The GOODS from Le Parisien
Vancouver, BC | Le Parisien presents Fondue Night on October 29 for the second edition of La Table; a series of French communal dinners designed to evoke the tradition of sharing, conversation and a sense of community. Guests are encouraged to put on their favourite sweater, hurry down to Le Parisien for fondue après work (or ski), and gather with family, friends and strangers. After all, nothing brings people together like dipping soft pillowy pieces of bread into a bubbling hot communal caquelon of melted cheese.
Chef Tom Lee will be sourcing fine cheeses from Les Amis du Fromage to be paired with Domaine de Grachies. This unique white wine from France’s south western region Cotes de Gascogne, is a blend of Colombard, Ugni Blanc, Gros Manseng and Sauvignon Blanc. Dinner is priced at $65 inclusive of tax, gratuity and wine pairing. Details and menu after the jump…
(an eventbrite service charge will be added at the time of purchase).
