For the first time Orient-Express The Dinner, one of Londons most exclusive and luxurious dining experiences, will receive some extra sparkle this November. Orient-Express is working with Laurent-Perrier, their house champagne supplier, to create a unique culinary journey onboard the British Pullman with a touch of fizz.

Seated aboard the luxuriously restored 1930s carriages, amongst gleaming crystal and intricate marquetry, guests will be taken on a journey of culinary delights complemented by a careful selection of exquisite Laurent-Perrier champagnes.

The menu has been crafted by Executive Chef de Cuisine, Matthew Smith, along with Laurent-Perriers Master of Wine, David Hesketh, to ensure that the food and champagnes work in perfect harmony.

Guests can look forward to dishes such as Seared Fillet of Halibut, Morelle Sauce & Crispy Leeks to start, accompanied by a chilled glass of Laurent-Perrier Ultra Brut, a light champagne with crystal-clear freshness that complements the delicate flavours of the fish.

A more robust and rounded champagne Grand Sicle by Laurent-Perrier is matched to suit the refined and rich flavours of the main course of Seared Kentish Guinea Fowl, Roasted Pheasant Breast, Confit of Rabbit & Potato Dauphinoise served with Tarragon Scented Jus.

A divine cheese course of Colston Bassett Smoked Stilton and a Kentish Quince Jelly accompanied by a Truffled Welsh Rarebit will also be complemented by this fresh finished champagne.

Dessert lovers will be able to enjoy an Assiette of Desserts including delights such as Warm Chocolate and Prune Brownie and Poached Damson and Cardamom Cream Shortbread Stack, accompanied by a crisp, fruity Laurent-Perrier Cuve Ros, to suit the richness of the indulgent dessert.

To ensure that guests get the most enjoyment and appreciation of the fine champagnes being served, Laurent-Perriers Master of Wine, David Hesketh, will be travelling to educate and guide guests through the art of champagne tasting.

The Dinner in Association with Laurent-Perrier will take place on 11 November 2010, departing at 19:30 from London Victoria and costs 350 per person.

The Dinner in Association with Laurent-Perrier will also be held on 12 November 2011.
