Firstly, did you even know that you can dine at the Milton Keynes College Bletchley campus? Well you certainly can. You can even hire out the venue for your own events and parties.
I was invited down by the MK College team to dine in their beautifully refurbished brasserie and to enjoy a little taster of what’s on offer this Autumn/Winter.
The Brasserie is looking mighty fine after its refresh. Warm brown comfortable chairs compliment the navy blue bench seats and yellow cushions. And I am totally in love with their use of copper. Stunning contemporary tealight holders, pendant lighting and utensils hanging on the wall…it just looks so cool.
Take a moment to appreciate the wine glass chandelier hanging in the centre of the room, which is over the table Ian and I were lucky enough to dine at. There was even a TV on the wall enabling us to watch our meals being prepared in the kitchens behind!
The Brasserie at Milton Keynes College is not just like any old restaurant, they were awarded the prestigious AA College Rosette: Highly Commended which adds to the rosettes they won in both 2015 and 2016 too.
All meals are prepared by the stars of the future restaurant world, so dining there means you are supporting the next generation – which I think is a pretty important factor of why you should give The Brasserie a whirl.
Now before I even mention what we had to eat, I simply have to tell you that everything we had was simply divine. I mean, that’s it. You needn’t even read on past this line. Just book a table.
But if you’re adamant you need to know what we had and see some pictures of delicious food to taunt you whilst you eat your boring cheese sandwich for lunch, read on…
Usually me and Ian both go for a different meal and try a bit of each, but this time we both had eyes for the same thing. For us, the beef rib and tiramisu just had to be ordered!
Before our dinner was served, we were treated to a little pumpkin amuse-bouche which was absolutely divine and I wish I asked for the recipe (not that I cook…). It was beyond tasty.
We were so suitably impressed when the beef rib arrived to our table. It was presented so beautifully. But oh my goodness did this meal taste gorgeous! The meat was perfectly cooked, just fell off the bone and just tasted so amazing. The vegetables were just as amazing, and that garlic mash? Heavenly.
Dessert was definitely not disappointing either. Our Tiramisu came in a deconstructed form, which was really different. I wasn’t sure what to expect at first, but as I delved into the soft cakey pieces and whipped up little bits of cream and chocolate from the plate, I was in love. What a dessert.
What an entire meal!
We were so impressed with every part of the meal. The food, drink, service, atmosphere, room, it was all so wonderful. They really are worth the visit and I’d 100% go back to support them and dine in their beautiful brasserie every day if I could!
