Gourmet Dinner and Wine Tasting at L'Assiette
Following previous successful wine tasting dinners, L’Assiette is hosting a gastronomic ‘Le Tour de France’ on Thursday 26 July.
The evening will explore the different wines and culinary delights that have made the French regions famous and provide an excellent opportunity to learn more about French wine and food.
It all starts with an aperitif before being seated for an informative yet relaxed tasting experience of six wines with simple, classic food matches. Expect the senses to be challenged in what will be a memorable evening in a little part of France, right here in Auckland at L’Assiette.
The dinner is $100 per person and includes a five-course set menu, aperitif and canapés on arrival plus tasting of six French wines.
