The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs is a beautiful setting for a truly French weekend with the ultimate prestige champagne house, Dom Perignon, and a much-loved and revered French chef, Philippe Mouchel!
“Salute to France” guests will immerse themselves in the very best of French cooking, champagne and style with two days of sublime eating, drinking, learning and absorbing from some of France’s best exports.
With elegant dishes, designed to perfectly match your next glass of Champagne, the partnership of Mouchel and Dom Perignon will delight your senses beyond expectation.
Friday night is for enjoying fine food and fine wine at your leisure, however not before indulging in the art of the French aperitif. A relaxed affair, guests will enjoy a gourmet a la carte dinner followed by a traditional digestif.
On Saturday morning, Philippe will share his belief on how to best master the basics of French cuisine – it’s all in the sauces and jus! This enlightening French cooking demonstration will see guests elevating their favourite dishes to new heights with some Gallic secrets from a well-trained master.
That evening, Dom Perignon’s charming and knowledgeable ambassador will host a very memorable dinner featuring four exquisite courses prepared by Philippe Mouchel, each matched to a special vintage of “Dom”, including the P2 1998 Dom Perignon and more.
This perfect pairing is unashamedly decadent and set to leave guests wistfully dreaming of the vineyards of France.
