Just got off the afternoon press conference of Sofitel as they celebrate French Month with their theme "Tout a la Français" or "Everything French" this July. They have invited French Master Chef Patrick Terrien to hold classes of Traditional French Cuisine from July 17-23 including an experience of the Chef's Table and the firing up of the French Stove on the said dates. He will also be doing wine pairing sessions, so if you're interested contact Sofitel Manila via 551-5555 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also do it via www.sofitelmanila.com.
Multicolor Sea Bream, Fennel Panna Cotta and Beet Root.
They will also feature French wines on Sunday brunch like the Cotes du Rhone on July 23 and my favorite Burgundy on July 30. So don't hesitate to grab a bottle while you're there.
F&B Manager and Sommelier Tanguy Gras will also have wine pairing classes at 4PM on July 29 so if you haven't experienced that yet, go and book one because it's all worth it. Slots run out fast and only costs Php 2,000++ so get them early. The Bienvenue en Provence Barbecue Wine dinner on the other hand happens on the 28th so if you prefer it in the evening, that is better!
Pork Fillet, Brocolli Puree, Glazed Carrots and Poivrade Sauce.
Red Snapper Fillet Basquaise with Bordelaise Sauce.
Spring Lamb Shank Navarin.
Oxtail Beef Parmentier.
Eggplants Duck Terrine, Mushroom Fooe Gras and Walnut Oil.
They've got tons of wines on display, you need not worry if you can't find a bottle because they almost have everything!
I loved all the things I ate in Spiral and the Wine Appreciation sessions I had in the past, I assure you they're some of the best people to talk to for "Everything French" because they are French with a Filipino touch. Come visit them today at Sofitel Manila and enjoy it like I did by calling 551-5555 so you could reserve a table, a private room for your friends and family. Nothing beats the Best Buffet in the Philippines.
