Regency Banquet a highlight of #Conflux9

The Conflux 9 Regency Banquet was held on Saturday night in the ballroom of the Rydges Capital Hill in Canberra.

With entertainment from Earthly Delights, the nearly 70 ball-goers minueted and reeled their way through a delightful evening.

While the dancing and costumes were charming, the undoubted highlight of the evening was the sumptuous Regency feast* prepared by the hotel’s chefs according to recipes created by Conflux’s own Gillian Polack.

Ball guests feasted on three incredible courses:

First Course

  • A pretty dish of eggs
  • Chicken forced with caper sauce
  • White mushroom fricassee
  • Mashed parsnips
  • Tomatoes
  • French beans
  • Almond cheesecakes
  • Brentford rolls

Second Course

  • Roast sirloin with mustard sauce
  • Salad with salad cream
  • Green peas soup
  • Savoury vegetables
  • Broccoli

Third Course

  • Burnt almonds
  • Ginger drops
  • Rice cake with raspberry cream
  • Almond jumbles
  • Moonshine pudding
  • Royal cake
  • Apricot ice cream

The recipes can be found in Five Historical Feasts by Gillian Polack, available from CSFG Publishing.

* Your correspondent, dear readers, is still feeling fabulously full from feasting. If you should hear no more from me, it is because I have expired. Do not be sad, dear readers, for I shall have died quite content.
