Beckett's Champagne and Cognac Dinner

Who is Beckett’s?

Beckett’s bravely opened its doors in late March 2021 during COVID. Named after Wendy Beckett, famous Australian playwright-director, and Glebe local, and also business partner of the venture. Beckett’s is headed by co-owner and Chef Jeff Schroeter, and his wife Jules, who fell in love with him the moment she tasted his caviar covered steak tartare. The partners have had a friendship of over 15 years that came about through their children attending the same primary school.

 

The gourmand’s tour of Champagne and Cognac

The champagne and cognac dinner appropriately called “gourmand’s tour of Champagne and Cognac” is part of the Beckett’s ongoing line-up of Clubhouse events. This event is open to Clubhouse members and the general public. (more about the Clubhouse membership here: https://www.beckettsbardining.com.au/club-house)

 

In this February Clubhouse event, you’ll savour a delicious 5 course menu of French food paired with 7 champagne cuvées and 2 cognacs. Cognac and Champagne enthusiast Gavin Lennard, of Buzz Wines, will talk you through the cuvees and cognacs and chef Jeff Schroeter through the paired dishes.

Champagnes and cognacs

The champagnes chosen for the evening are from Gosset Champagne and the cognacs from Frapin. Gosset is the oldest wine house in Champagne, founded by Pierre Gosset, Mayor of Aÿ, in 1584! Gosset’s Champagnes have long been regarded as an exemplar of style when it comes to enjoying Champagne with food. Frapin is world-renowned for its cognac and is known as a producer of some of the very finest of Cognacs on the market.

 

And if you really love one of the champagnes or cognacs? Good news is that guests will be able to buy wines directly from Buzz Wines on the night.

 

The gourmand’s tour of champagne and cognac at Beckett’s is not only a delicious and informative evening. It is also a great way to meet like-minded people who also appreciate the finer things in life.
