Soirée Under A Dome Of Elegance

By on January 5, 2018

Picture this…Veuve Cliquot Champagne, soft petal roses, lush green gardens, an elegant four-course dinner and the piece de resistance…a private dome under the night sky. Talk about a romantic setting! This is Soireé in a nutshell!

Ottawa is really stepping up its ‘gourmand’ experience as it will be introducing something that has only been offered in Europe thus far. A few years back, the English restaurant Coppa Club hosted a beautiful dinner affair in an igloo-style venue. Imagine how luxurious it must have been for guests to have had dinner in their elegantly decorated personal dome, eating and drinking some bubbles as they gazed out unto the Thames River.

Now it’s time for Ottawa to be part of that exclusive and distinguished group and take the lead on the North American edition. This is the magical recipe that Dinner4Four Co. intends to create. Soirée will be a luxurious sensory experience that Ottawa foodies will mark in their calendars as a ‘must do’ event.

Dinner4Four Co. business manager, Marcel Williams, was enthusiastic to inform me that Ottawa’s weather protected garden domes will be transformed into exquisite lush garden utopias while showcasing elegance and chic. The concept is to enjoy the view of the infamous Rideau Canal with the Parliament Hill as the backdrop even if the weather is less than favourable.

 

Now the Food

I am pleased to say that this chic dinner will be created by one of Ottawa’s top chefs, Michael Blackie from NeXt. I have had the pleasure of enjoying Chef Blackie’s creativity on many occasions. And, Chef Blackie defines the term ‘thinking outside the box’ in regards to staying relevant and imaginative all the while keeping his guests satisfied and yearning for more with delicious and ever-so-elegant plates.

  • In the country known for its 🍫, it was only fitting to go and discover a new up and coming chocolatier in Switzerland. @laflor_zurichocolatier works closely with several organic farms in Brazil, Ecuador and Venezuela to create their delicious chocolate line. 😍😍
They are truly a bean to bar business that pays homage to their culture. La Flor has incorporated Zurich's past silk trade industry into their name, as Zurich was well known for the production of a black silk fabric called Flor. 
Workshops and tasty sensory tasting experiences are offered at their location😋 #chocolate #swissechocolate #cocao #cocaobean #travelblogger #travelpics #instatravel #waunderlust #foodie #foodblogger #sweets #zurich #visitzurich #inlovewithswitzerland #nomnom #fairtrade #foodporn #chocolatenibs #instafood #sweetlife
