Cork people are going to be happy with news of the following event, featuring chef Brendan Cashman (ex-Augustines). There was much sorrow when Brendan decided to close Augustine's, but now fans can share his cooking once again.
On Thursday, November 15th, the kitchen and wine workshop at L'Atitude 51 will be handed over to chef Brendan Cashman for an exclusive, French-themed pop-up style event that coincides nicely with Beaujolais Nouveau Day. On this special night, Brendan will be cooking a hearty 5 course French-style bistro feast and L'Atitude 51 will select wines to match each course (with Beaujolais playing a leading role).
Beaujolais Nouveau can only be released at the strike of midnight on the third Thursday in November, which is November 15th in 2012. It's a time-honoured tradition to celebrate the harvest and the release of this youthful and fun vin de primeur, fermented for just a few weeks before being released.
The cost for the evening is €50 per person, which includes a welcome drink, the 5 course meal, tasting wines and a coffee to round off the meal. The evening kicks off at 8pm. Spaces are limited, so get in touch with 'Atitude 51 via email email@example.com or phone (021) 239 0219.A
