Don’t miss the Laurent-Perrier masterclasses at Taste of London, 2015

Jun 15, 15 Don’t miss the Laurent-Perrier masterclasses at Taste of London, 2015

Laurent-Perrier has been chosen again to be the official champagne of The Taste of London in 2015. They will be hosting champagne masterclasses throughout the event (June 17th – 21st) as well as having a special bar set up where you’ll be able to sit back and relax with a glass of Laurent-Perrier in hand.

The masterclasses this year will again be hosted by David Hesketh, Master of Wine and MD of Laurent-Perrier UK. David will be matching their cuvées with canapés prepared by street food connoisseurs Bob’s Lobster. I’ve been to various masterclasses with David and he is a font of knowledge about not only Laurent-Perrier but also about champagne in general.  Every time I attend one, I learn something new about champagne. These events are also great opportunity to enjoy a unique champagne experience. David will lead you in learning how to choose the optimum champagne; whether it’s for a special occasion or just because you fancy some bubbles in the middle of the week (I know I often do!).

Following a glass of Laurent-Perrier Brut on arrival, guests will be guided through the key characteristics of a range of Laurent-Perrier’s distinct champagnes, while enjoying freshly prepared rock oysters fried in cajun breadcrumbs and yuzo, crispy wonton tacos filled with sashimi grade yellow fin tuna and the famed Bob’s Lobster roll; toasted brioche, stuffed with native lobster tail dressed with paprika and fresh oregano.

Daniel Brennan, Head of Marketing for Laurent-Perrier UK: “The Laurent-Perrier Champagne Moments Masterclass will demonstrate how different sizes and styles of champagne can enhance any occasion, our Brut will be served by jeroboam and our Grand Siècle by magnum. The pairing of these champagnes with carefully chosen dishes from Bob’s Lobster brings a fun approach to food matching and is quite simply, the best food pairing masterclass we have ever had at Taste!”

Laurent-Perrier is taking the opportunity at Taste to introduce their summer partnership with award-winning gourmet popcorn pioneers, Joe & Seph’s, they have crafted a delicious Strawberry & Elderflower Popcorn. Capturing the fruity notes of Laurent-Perrier Cuvée Rosé, the popcorn has been handcrafted, infusing fresh strawberry and fragrant elderflower with smooth caramel. You’ll be able to enjoy the popcorn with a glass of L-P rosé in hand during Taste.

LPPopcornI love popcorn and champagne together and this sounds like an interesting combo, can’t wait to try it! And of course the masterclass should be a great champagne tasting experience as well.
