On Friday, May 9, the Stadium of Light will be hosting an evening dedicated to the world-famous bubbly, pairing a selection of Champagnes with the finest food from around the world.
The five course feast, provided by SAFC’s catering and hospitality arm 1879 Events Management, will begin with tempura chicken strips, rolled in sesame seeds with a lime and ginger dressing and a Chinese duck spring roll, served with spring onion and cucumber julienne and a sweet plum sauce.
For the main course guests will be served marinated lamb loin on a bed of puy lentils drizzled with a mint hollandaise sauce and served with a side of mash, roast vegetables and a rich port wine sauce.
Dessert will be presented in two stages, with an apple beignet and vanilla ice cream, followed by a selection of cheese and biscuits, served with celery, grapes and fruit chutney.
Each dish will be accompanied by a different Champagne, specifically chosen to complement the unique flavours and fresh, locally-sourced ingredients.
Tickets for the Champagne Gourmet Evening at the Stadium of Light are priced at £54.50 per person, including canapés on arrival.
A 10 per cent discount is also available for SAFC season card holders.
