Try your five a day the Normandy way, it’s Père Magloire National Calvados Week running from Sunday 18 October and Saturday 24 October.
Taking place in bars, supermarkets and independent off licenses across London, Manchester, Edinburgh and Liverpool including 155 Bar & Kitchen, The Hawksmoor, Waitrose and Gerry’s of Soho.
It’s the time of year when Normandy’s finest green apples are harvested then transformed into the golden nectar that is Calvados. The complex, warming apple brandy is as fresh and pure as the beguiling French countryside from which it is born.
My new favorite autumn tipple is not as well known in the UK as it should be. Take the opportunity this week to sample it for yourselves with special cocktails menus, Père Magloire Calvados range tasting, food pairing and specially prepared menus cooking with Calvados taking place all over the city.
Make mine a large avec de le glace, and show me the cheese board!
