To celebrate champagne brand Moët & Chandon’s 110-year partnership with Jockey Club Catering and Newmarket Racecourse, it is hosting its second five-course ‘Dining Experience’ at the racecourse this weekend (12-14 July).

With a vegetarian theme, the Moët & Chandon Dining Experience is set to wow the exclusive 90-person event, who will each be treated to a five-course lunch and perfectly paired champagnes.

Damian Adams, head chef for Jockey Club Catering at Newmarket Racecourse, explained: “When creating this year’s menu, we were inspired by seasonal produce and the abundance of fresh, local fruit and vegetables available to us.

“We’ve created a delicious pea and mint ravioli, which will be served with a tasty champagne cream, fresh summer peas, a dash of lemon and shaved parmesan.

“This will be paired this with a Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage 2008, which has a longer time in the cellars to develop more intense flavours and a fuller body and stands well with this dish.

“The vegetable dishes reveal the versatility of the champagne and make a great pairing.”
