The Pudding Club
We want to have some fun with Food and one thing all people love is those sweet things in life!!
So we have decided to start a Pudding Club at the Inn. This will be open to all residents of Fife and will take the form of "a night of Puddings" once a quarter and a chance to try some of the more unusual pudding wines from around the world.
We will also be starting a Newsletter for the club that we be very interactive with recipes from us and I hope you. We are looking for "The best Pudding for the 21st Century" so if you have a recipe that you have tried, eaten or even heard about and can explain it to us we will try to recreate. We will also feature it at one of our evenings. We want to make a recipe book that we can share with all our members.
So what does membership cost ? Not a lot!! Just £25.00 and for this you get your quarterly news letter, the first evenings food absolutely free and a £10.00 Voucher to join into a cookery demo at Myres Castle with Resident Chef /Mine host Drew McKenzie-Smith. Cost of a Demo at the Castle is £15.00 with a light lunch and a glass.

Violet uses "Leap Year" early!
During the Staff Christmas party on the 22nd December Violet (Manager of Inn Town) took the leap and asked Tim ( Our accountant and all round good egg) to marry her. He of course agreed and they have set the date for May 2000. We all wish them the very best for the future and as they have just got two kittens called "lambert and butler" I think we are fairly safe at the moment on the baby front!!
Recipes from Kai (Head Chef at Inn Town)
This is a great yet simple way to spice up an evening meal or have some friends over for a light lunch. It will serve 4.
For the meatballs, put the meat, onion, flour, paprika and seasoning in a bowl and mix thoroughly. With wet hands, divide the mixture into 16 pieces and shape into balls.
Heat oil in pan and carefully fry the meatballs until brown. Drain on paper and set aside then preheat oven to 180 c/ gas 6
To make the sauce , heat the oil in the frying pan and gently fry onion until softened. Add peppers and garlic; stir fry for 1 minute. Add the remaining ingredients, season well and bring to the boil, stirring.
Put the meatballs in a shallow ovenproof dish and poor over the sauce and bake for 20/25 minutes ( this could be speeded up by pre-cooking the meatballs)
Serve with light fluffy rice and a light green salad.
The History of Myres lives on!
Myres Castle was purchased by my brother and his wife last January and has undergone a major refurbishment. This has made sure the Castle will remain occupied and cared for well into the 21st century. But it is more than just the bricks and mortar that Myres has going for it. Due to the generosity and forethought of Captain Fairlie and Jenny , my sister-in-law, the Castle has managed to retain most of the houses history from the last 100 years that the Fairlie family where in residence. This makes Myres what it is today. A real treasure in the heart of Fife that now opens its doors to families, Stars, Businesses and people just wanting to experience such a unique place.
