A lucky group of food and wine enthusiasts joined pioneering New Zealand wine brand, Brancott Estate at the Sugar Club for a night of intrigue and sensory indulgence as they took part in ‘A Curious Feast for the Senses’.

The event was hosted by food duo Cully & Sully who guided guests on the culinary adventure as top Irish restaurants Pichet, Campagne, Tankardstown House and Locks Brasserie created a range of gastronomic delights that tickled the palate and delighted the senses in front of a live audience.

From the dressing of the room, to the food on the plate to the matching visual and aural effects, the entire evening challenged guests’ perceptions of food. Each night they enjoyed a three course sampling menu prepared by one of the above restaurants that explored food combinations that shouldn’t have worked together but did. Guests also tried a selection of wines from the premium Brancott Estate range which were carefully chosen to match the food.
