French Gastronomy comes to Brisbane as The Sofitel welcomes acclaimed Two Star Michelin Chef Edouard Loubet to showcase his culinary fare at an exclusive degustation evening at Privé 249 on Wednesday 22nd February from 6:30pm.
Guests attending the event will enjoy a carefully prepared seven-course journey of French taste by Loubet, along with wine pairing by Restaurant Manager Wendy Hawkins-Leslie. Edouard describes his style in three words ‘simplicity, smoothness and lightness.’ “I fight against heaviness”, the Chef insists.
A master of his craft, Loubet is a Two Michelin Star Chef, and boasts four hats at his restaurant Gault et Millau Domaine de Capelongue in Bonnieux France. Loubet was also awarded the coveted title of French Chef of the Year in 2011 by Gault Millau, one of the most influential restaurant guides in France.
Lobster Soup infused with Wild Vervain, Complicity of Foie Gras, Chanterelle Mushrooms Mousse and iced soup of bitter chocolate with floating islands of yarrow meringue and ice cream are just a few of the elements to appear throughout the seven course event. Tickets for the event are $249 per person, which includes expert wine pairing. Bookings for ‘Dinner with Edouard Loubet’ are essential and can be made by contacting 07 3835 3535. Tickets are strictly limited.
Following the exclusive evening with Edouard Loubet, Craig Napper and the team of Privé 249 will offer a selection of Edouard’s dishes from Thursday 23rd February to Saturday 10th March for a special 3 course dining option for $99 (excluding wine pairing). Bookings via 07 3835 3535.
