Londres – London… more !

mardi, 2 novembre, 2010

I had a few days very nice in London sharing my time with Thibault and Emanuel ! As a result of our work, I am delighted to confirm that Pirata « Espécial » and/or « S’Alqueria » entered a few new and good places, among them: Hibiscus** – where I met the first french Lady Master of Wine… Isabelle Legeron (Wine Lab)- and Tierra Brindisa with Angel in Soho.

A few new places for my friends leaving in London, to discover whenever in the area and when shopping in Soho !

We visited some current customers too: Marc-Andrea Levy Head-Sommelier at Angela Hartnett’s restaurant: Murano where S’Alqueria is served by the glass…

The Greenhouse Restaurant with Alexandre, UMU with Kumiko, etc….

What a pity not to have enough time to enjoy food and wine….. Hope that next time I will be able to taste Umu’s cooking as my wines and « Pirata » especially is doing quite well with japanese cooking as in Haiku in Cadaqués !

Luckily I went to have a fabulous diner at « Pied à Terre« : A french restaurant, run by an Australian Chef – Shane Osborn-  in London, with English and French sommeliers..just imagine ! Thanks again to James, Mathieu and Manu….. Just try it, too !!



Top Sommeliers

nguedoc Languedoc – Roussillon wines, launched their own Sommelier of the Year competition in London.

 » First : 26-year-old Romain Henry of Gordon Ramsay’s Maze who captivated the judges with his passion, professionalism and the magic he wove on stage. It was, however, a very close call between him and Marc-Andrea Levy of Murano, another Ramsay establishment, who also showed enormous competence and charm. Both young men clearly have exciting potential and Mr Ramsay should be proud of them. Rebecca Skinner of Green & Blue Wines came in third with her superior technical knowledge. »  Read more about it on Jancis Robinson’s blog: Gordon’s boys triumph

« I don’t normally write much about sommeliers (like drug dealers, they do what they do, and you let them because you are weak, but it’s not done to shout about it), but Marc-Andrea Levy is one of the very best around. Giles Coren – Times On Line »
