5 Of The Best Food and Wine Events To Book In Autumn

Looking to plan something special? Ciara McQuillan has sourced the best food and wine events to book this autumn …

The Shelbourne Champagne Dinner

The Shelbourne Hotel is hosting an exclusive dinner on Wednesday October 11 in The Saddle Room to showcase select champagnes from Laurent Perrier. The evening will begin with a champagne reception in The Adam & Deirdre Suite, where The Shelbourne’s sommelier, Nisea Doddy, will be opening bottles of champagne using the sabrage method, before a five-course dinner in The Saddle Room with champagne pairings. Dishes such as scallop ceviche with fresh almonds, kohlrabi and Laurent Perrier snow and poached black sole with sweetcorn, Laurent Perrier cream and pearl caviar have placed this elegant food event on the top of my wish list this autumn. www.theshelbourne.com
