“A truly unique dining experience”
Reviewed 24 February 2013

The "Time Travel" set meal offers a unique dining experience combining high quality fresh cuisine with three different "Meissen" porcelain table settings, each representing distinctly different periods in the company's production history.

Starter - Pan Fried Scallops on a leaf salad bed with raspberry a infused dressing. Served on the Baroque period "Swan" dinner service with a seashell and flowing water motif, designed by by Johann Kaendler and first produced in Meissen in 1737.

Main Course - Roast Breast of Guinea Fowl with chanterelle mushrooms and Rosti Potato. Served on the "Full Green Vine Wreath" pattern dinner service, designed by Johann Arnold in 1817, to represent the vitality of fresh produce.

Dessert consisted of an Iced Parfait of brittle chocolate served with pineapple and fresh forest berries. This course was served on the modern styled "Woodland Flora" dinner service introduced in 1996 representing the subtle vibrant colours of a natural woodland setting.

A truly unique dining experience where sound cooking with flair and attentive polite service is coupled with a unique perspective directly related to the history of the Meissen factory
