This is the first part of a two part post. According to their home page Ayers House is ” is a boutique wedding and events venue…the very essence of Adelaide elegance.
Seeking a glamourous venue, with the charm of a country estate, in a city location? Then you have found it! Ayers House is a grand stately mansion of Colonial Regency/Victorian opulence, beautifully restored to modern vintage style. Everything here is on a grand scale, the driveway sweeps, the chandeliers illuminate and the celebrations are legendary.”
As it happens my daughter has chosen Ayers house to host her wedding reception. Last week we, the wife and I, my daughter and future son-in-law, went to Ayers House to sample some of the food that we can select on that auspicious night.
Walking into Ayers House was like walking into a bit of the past as it is truly a piece of Adelaide history. Architecturally it is a marvel to hold. I could only hope that its cuisine was just as exquisite.
My Ayers House Food Review
You can see in the image above exactly what we were presented with. We were more than happy to share each others dishes so we could sample as much of the cuisine that will be on offer on the night.
Silver Whiting Fillets Crumbed & Pan Fried
on a salad of roasted zucchini, almonds, parsley & pancetta with basil & tomato dressing
Goats Cheese Souffle Twice Baked
with baby beetroots, pickled pumpkin, tomato/mint salad & green tahini dressing (V) (GF)
For me the silver whiting was favourite. It was exquisite and truly a taste sensation. That’s not to say that the souffle was nice, just that it wasn’t as nice. The only thing that I thought was a little weird is what I thing was the pickled pumpkin.
Chargrilled Fillet Of Beef
with broccolini, bacon jam, slow roasted tomatoes & basil butter (GF)
Roasted Chicken Breast Wrapped In Prosciutto
on green pea puree with grilled baby onions, wild mushroom cream and barley crunch
The presentation of the main menu was stunning and I’m pleased to say that both dishes were received by all as very pleasurable to the palate.
White Chocolate & Honey Pannacotta
broken baklava, poached dried fruits & rosewater syrup
Belgian Chocolate Mousse Slice
with hazelnut cookies n’ cream ice cream & espresso martin syrup
Once again while both desserts were delicious the white chocolate and honey pannacotta was unanimously voted as the favourite.
We all had a great night and are now waiting with baited breath for the wedding night so that we can enjoy a great night of feasting with family and friends.
Stay tuned for part II. How good is Ayers House as a wedding venue?
