Topaz restaurant was delighted to announce that guest chef Christian Peyre would host an exclusive, six-course gourmet dinner on November 22. Chef Peyre’s career spans almost 40 years and his resume notes some of the finest kitchens in France. In 1995, Mr Peyre earned his first of three highly coveted Michelin stars, an award which has endured for more than 20 years. In 2003, Christian established his own hotel and restaurant, La Maison du Domaine de Bournissac, in a 14th century monastery in the heart of Provence. Over two days at Topaz, he conducted intensive training sessions with the kitchen team. The menu he created drew on all of the influences for which he is renowned, including scallops with citrus caviar, squid with braised artichokes, Iberico ham and pot-roasted wild partridge. Each of the courses was carefully paired with wines from across France, including Puligny-Montrachet 1ER Cru “Les Pucelles” from Joseph Drouhin, and Saint-Emilion Grand Cru from Chateau La Gaffelière.
