Loire Valley French Night – SOLD OUT

Friday 28 April | Tuggeranong

The Loire Valley, known as “the garden of France” is a fertile place where a rich farmland stretches on both sides of the beautiful Loire River.

The Loire Valley dinner takes inspiration from the Jardins du Château de Villandry, probably the most famous vegetable garden in the world. This is a brilliant recreation of the Renaissance gardens engraved in the 16th century by Jacques Androuet de Cerceau.

Set on several levels, the undeniable heart of this famous garden is the vegetable area, with nine squares bordered by standard roses that represent the monks who created the first ornamental kitchen gardens in the Middle Ages, replanted twice a year in a gourmet feast of giant pumpkins, rampant artichokes, peppers and giant cabbages.

Join us for this wonderful night with a six course dinner celebrating the Loire Valley and the surrounding region. Also featuring pianist Ross Clarke who will entertain diners.
