If you love jazz, Champagne and fine food, then September just got better. Krug Champagne counts renowned jazz musician Jacky Terrasson as a fan – and for his latest world tour, the New York-based pianist is hosting a series of musical Champagne dinners, one in each of the cities he visits, and each in collaboration with a different chef.
On 23 September, the tour reaches London – and chef Andrew Fairlie, executive head chef at his eponymous two-Michelin-starred restaurant at Scotland’s Gleneagles hotel, is flying into the capital to create a four-course dinner paired with Krug Champagnes and vintages, with music specifically selected by Terrasson to accompany each Champagne (and even a few pieces composed by the man himself).
The dinner will take place in the musical surroundings of Metropolis Studios - in the same room where stars including Michael Jackson, Lady GaGa and Amy Winehouse have recorded hits. During the meal, Terrasson will play his chosen musical works, including Herbie Hancock’s ‘Butterfly’ to accompany Krug’s 2000 vintage. One of the musical interludes will be recorded and cut on exclusive vinyl pressings which will be gifted to all guests after the event as a memento.
Tickets are already on sale and cost £500 per person, including all food and Champagne. For more information and to book tickets, visit Krug’s website.
