French Countryside Chef’s table at Domaine des Etangs on May 27
London – May 15, 2023 – Crurated, the London-based membership wine community designed to connect connoisseurs with world-class producers, today announced that the company has partnered with Satopia Travel to provide limited release wine for a Chef’s Table Hosted Experience in the French Countryside at Domaine des Etangs. Alfonso de Gaetano, Crurated’s CEO & Founder, has chosen Thienpont Family wines for the May 27 exclusive dinner from Award Winning Chef Dominique Crenn.
From May 24 to May 28 2023, Chef Crenn, of San Francisco’s noted 3-Michelin-star restaurant Atelier Crenn, returns to her native France, to cook up a fantastical five-day fairytale in the gorgeous Cognac countryside. The event is a behind the scenes look at how food is grown, cured, and prepared in France.
“We wanted to create an experience that really speaks to everything that I love about France, food, and art.” said Chef Crenn. “Each theme focuses on creativity and there is also a bit of mystery. I feel like each experience speaks to a different part of my life. I spent time in the garden with my mother and grandmother; took long walks in the forest with my father and brother; and I was born in Versailles. Each is so special to me and that will definitely be reflected in my dishes and the wines at this exclusive event.”
“Francois Thienpont comes from a family heritage that has been flourishing since 1842.” said Alfonso. “Having the chance to partner on this event and pair wines from the Thienpont Family portfolio with food from Chef Crenn is exciting and hopefully the first of many events with the team from Satopia Travel.”
