Maze launches wine flight menu


Maze has just introduced a new ‘Wine Flights’ menu, consisting of three delicious courses and wines to accompany them.  The aim is that guests will now be able to try a few exceptional wines at lunch without needing to order a whole bottle.

The sommelier pairs the flavours and textures in each tasting-sized dish with a specially chosen selection of wine for you to savour – Okay so ‘Wine Flight’ may sound like something you would be served on Easy Jet, but the menu is far from it, and looks incredible.

Dishes include rump of lamb with fennel, samphire and lemon and thyme jus; veal osso bucco, rocket pesto, white onion risotto; and rice pudding with Mirabelle plum jam, mascarpone ice cream and caramelised pecans.

Wines to match include Chateau Bauduc Blanc 2009, Semillon/Sauvignon Blanc from Bordeaux, exclusive to Gordon Ramsay restaurants and Les Grimaudes 2007 by Mark Kredenweiss, a 100% biodynamic blend from the Rhône Valley.

3 courses £45.00 (£25.00 without wine flight)

4 courses £56.00 (£36.00 without wine flight)

The wine flight menu is available for lunch every day and for dinner: Sunday to Thursday 6pm – 7pm.

Pétrus launches fab new wine master class


Pétrus has just launched a new monthly wine master class.

The four hour class, given by Head Sommelier Naoko Tomita, will teach guests about different grape varieties, how to match wines with different flavour combinations, wine etiquette and basic tasting techniques.

The class costs £100 per guest, which includes the sommelier guidance, the Perfect Match menu, wine, water, coffee and a souvenir wine description.

The Perfect Match menu, consists of five courses, accompanied by wines chosen specifically to complement the textures and flavour combinations in each of the dishes. The kind of dishes you can expect to find on the menu are: Lobster and salmon cannelloni with Champagne and chive sauce, served with 2009 Vin de Pays d’Oc, Fleur Blanche, Mas des Agrunelles, Languedoc; and hazelnut parfait with a chocolate centre and praline crust, served with 2008 Maury Mas Mudigliza, St Paul de Fenouillet, Roussillon.

Sounds pretty yummy to me!

The next class will take place on Monday 21st March at 10:30am. To make a reservation, call 020 7592 1609 or email quoting ‘Food and wine discovery’.
