Two Thrilling Wine Dinners at Le Cafe Anglais Up-Coming

We are very pleased to announce – at rather short notice, I know – the return of Paolo de Marchi to Le Cafe Anglais. Maker of sublime Chianti (Gordon Brown won’t be coming then), the legendary Cepparello and now forging ahead with wines from his family estate in Piedmont, Paolo is an old friend whose wines are very dear to our hearts. After last year’s brilliant dinner, it would have been criminal not to get him back. Expect an evening of wonderful wine, some gutsy autumnal food and an opportunity to meet one of the wine world’s most modest but engaging personalities. Priced at £70.00 (plus service), this is a date not to be missed. Please check your diaries for Tuesday October 13th and book without delay.



Our next dinner promises to be a rare treat. Giles MacDonogh is a man of many talents. A great expert on German and Austrian food and wine, he has written extensively on the subject (especially in that great paper of record, The Financial Times) and was chairman of the German and Austrian panels of this year’s Decanter Wine Awards Giles may be better known as a historian, specialising in twentieth century German history. His most recent book, 1938: Hitler’s Gamble was extremely well reviewed on its publication in June. Giles has a third string to his bow, being a painter of striking architectural images(go to  to learn more). Ostensibly an evening of Austrian food and wine (think Tafelsptitz, Kracher and Brundlmayer), this should be a highly stimulating and enjoyable dinner on Monday October 19th. Priced at £70.00 plus service.
