Tucked away in the charming seaside village of St Monans is a hidden culinary gem – Sôlt Dining at East Neuk Salt Co. At the helm of this gastronomic adventure is Chef Patron & Co-Founder Mhairi Peattie, who passionately infuses every dish with the local flavours of the East Neuk.
Imagine a delicious blend of fresh local seafood, organic pasture-fed beef and lamb, and organic vegetables, all sprinkled with a touch of East Neuk Salt. It’s a love letter to local produce and a testament to sustainable dining that’s as delightful to the palate as it is warming to the heart.
Sôlt Dining is nestled in the courtyard of the East Neuk Salt Co. The experience is elevated with heated dining pods that blend into the picturesque garden environment. Imagine a cosy, warm pod, laughter of friends, and beautifully crafted food at your fingertips. It’s a dining experience that’s as cosy as it is enticing.
From the starter to the dessert, each dish at Sôlt Dining is a celebration of the land and the sea. Begin your gastronomic journey with the Nettle Soup garnished with Croutons and Wild Garlic Oil or the exotic Garam Masala Langoustines adorned with Coconut, Lime, and Chilli Chutney.
The main course presents a symphony of flavours with the East Neuk Salt Cured Balkaskie Brisket, paired perfectly with Mash, Roast Pink Lady Radish, Spring Greens, and Pan Gravy. Seafood lovers will relish the Pan Fried Hake, served with Saute Potatoes, Caramelised Onions, and Kale flowers, all drenched in a mouth-watering Prosciutto Cream Sauce.
End your meal on a sweet note with a French Brioche Toast topped with Vanilla Mousseline, Strawberries, and Almonds or the decadent Peanut Butter Mousse paired with Dark Chocolate Sorbet and Salted Caramel. Be sure to check the daily specials board for local shellfish options like Lobster Thermadore, Scallops, Razorclams, and local Mackerel.
Sôlt Dining is more than just a meal – it’s a celebration of the local East Neuk produce, a testament to sustainable dining, and a unique dining experience that will leave you with memories to cherish. And when you’re in St Monans, don’t forget to see how East Neuk Salt Co transforms the pristine local waters into the once-renowned “White Gold,” their specialty salt.
