Cafe del Mar Sydney Moet & Chandon Champagne Dinner

Cafe del mar Sydney Moet & Chandon

It was a night of splendour, good cheer, fine food, breathtaking views and new friends.

Last night I attended the Cafe del Mar Moet & Chandon Champagne dinner and oh what a night of elegance it was. As soon as I walked into Cafe del Mar I knew it was going to be spectacular. Cafe del Mar is one of my favourite Sydney venues, in fact my friend's treated me to lunch here for my birthday last year - it was a long lunch!

On arrival guests were treated to Moet & Chandon Ice Imperial with Canapes on the Terrace.

Wild mushroom and Roquefort, Chevre tartlets

Watermelon, Jamon Serrano, whipped feta

Personally I found this blend a little too sweet, however my new friend, Dana (pic below) who I met when I arrived raved about this one and told me that she stocks up when it's on special.

Speaking of new friends, I met these glamorous ladies from Melbourne and Adelaide.

After the terrace drinks it was time to move inside for Moet & Chandon Imperial served with:

Pambula Lake Sydney Rock Oysters,

strawberry granita,

Chardonny mignonette, apple, salmon roe.

A great pairing for the Imperial.

I must say my friend's Glen & Leo received lots of compliments about their Jack London Jackets. Such a great look 'bling with denim' – perfect style for this occasion.

During the night we were given a little history on the story of Moet and Chandon which I found fascinating. The presentation included some videos – this one below is how the brand featured celebrities in its advertising.

It was now time to move on to the Moet & Chandon Rose Imperial. Matched with:

Spanner crab and lobster ravioli, clam and saffron consomme

Rich, creamy and flavoursome. The Moet & Chandon Rose Imperial surprised me; if I did a blind tasting I would never have picked this for a rose because the flavour is so delicate.

For the next course we indulged in Moet & Chandon Grand Vintage 2008 and this was my winner. Oh yes, more please!

Paired with:

Seared Aylesbury-Pekin Duck breast, baby beetroot, mandarin gel

The flavours of the beetroot and mandarin were perfect with the duck. I find duck very rich so I could not eat all of this generous sized portion.

Then there was the finale! Moet & Chandon Nectar Imperial. Paired with:

Moet & Chandon Imperial Champagne foam, poached strawberry, salted-pistachio crumble, gold leaf.

Well there you have it! I didn't even know that Moet & Chandon had a 'dessert' champagne. A fabulous wine to finish off with this delightful dessert.
