La Chapelle Hosts a Best of Malbec Dinner: Monday 8 May

It will come as no surprise to the astute reader that SEEN is very partial to a nice glass of Malbec. Imagine our delight when we heard of a rather fabulous Malbec dinner, to take place at 7pm tonight at La Chapelle.

The menu sounds divine: Cumbrian beef tartare, truffle emulsion, shaved parmesan & baby artichokes, accompanied by a 2014 Malbec “Vista Flores”; Lasagne of Dorset crab, shellfish bisque, with a 2014 Chardonnay “Historic Rows”; Breast of Goosnargh duck à l’orange, Tokyo turnip, caramelised daikon & orange purée washed down with a 2011 Nicolas Catena Zapata.

A selection of cheese will go delightfully no doubt with a 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon “Historic Rows”, whilst Warm Valrhona chocolate fondant, confit kumquats & vanilla ice-cream will complement a 2011 Malbec “Nicasia”. Coffee & petit fours end this sumptuous spread. The menu is £120.00 per person, VAT & service charge are included, but get in quick, this is happening tonight! Bon appétit.

The Castle at the Space: SEEN Reviews

SEEN was not that familiar with the work of Howard Barker prior to seeing ‘The Castle’ but feels she must rectify that situation. A powerful piece on the nature of masculinity, war, gender roles and the essential unreliability of religious faith, ‘The Castle’ benefits from a powerhouse cast and a stripped-back set, making the most of the Space’s environment.
