Christmas Menu at Marco Pierre White Newcastle

Autumn is officially here which means I'm secretly on the count down to Christmas. 

I'm already getting questions on where is good in Newcastle for a pre Christmas get together with friends. I went to Marco Pierre White in Newcastle with a few of my blogging friends to give their Christmas menu a try. 

MPW is located in Hotel Indigo on Fenkle street and is the perfect location for the train station and Metro routes. 

To kick start the delicious 3 courses I went for Velouté of carrot and pumpkin with parmesan croutons. 

This delicious soup was so tasty the perfect winter starter to get you warmed up. The croutons were crunchy and bursting with flavour. I did opt for the soup as I knew 3 courses would be filling but the bowl of soup was huge. I couldn't finish it all as I was conscious of the following two courses that were to come. 

Along with the traditional Turkey dinner complete with pigs in blankets and lashings of gravy, which does just look like Christmas on a plate. 

However as I am now a pescatarian I went for the Severn and Wye smoked haddock and leek fish cake topped with a poached egg and sauce tartare.

I was pretty impressed with the way way the fishcake was presented on the plate, it also tasted as good as it looked. The runny yolk that topped the fishcake was cooked to perfection. Usually I am not a fan of tartare sauce but I think the one I had at MPW may have made me change my opinion as it was so delicious. 

Also too full to think about anymore food I was presented with fresh banana, meringue and caramel mess and vanilla ice cream to round off my meal. 

I love eton mess, this is kind of like a Winter version of the traditional Summer pudding that we have grown to love. It tasted just as good as this pudding sounded. So creamy and rich. It was safe to say at the end of this I was ready to be rolled home. 

I did feel slightly odd eating my first Christmas dinner towards the end of September but the food was so good it just got me slightly over excited for all the exciting Christmas festivities to come. 

The Festive Menu is available for lunch and dinner between the 1st and 24th of December. 3 course lunch £27.00 and 3 course dinner £33.00 children under 12 dine half price. For further information head to MPW website
