Saturday 12th & Sunday 13th October

and Thursday 10th October as part of the Opening Gala

Amie Brûlée’s unique combination of French songs and stories has taken a left turn into the kitchen to explore the wonders of French cuisine. Structured like a dégustation dinner, Gastronomique offers ten courses of musical morsels and tasty tales of food, the French, and the cuisine of love and repulsion.

Dining begins with a strong espresso to set the audience’s palate for a menu du jour that may include the myriad qualities of egg yolks, the characteristics of a perfect baguette, the dubious origins of macarons, the emotional power of raspberries, how to indulge in pungent cheeses without being socially ostracised, the art of seduction down culinary avenues, and just how fine the line is between indulgence and intoxication. Evoking the impeccable Parisian hostess of yesteryear, Amie Brûlée serves her cabaret cuisine in vintage style with a dash of history, a cup of culinary insights, and a grind of peppery surprises.

 Oh mon dieu, c’est délicieux!
