This week, we are celebrating ALL THINGS RED in Domaine Des Jeanne, so we wanted to give you a little taste of what we have been up to recently…

  • The Davies family have been in mourning because Spurs (their soccer team) lost to Liverpool in the Champions League Final in Madrid on the 1st June 2019. However, we are continuing to honour All Things Red because our Son-in-Law, Simon, and Grandson, Rory Wade, were delighted that their team (Liverpool) were victorious:

  • We recently had the honour of attending the Roth Bar & Grill at Durslade Farm to celebrate the Birthday of Ursula Hauser. An exhibition has been curated in her honour celebrating many of the works of female artists. The JJ Esprit Rosé flowed all night, where it paired beautifully with each course… especially so with the pink of the rhubarb cheesecake and the magnificent strawberry meringue birthday cake:

  • David Mach created the life sized creature inspired by the design of the wrappers and it’s now on display at the Royal Academy Summer Show in London which we attended in delight. Many of us who have ever eaten a Tunnock’s tea cake will have carefully smoothed out and folded the foil to create our own little art sculpture before chucking it in the bin, thinking nothing more of it. But one Scottish artist has shown what you can do with not one but a few hundred wrappers. Fife-born David Mach has created a tiger using the foil packaging and it’s been unveiled at a prestigious art exhibition featuring work by the likes of Greyson Perry. Read more

  • After all those sweet treats, we decided to try to counteract things by eating healthy. In doing so, we discovered this amazing Jamie Oliver Recipe for Avocado on Rye Toast with Ricotta which makes a simple, yet delicious accompaniment our to JJ Esprit Rosé. Seeing as our blog was about All Things Red, we tweaked the recipe, added some Strawberries and loved it:
