Held in conjunction with Christian Lacroix the costumier Part of Life & Living - Food & Culture Series

The April – June 2009 series of workshops will start with A French Affair – a series of four specially designed workshops held in conjunction with the Christian Lacroix the costumier.

Champagne first gained world recognition when it was association with French royalty. Today, it continues to be an exclusive drink associated with celebrations and special occasions. Learn about the production and varieties of champagne, the foods that accompany champagne and the finer points of champagne appreciation. Enjoy a glass of Blanc de Blanc or Thiénot and compare it to some Mumm. See how it differs from an Italian prosecco or an Australian sparkling.

Presenter's Profile
David Coleman is a passionate and creative presenter who loves nothing better than educating people about the joys of wine and food pairing. This love of fine wines and the difficulty in getting quality, well-priced wine led to the creation of Rubicon Reserve Wines in 2003. Driven to create a company with integrity in product selection, David has handpicked smaller boutique wineries from all around the world that represent true varietals and terroir excellence for Rubicon's exclusive endorsement.
