Champagne Evening at the Vanilla Pod

Luxury is the word for The Vanilla Pod’s Champagne Evening, a five-course meal event on 26 July with four paired Champagnes to match the equally classy ingredients. The £85 menu features the likes of lobster risotto, ballottine of foie gras, and poached squad pigeon with truffle. Creative palate cleansers like Pimm’s jelly and mint Mohita areworth a look.
