I’ve just received my ‘invitation’ to a Champagne Dinner at The Ritz together with Dom Pérignon on 24th November 2011. In honour of this special occasion, the hotel’s Executive Chef John Williams has created a remarkable menu, paired with some of the finest offerings from Champagne Dom Pérignon. The dinner will be held in the magnificent 18th Century surroundings of William Kent House, commencing with a Champagne and canapé reception in The Marie Antoinette Suite and followed by dinner in The William Kent Room.
Mr Richard Geoffroy, Chef de Cave at Dom Pérignon since 1996, will be on hand to advise how best to appreciate the differing styles of the wines which, combined with the culinary expertise of the Chef’s menu, promises a unique and memorable dining experience.

So… “will I be accepting the ‘invitation’?”, I hear you ask. Alas no… at £395 per person, it’s just a little out of my budget. But I’m sharing it nevertheless with the rest of you.
