A Champagne and Fine Food Evening held at 315 this June was heralded a sparkling success with all places selling out almost as soon as they went on sale.

Within a day of sending out an email flagging up the event, 315 had completely sold out of tickets and chef Jason Nielson believes they could have sold places for five or six such evenings based on the interest.

As champagne is not strong enough to marry with food, the tasting was held prior to dinner. A representative of the Champagne Gardet vineyard attended to talk about the production of champagne and 315 was delighted to welcome her for one of only three appointments she had in the UK prior to the forthcoming busy harvesting period.

Founded 1895, Champagne Gardet is based in the Epernay region of France near Reims, producing high-quality champagne often in limited runs. The visitor led the tasting of four different champagnes: a brut white, a vintage white, a pink champagne and a vintage pink champagne.

Guests then enjoyed a two-course meal specially created by Jason for the occasion, comprising poached lemon sole with a white wine and chive sauce, potatoes and leeks. Dessert was mille-feuille with strawberries and cream followed by coffee.

Among the guests were some familiar faces who have already become regular diners at 315 since it opened. The general consensus was that guests had enjoyed the evening tremendously and also learned something new about champagne tasting and production.

The next event at 315 will be a Fine Food and Wine Evening on 5 July, with wine from the Chalk Hill wine company in Australia, which makes small-batch, hand-crafted wines of distinction. Head chef Jason has created a special menu for the event and different wines will be partnered with each course, with viticultural expert Jock Harvey on hand. The price is £32.50 a head (call 01484 602613 to book).
