Seven-course Royal Wedding-themed meal with wines

Etranger NEW 2007

To celebrate the Royal Wedding, L’Etranger will host an exclusive seven-course meal for one group of diners, held either in the private dining room at Les Vins de L’Etranger, or in the comfort of their own home.

The seven courses will be paired with wines, each representing a particular date of importance in the Royal Family’s history. Diners will also taste a special ‘Royal Wedding Cuvée’ – a 1961 Dom Pérignon in magnum, disgorged in 1981 to celebrate the marriage of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer.

The dinner is open to groups of up to six people, and costs £15,000.

The menu is as follows:
