Chef Anand George with Laurian Veaudour

Chef Anand George has entered into collaboration with patissier Laurian Veaudour, to create a one night only Bordeaux wine and dine menu on October 10th.

The chef patron of Cocorico Patisserie in Whitchurch Road Cardiff, Laurian Veaudour is an old friend of Chef George, and has created a plated trio of desserts to be served on the night.

The dish comprises a  Passion fruit cheesecake with lime & basil curd; a milk chocolate & ginger mousse with banana & pineapple compote and a warm vanilla sponge with a salted caramel centre and green Tuile.

Chef Anand George said: “We have enjoyed Laurian’s fine creations for many years, and regularly present his special occasion cakes to people celebrating birthdays and anniversaries at Purple Poppadom.

For our event on October 10th, we are serving a four course dinner with each course accompanied by a specially selected Bordeaux Wine.  I felt that Laurian’s desserts, presented in the Nouvelle Cuisine style, would be perfect for the menu. I am very happy to be working with Laurian for this event.”

Laurian Veaudour said: “It is great that we can work together, especially as I love Chef Anand’s food.  I have known Anand for nearly three years and it is nice that we can now combine fine patisserie with his very special cuisine.  I am very much looking forward to our Bordeaux night.”

The Purple Poppadom Bordeaux wine and dine event is being mounted in association wtih Fine Wines Direct and C.I.V.B. (Le Conseil Interprofessionnel du Vin de Bordeaux).  The special menu costs £49.95 per person including a glass of wine with each course.

    • Review via Tripadvisor by DenisinWales on 26th September 2018 1st despite the very long sign board covering 2 store fronts, the entrance is a tiny door at the far left.

Everything was beautifully cooked and full of flavour, with our particular favourites being the onion pakoras, laccha parathas and the planner makhni – the
