When you come to MacKechnie House, bring your appetite along. The food certainly reflects that Cathryn Thompson, host of MacKechnie House, is also a professional caterer. Breakfasts are delicious and varied. Starters could be Creme Caramel with strawberries, a tall tower of Amaretto - basted Baked Apples or Rhubarb Crumble with Creme Fraiche. The next course might be French Eggs in a Dijon Sauce, Ham with Apricot Mustard and a medley of Sauteed Mushrooms.
