Best of Yapp @ Le Gavroche Mixed Case Offer
Classic combinations from our archives.
Six historic food and wine matches from Yapp lunches at Le Gavroche.
Alas, Le Gavroche closed its doors at 43 Upper Brook Street on Saturday 13th January; albeit with one final hedonistic week of private parties after that for friends, family, catering students and suppliers. The impact of the Roux family and this institution on the culinary landscape of the UK is impossible to overstate. Given what we've heard about Michel Roux's busy diary in 2024, however, we suspect this may be more of an 'au revoir' than an 'adieu' and we already have plans to continue our legendary 'Gavroche' lunches at Emily Roux and Diego Ferrari's acclaimed Notting Hill restaurant Caractère (watch this space).
In the meantime, we've delved into our archives to research some of the finest food and wine pairings enjoyed by our and their customers over the four decades that we co-hosted lunches. The Rhône, Jura, Languedoc, Provence, Corsica and Béarn are all represented in a stellar line-up. Ambitious cooks are welcome to recreate the partnerships below, while other may simply wish to raise a glass to a very special place and people.
