Valentine's Day Supper: Les Jardins de Colette


Valentine's Day Supper: Les Jardins de Colette


Date: Thursday 14 February 2019
Time: Aperitif 7.00pm ; Supper 7.30-10.00pm
Venue: La Fromagerie MARYLEBONE

This Valentines we’ve been inspired by the tales of Colette ‘La Dame du Palais-Royal’ Sidonie Gabrielle Colette (1873-1954), recognised as one of France’s most notable literary figures as much as she was known for her scandalous love life & music hall adventures. Whilst no angel she was daring literary talent & became one of France’s most treasured & accomplished authors. Colette was admired for her progressive ways & in her time was nothing short of radical.
A bon viveur with an appetite for life & of course for good food.
Les Jardins de Colette was created in 2007 in Correze; nearby Castel Novel where she once lived. Divided into six gardens, in the shape of a butterfly, each one illustrating a French region where she once lived & loved. The gardens represent an important period in Colette’s fascinating life & offering a glimpse into different regions of France.

As with all our Valentines events - they are relaxed & convivial evenings all about delicious food, wine & great company with guests seated on communal tables…
