Chef Banzo will be treating diners to a memorable feast of distinction, created with exquisite depths of flavour and the finest of ingredients. Starting with a selection of appetizers including traditional pissaladiere with black olives from Nyons, the feast’s highlights include: roasted milk-fed lamb rack with thyme vegetable tian; rock mullet stuffed ‘façon bécasse’ with seafood and fresh herbs; and smoked duck breast with artichoke ravioli. The meal ends, as it begins, with a concoction that delights the soul, this time a deliciously light cream of Amarretto.


Accompanying wines include a Domaine Weinbach Pinot Blanc Réserve 2014, Chateau Ormes de Pez – Saint Estephe 2010 and Domaine Christian Moreau Chablis 2014.  Diners will enjoy increasingly older wines throughout, with the meal culminating in a glass of the fine Château Guiraud, Sauternes – Graves 2008, whose sweetness and acidity are a treat to even the most discerning of diners.
