Ten Years In Montreuil – Fish, Fish, Glorious Fish!
Aux Pêcheurs d'Etaples, Quai de la Canche, 62630, Etaples-sur-Mer
Date: Friday 26th June
Aperitif: 7.00pm to 7.30pm
Dinner: 7.30pm to c.10.30pm
The port of Etaples in northern France is well known for the quality of the fish landed daily by the local fishermen and delivered straight into the kitchens of the town's restaurants.
Situated on the banks of the River Canche, renowned fish restaurant Aux Pêcheurs d'Etaples is owned by a fishermen's co-operative. It naturally follows that only the freshest fish is used to create dishes in which the quality of the ingredients shines through.
For this event head chef Gérard Auvray will create a four-course meal which will be accompanied by a selection of fine wines from around the world as we show that all styles of wine, whether red, white or rosé, can find a harmonious match with seafood.
