Putting on the Ritz. Enjoy decadent French style in New Zealand

Looking for the perfect excuse to get away for a couple of days during the southern hemisphere winter? 

How about a French weekend at one of the world's leading luxury lodges? 

The acclaimed Lodge at Kauri Cliffs is the venue for a decadent French weekend from August 4-6 with wines from prestigious Champagne house Dom Perignon and food from much-loved French chef Philippe Mouchel. 

“Salute to France” guests will immerse themselves in the best of French cooking, Champagne and style over two days of sublime eating, drinking, learning and absorbing from some of France’s best exports at Kauri Cliffs.

Normandy-born Mouchel trained under one of the greatest of French masters, Paul Bocuse, the only chef in France to have been awarded three Michelin stars consecutively for over 40 years. Mouchel worked at the first Paul Bocuse Restaurant in Japan, and later moved to Melbourne to open the Paul Bocuse restaurant there. 

Today, he runs his own French restaurant/brasserie in Melbourne, simply known as Philippe. 

On the opening, guests will fine food and fine wine in a relaxed ambience with aperitifs and an a la carte dinner followed by a traditional digestif.

A cooking demonstration on Saturday morning will highlight sauces while that evening a Dom Perignon ambassador will host a dinner featuring four courses prepared by Mouchel, each matched to a special vintage of “Dom”. 

The event tariff is NZ$1,900+ 15% GST per person, based on double occupancy and includes: two nights’ luxury suite accommodation at The Lodge at Kauri Cliff, pre-dinner drinks and canap├ęs, daily full breakfast and complimentary non-alcoholic minibar; traditional aperitif and digestif on Friday night, gourmet dinner both nights, paired with Dom Perignon champagnes on Saturday night and a choice of either unlimited green fees or a 50-minute spa treatment per person.
