A lovely celebratory lunch in honour of a marriage register at the Hullet House, the beautifully restored old police station in TST.
The private room, albeit a freezing one, had magnificent wooden window frames and oriental styled chandeliers. The plush blue sofa and armchairs proved a comfortable post-meal resting place for young and old, though the finishing of the walls seemed a little hasty. Nevertheless, a lovely place for such an occasion.
With a dessert buffet and our persuasive hosts, we received platter upon platter of selected desserts brought to our table, which was very much welcomed. In particular, these chocolate items:
Chocolate creme brulee
This was a smooth and creamy treat, with a caramelised top. There were several other flavours of this, but chocolate, not surprisingly topped my list.
Dark chocolate truffle square
Wow, this was basically chocolate and cream. It was thick and a little sticky with a caramel center! Wow.
This is the most disappointing of the lot, as it was mainly cream with a thin layer of mousse. Tut tut.
Chocolate layered slice
Unable to enjoy the sponge base, that didn’t stop me. The other chocolate layers were rich and sweet to my liking.
