New Wine Dinner Series
We’re very pleased to offer a new, regular feature on our menu – a three-course Wine Dinner that is inspired by a particular winemaker, group of winemakers, or a growing region, with cuisine specifically chosen to pair with these wines.
From Thursday, February 21 through Wednesday, March 6, we are featuring the wines of Catherine & Pierre Breton, from Bourgueil in France’s Loire Valley. The Breton’s are longstanding ambassadors of Loire Valley’s potential; their delicious range of biodynamic Bourgueils, Chinons, and Chenin Blancs have earned accolades within natural wine circles – and beyond – for over 20 years.
On February 21st, Catherine will be at Telegraph to celebrate this new menu with us. An engaging ‘bon vivant’, she’ll be dining with us at the chef’s table, and, along with her friend Christine Campadieu (of Tour Vieille in Collioure), will be available for questions and conversation.
Fingerling potato salad, walnuts, Capriole Farms chevre
Breton ‘Avis de Vin Fort’
Cured foie gras, black tea, prunes
Confit pork shoulder, cipollini onion, braised greens
