Virtual Reunion Dinner

 

 

In celebration of Robinson's outstanding cuisine, Gary Dougan, our Head Chef, has prepared a delicious menu for all our virtual Reunion 2020 guests. Gary would like to invite you to take up on his challenge to cook up his menu at home. You will find all the details of the 'Rate My Plate' Competition, including full recipes, cooking instructions and photographs of the dishes to enable you to recreate the reunion dinner at home here. The menu is complemented by wines specially chosen by Robinson's Wine Steward, Dr Jossy Sayir.  You can read Jossy's tasting notes here.  In cooperation with Cambridge Wine Merchants, we have created a special Reunion College Alumni Case - September 2020, which can be viewed and purchased here. This offer is a pilot for our forthcoming Alumni Wine Club, From High Table to Your Table, and includes a discount for Robinson College members and a small donation to the College with every case sold. Bon appetit!
