|Wine tasting & Sabrage Anniversary Dinner at Le Vacherin
Chef Patron Malcolm John to celebrate second anniversary with black tie event
June 2006 will see Chiswick restaurant Le Vacherin’s second anniversary. To celebrate, Chef Patron Malcolm John will be hosting a black tie Wine Tasting & Sabrage Dinner on Monday 12th June.
The seven course dinner will showcase classic French dishes that Le Vacherin has built its critically acclaimed reputation on. The menu will fulfil expectations and satisfy even the largest of appetites.
The evening will begin with a champagne reception and a demonstration of Sabrage, the opening of a bottle of champagne using a sabre. Twenty lucky diners will also have the opportunity to become a Sabreur or Dame Sabreuse during the event.
Dishes will be accompanied by wine from Julian White of Fine French Wines and champagne courtesy of Monsieur Philippe Brugnon, Premier Cru, Rilly La Montaigne.
The entire evening is priced at £70 per person.
Restaurants that host such events are called Caveaux de Sabrage and Le Vacherin became a Caveaux when they celebrated their first anniversary last year.
With delicious food and wine and champagne flowing, what better way to celebrate Le Vacherin’s second anniversary?
