Dear Members – I trust you’re all well.
SAVE THE DATE – BASTILLE DINNER – TUESDAY 14 JULY
As I write this piece, I’m very much heartened by what the CEO had to say in his 25 May email to members about the Club’s limited re-opening. In case you missed it, the Club will be re-opening as from Tuesday 9 June for lunch and dinner in the Harbour Room. Cellar sales, take away and take-home menu options will also be available.
This is great news and allows us to think about resuming our Corks ‘n’ Forks events timetable for the rest of the year.
With COVID19 restrictions gradually easing, we are hopeful we’ll be able to hold our Bastille Dinner on 14 July without impinging on the Club’s dinner service. So folks please mark 14 July in your diaries, keep your fingers crossed, and watch for future announcements. There’ll also be an update in the Club’s July newsletter.
Also by then we should have a better idea when we can resume our tasting/tour programme. You’ll recall we had to postpone our ‘An Old World/Australian Comparison’ scheduled for 2 April.
Just to whet your appetites, our annual Bastille Dinner is always a great night. It’s the perfect opportunity to glam it up a bit and celebrate all things French – food, wine, fashion, style etc. There’s a great selection of French wines from many of Frances’s wine regions chosen and presented by Ian Cook from Five Way Cellars matched to a bespoke menu crafted by Chef and his team.
Your Corks ‘n’ Forks committee looks forward to seeing you all in the not too distant future.
