AGM and Dinner at The Earl of March,
Lavant, nr Chichester,
West Sussex, PO18 0BQ

Wednesday 27th October 2021

The Earl of March is located in the southern reaches of the South Downs National Park and is a warm and welcoming establishment. Situated a short walk across fields to the Downs it is a mile North of Chichester.

On arrival a glass of Ashling Park Cuvé NV or Ashling Park Sparkling Rosé 2014. then seated for the starters; a Pressed Terrine of smooth Foie Gras and Confit Duck served with Sour Cherries which both opposed and complemented the Foie Gras flavours. Positive comments all round for this offering and a Chilean Novas Gran Reserva Riesling Bio Bio Valley proved to be excellent company. 

Next a fish course of Seared Scallop and Tempura Prawn with Bisque Foam, all presented in a large scallop shell. A smooth Domaine Papagiannakos Assyritiko Attiki from Greece matched well the flavours of the sea.

The main was Pan Roasted Breast of Local Pheasant and Partridge, Boulangerie Potato, Roasted Root Vegetables with a rich dark Game Madera Jus. A dish perfect for a late Autumn evening and the accompanying Pinot Noir, a Domaine Valmoissine Louis Latour –France was rounded and smooth.
A very pleasant Tarte Tatin, with Sussex Apple and Blackberry for dessert served with Bourbon Vanilla Ice Cream proved to be very popular, as did the glasses of Italian Palazzina Moscato d’Asti Piemonte served as the dessert wine.

Coffee or tea to finish before carriages at the end of the evening.

As always a splendid event hosted by Solent Vice-Conseiller Culinaire, Mr. Giles Thompson, and a special thank you to both the kitchen and front of house staff for the excellent food and wine that we have come to expect at The Earl of March.
