Curried Lentils – excellent with lamb and freshly baked bread
A guest has been trying to recreate a dish she tasted with us back in October 2014 but has admitted failure at all attempts, despite her perseverance!
Our Brasserie is one of the best restaurants in Loch Ness and a hot favourite has definitely been our shoulder of Black Isle lamb and on this occasion in 2014 we served it with curried lentils.
As a last resort our frustrated guest has decided to contact us for the recipe and we have been delighted to help! If anyone else would like a recipe from our Loch Ness restaurant, please get in touch on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our Brasserie is open 6:00pm – 8:30pm, Tuesday – Saturday until 5th April when it’ll be open all week – catering for all events and occasions. We look forward to welcoming you soon.
