Iconic champagne house Veuve Clicquot is partnering with renowned chef Sally Abé to present the La Grande Dame Garden Gastronomy tasting experience at The Pem restaurant in Conrad London St. James in Westminster this summer.
The tantalising new dining experience showcases the champagne house’s La Grande Dame 2015 with a bountiful array of local and seasonal garden vegetables picked in the morning and cooked in the afternoon.
The seven-course experience sees Veuve Clicquot and Chef Abé produce a ‘reversed dish approach’ which puts vegetables front and centre, while meat, fish and eggs are a condiment to the experience.
The menu includes standout dishes such as British garden peas, lemon grass and Exmoor caviar with Dorset Razor Clams; Griddled British Asparagus with Yorkshire pecorino, Cornish little leaves and preserved ceps, and aims to preserve the taste of exquisite produce until it reaches the plates.
“It has been a joy to create this menu with the bounty of the garden in mind. La Grande Dame 2015 pairs so perfectly with the abundance of summer vegetables the British countryside has to offer at this time of year. It is an ideal match and will be a pleasure to cook!” says Chef Abé.
La Grande Dame Garden Gastronomy will run from 8th June – 15th July, and reservations are available to book here.
