The Holidays at Monarchs House

The Holidays at Monarchs House

Monarchs House's Chef Kevin Low

Kevin Low has been the chef at Monarchs House since we opened in 2001. And if well over a thousand visitors to Monarchs House are to be trusted, Kevin is St Andrews’ best chef.  Naturally, we wholeheartedly agree but it is his demeanor, in addition to his cooking, that makes Kevin such a pleasure to be around. He is as equally quick with a smile as he is with a whisk.

Over the years, Monarchs House has hosted many visitors during the holidays and that will be the case again this year. Thanksgiving is solely a US holiday but on many occasions, Kevin has prepared a beautiful Thanksgiving meal for our visitors. We asked Kevin to share  his menu for this Thanksgiving at Monarchs. What do you think?

    First time in Scotland, and it wont be the last. Our visit to Monarchs House (8 guys) was a wonderful experience, one we will never forget. Your staff of Kevin, Olive and Sue were truly magnificent, nothing too much trouble. The golf courses are to die for, shame i could not play them.Thanks again for a wonderful time.

    Monarchs House has done us proud once again! I led a group to Scotland from Surrey, England and recommended we stay at The Monarchs House having stayed there on my previous visit. Kevin and his team did not disappoint! I speak for the whole group in saying a big thank you to Kevin, Olive and Sue for making our stay so special. We will definitely be back and if we are in St Andrews, there is only one place to stay.
    A hidden gem! Memories to cherish and a return a certainty!
