Yesterday we reported on how a `Luxury Cognac Deserves A Luxury Drinks Cabinet`, the magnificent Martell Trunk by Pinel & Pinel. This stunning example of a luxury drinks cabinet is on show in Harrods Brompton road window.
Last night, however, the same Harrods window was the location for an exclusive celebrity dining experience….
This was luxury Cognac Martell`s high end version of `Come Dine With Me`, hosted by French gastronomic genius Raymond Blanc.
Blanc created a French themed four course menu for his guests including Sir Terry Wogan, model and TV personality Jodie Kidd, entrepreneurial designer Sir Terence Conran and star of The Apprentice, Karren Brady.
Commenting on the evening, Raymond Blanc said:
`This dinner with Martell showcased and celebrated much of what is beautiful in France that we have come to love; its food, its conviviality, its `art de vivre`. `Art de vivre` is an untranslatable expression meaning everything that goes into making life joyous, elegant and expressive…be it the flowers and their complimentary fragrance, the porcelain that makes the food look delicious, the glasses that bring out the bouquet of a particular wine…and of course the fellowship and the celebration around the table. Tonight this dinner party has been a glorious moment to remember…and thanks to Harrods for having the imagination to honour us in staging this unique event in one of the most famous landmarks in the world.`
As you can imagine, this most unique window display caused quite a stir!
The Atelier Martell live dining experience was filmed and `fly on the wall` highlights will be shown on the Martell Facebook page.
