Krug dinner

Posted by Tom Jenkins, Bordeaux Buyer
Last week, our very own Georgina Crawley and guests took over the exclusive Krug Room at the Dorchester for an evening of fine dining and plenty of slurping. Chef, Henry Brosi designed a menu around the four Krug cuvees on tasting: Grande Cuvee, Vintage 1998, Collection 1989 and Rose.

A truly gourmand evening was enjoyed by all. Hopefully the menu below will whet your appetite and give you some ideas for Champagne and food matching.
