Delifonseca to Pay Homage to British Poets at Food Events

Raising a ‘wee dram’ on Wednesday, January 25, The Dockside venue will host an annual ‘Taste of Burns’ Night celebration in honour of the famous Scot with a three-course menu featuring traditional Scottish delicacies on Wednesday 25th January.

Proprietor of Delifonseca, Candice Fonseca said, “Year-on-year we raise a toast to one of Scotland’s most famous bards and celebrate the very best of Scottish food. Our chefs have devised a menu that combines great quality Scottish produce with much loved authentic recipes that stand the test of time. Early diners will have the added bonus of enjoying a complimentary Scotch whisky to join us in raising a wee dram.”

A Shakespeare Wine Evening will take place on the following day (Thursday 26th January) at the Stanley Street venue’s ‘Downstairs’ bar. Hosted by the team at Fonseca’s, in collaboration with the Rubbish Shakespeare Company, the night will celebrate the art of 16th century cuisine, whereby each dish will be paired with wines from Shakespeare’s popular haunts and will revolve around a theatrical performance.

General Manager at Fonseca’s, Danielle Youds said, “As with all of our wine evenings, which continue to remain a firm favourite with our guests, the idea is to allow people to sample a range of drinks and dishes that have been selected to complement one another. With a nod to old England and European influences, the Shakespeare Evening does just that in a playful manner courtesy of The Rubbish Shakespeare Company’s witty live theatrical performances.”
