London Food Month is a major new food festival from London Evening Standard. Held annually from June 2017 and curated by creative directors Grace Dent and Tom Parker Bowles; it is a month-long celebration of food filled with over 400 events across the capital.
As part of the celebrations, Sandia is hosting two very exclusive grower Champagne masterclasses on Monday 12th June and Monday 26th June at 7pm, within the intimate surroundings of Kitchen Table. The masterclasses will be an introduction to grower Champagnes, including their unusual styles and specific regions paired with Sandia’s favourite, unconventional food pairings.
About Sandia (yep, she is pretty badass in our opinion):
A Chef trained at the internationally recognised Culinary Institute of America in New York, Sandia Chang has since held positions in respected restaurants such as Roganic, where she was the Assistant Manager and Wine Buyer; and at Marcus Wareing at the Berkeley, where she held the position of Assistant Manager. Originally from California, she has also worked at Noma, named the ‘World’s Best Restaurant’, and Per Se (which is where she met husband James Knappett). Sandia is a Sommelier at both bubbledogs and Michelin starred Kitchen Table, and prides herself on knowing all of her suppliers personally, making regular visits to the small-batch producers in Champagne to research and curate the restaurant’s wine lists. Sandia and bubbledogs were awarded ‘Wine List of the Year’ by Imbibe magazine in 2013 and a one-star award from World of Fine Wines in 2016. Sandia is a regular wine presenter on BBC1’s Saturday Kitchen, where she selects great value supermarket wines to match with the dishes cooked by top chefs live in the studio.
Tickets are £95 per person, which includes the 6 x glasses of grower Champagne samples and 6 x paired snacks.
