Wine Tasting Classes
- January 20 (Thursday) at Spring Restaurant: The “Grand Afternoon Tasting” is a 1.5 hour class in English and will “go over the basics of how to taste wine, introduce you to six different wines from our favorite artisanal producers, and discuss wine and food pairing – with some ‘hands-on’ practice. Cost: 60€ per person. Classes in the 16th-century cave beneath the restaurant at 6 rue Bailleul (1st) will begin at 4pm. More information here.
- Every Day (but Sunday) at Ô Chateau: wine tasting classes in English ranging from French Wine Introductory (30€) to the Grand Crus Tasting (80€). Classes (except the Champagne river cruise) take place at 52 rue de l’Arbre Sec in the 1st.
- January 23 (Sunday) at Hidden Kitchen: In a break from the normal ten-course dinner format (twice-weekly affairs that are already booked through the end of March) Braden Perkins will be working with friend/guest chef Nicolas Calcott to prepare an eight-course tasting menu of refined Szechwan cuisine. The 70€ price includes an aperitif and wines paired by Juan Sanchez of La Dernière Goutte. To book, email email@example.com. The central Paris location will be revealed by email after confirmation of your reservation.
- January 22-24 (Saturday-Monday) at Paris-Villepinte Expo Center: The Paris ds Chefs event comprises three days of discussion between chefs and design folk (architects, photographers, visual artists…), all for the purpose of trying to explain marble décor of Le Dauphin. Ok, that’s a lie. They’re really gathering for 20 hour-long debates about “the visible and the invisible.” Entry for a single day, which would never be enough, is €20. Better to spend €30 and get all three days/20 hours.
