Veuve Clicquot Links Up with Paola Paronetto for Colourful Collaboration
Veuve Clicquot Cellar Master Didier Mariotti recently hosted a dinner at the Art Gallery of New South Wales to preview the new 2015 vintage of La Grande Dame and unveil the brand’s collaboration with Italian artist Paola Paronetto.
The colourful celebration was held in the stunning Meers Hall in the gallery’s newly built North Wing, with a Garden Gastronomy theme brought to life by guest chef Clayton Wells, who interpreted the evening’s themes with a vegetable-first, artisan dishes inspired by the structure and precision of La Grande Dame 2015 and by Paola Paronetto’s artworks.
True to the tradition of the House, his Garden Gastronomy was expressed through the simplicity of ingredients, with fruit and vegetables taking centre stage, and the verticality and gigantism of Paola Paronetto’s artistic works echoed through his culinary creations.
