Bubbles and harp paired for Graham Beck dinner at Le Canard Restaurant

Le Canard Restaurant                05/30/2012 15:43:30               

An exclusive “dégustation” dinner matched to bubbles created by Pieter Feirrera of Graham Beck Estate is to be hosted by Sandton’s Le Canard.
Cellar Master and creator of exceptional wines, Pieter “Bubbles” Ferreira, will host an evening of bubbles!
A six course “dégustation” (or tasting) menu will be created and paired exclusively to the Methode Cap Classiques created by Graham Beck Estate. Although the actual menu will only be released on the day, dishes will include the more traditional “pairing” items including crayfish, truffle, girolles and berries. In keeping with epicurean fancies, some unusual “contrasting” items will be enjoyed too.
“The quality and huge range of Graham Beck bubbles offer the most wonderful palette of taste colours and differences,” says Freda Appelbaum, Le Canard’s Chef Patron. “To create a menu with Pieter’s creations is challenging, always sophisticated and, above all, fun. The cheese course, for example, with five differing tastes, will spell out BLISS, the demi-sec that will be served.”
A specially prepared “tasting board” listing the varietals for the evening is to be presented to each guest. This is with the compliments of Graham Beck Winery.
Other wines for the dinner will include the new Graham Beck Zero 2005. “Its uber dry and, quite simply, superb! Many years of passion and, wow! avant garde and a benchmark in bubbles!” enthuses Chet Diepraam of Le Canard. He gets very excited when mentioning The Cuvee Clive 2005. “To present a prestige cuvee of this quality, with its creator, is a pleasure. It is not easily available, and could quite easily knock some fancy French bubbles off the table.”
Pieter “Bubbles” Ferreira joined the Graham Beck winery in 1990, and has never failed to create art in a bottle. He has collected many awards and loyal fans over the years, and his bubbles have partnered Nelson Mandela’s inauguration and Barack Obama’s presidential campaign. Chet adds, “Ja ja ja, Pieter is also quite the raconteur. Expect a great party!”
Added to the evening delights is harpist and musician extraordinaire Amarillie Ackermann, who will be performing light classical and jazz standards throughout the evening, with some music choices themed and arranged to the event.
“Harp and bubbles are synonymous with celestial pleasures, so Amarillie and her magic will help create the perfect ambience.” Chet goes on to say that there will also be a short, yet formal, concert at the dinner. “One must showcase fantastic talent whenever one has the opportunity.”
Space is strictly limited. This exclusive event happens on Thursday 21 June at 7pm. Tickets for the dinner are an all-inclusive R680 per person, and can be booked with Le Canard on 011 884 4597 or lecanard@icon.co.za
