet chilli king prawn skewer with orzo pasta salad. There is plenty of freshness and colour in the third choice, a smoked chicken salad with watermelon, pomegranate and pinenuts.

For main course, the Dalmore has a fillet of salmon with Parma ham, served with asparagus, crushed potatoes and hollandaise sauce, or Iain’s home-made Thai green curry. There’s also a butcher’s hotdog, served with fries and homemade coleslaw.

Known for his home-made desserts, Iain has pulled out all the stops for Valentine’s Day, with a choice of either a passionfruit and mango posset with coconut sorbet, or another sharing option, the “Four Play” which provides four mini desserts to share together.

The Dalmore will also be offering its full regular menu, as well as the specials on the Valentine’s Day menu.

“Make sure you book soon, and don’t miss out on the chance to celebrate Valentines Day here at the Dalmore Inn,” said General Manager, Arnaud Merrouche.

“We have “specials” every day, as well as our regular menus, as we like to offer as much choice as possible,” he continued.

“We’ve certainly upped the ante for Valentine’s Day, and very much hope our customers enjoy the dishes. If couples really want to make it a sharing experience, they could have the camembert to share, then a main course of their choice, and then our playful four play dessert. Who knows, we may get a couple in on a first date, and they will find this experience a real ice breaker.”
