La vie en rosé: Moët and Chandon pink dinners

2419

Like Audrey Hepburn, Moët & Chandon believes in pink. This March, the French winery is hosting an elegant, pink-themed dinner party to celebrate the iconic colour. The company holds a Royal Warrant to supply champagne to Queen Elizabeth II, so the evening will surely be extravagant. 

Two notable Belgian chefs — Bert Meewis, chef at Slagmolen Opglabbeek, and Lionel Rigolet, chef at Comme chez Soi — helped develop the evening’s menu specifically to pair with Moët and Chandon’s Rosé Imperial, so the dinner should perfectly complement the bottle of champagne that comes with your event ticket. The champagne “tells the story of the French wine tradition” and is reminiscent of summers past, according to Moët and Chandon. 

After a welcome cocktail and appetizers, guests will be treated to Rigolet’s scallop broth with kaffir leaves, green sansho and whelks. Lamb fillets with basil, crumble and gratin make up the main course, and Meewis’ gourmandize with blood oranges, zabaglione and white chocolate round out the 5-course meal.

 If the menu doesn’t entice you, the atmosphere surely will. Soft background music, romantic lighting with pink candles and ornate pink decorations will make the evening unforgettable.

Everyone is asked to dress in elegant evening wear and will receive a welcome gift upon arrival. Guests must make reservations in couples (two, four or six), so make sure you have a date to this one! There are only 50 spots per dinner, so book early to ensure your spots. Mention allergies when booking so they can be taken into account. A reservation for two costs €240.

Dinners will be held at 8 p.m. on March 20, 21 and 22 at Isabelle de Borchgrave Ateliers, Chaussée de Vleurgat 73a, B-1050, Brussels. You can register online at www.moetpinkdinners.be. For questions or concerns, email info@moetpinkdinners.be.
