Brula Birthday

by | Mar 18, 2015 | General | 0 comments

I had the pleasure of being taken out to Brula last night in lovely St Margarets. This restaurant has been a stalwart of the local dining scene and has maintained a consisntly high quality reputation. My good friend friend Stefano Bergamin, who owns Bacco in Richmond has recently bought Brula and I’m sure he will bring another dimension in both quality and style.

We had a lovely meal. The chef delivers well defined French classics : scallops with a lobster bisque, rare Onglet steak, perfectly served lamb cutlets, rich beef cheeks and all followed by a classic Tarte Fine aux Pommes and a Mousse au Chocolat.

The wine list is refreshingly eclectic and true to its Southern French style while still happy to explore other regions. We enjoyed a delicious Malbec from Touraine which was a first for me. I look forward to seeing the new developments over the next few months.

“Throughout the 17 years I have attended Tim’s wine tasting events, he has continued to deliver his extensive knowledge of wine and wine-making with great charm, and lots of humour, making the evenings not only informative, but also great fun. In the course of an average year, the tastings cover a kaleidoscope of different wine themes – interesting and entertaining for all, novices and experts alike. And the wines taste pretty good too!”

“We have been going to Teddington Wine Society events for a number of years. Tim runs the evenings with bonhomie and humour and wears his considerable knowledge lightly. The evenings are great fun, the wines are always a little bit different and help to expand knowledge and tasting horizons.”

“I have attended the Richmond Wine society for over ten years and always enjoyed Tim’s self-effacing style and gentle humour. His knowledge is globally eclectic and presented in a clear, interesting and always stimulating way. Every guest I have taken there has enjoyed the evening immensely. Tim also offers a wide range of wines to buy and my red cellar has provided great pleasure to my own dinner guests.”

“I’ve been enjoying Tim’s tastings for over 20 years – he is a great teacher, raconteur and wine expert. He is seriously passionate about his wine, but there is nothing serious about his tastings, which are always informal and relaxed. A lovely way to spend an evening and enjoy some fantastic wines.”
