The Wallace – La Grande Cuisine By Michelin-starred Head Chef Thierry Laborde

La Grande Cuisine at The Wallace

As the winter months draw nearer satisfy your craving for indulgence with a decadent feast dedicated la grand cuisine of the 18th Century French Bourgeois at Oliver Peyton’s fabulous restaurant, The Wallace.

Michelin-starred head chef Thierry Laborde’s Menu Bourgeois provides an insight into the art of dining perfected by such extravagant characters as Marie Antoinette and Louise XIV who used never ending banquettes of classic French dishes as a way of exercising political influence and one-upmanship up until the Revolution of 1789.

Available for £48 per person for three-course sumptuous suppers on Fridays and Saturday throughout November, this fabulous French feast includes luxurious dishes of escargot et oeuf poche à la bourguignonne as well as the warming and nourishing Poule au Pot Henry IV for two to share – based on the original recipe the infamous king said every family in France should enjoy.

    Theirry has now actually left The Wallace and set-up a new venture called The Kitchen – Parsons Green, where you get to create everyday meals with a Michelin Star chef, that you then take home to cook.
