Very few restaurants serve proper British food as we all know it should be cooked. Boisdale, though, in the heart of the City (202 Bishopsgate, London EC2M 4NR), is the leader of the pack. Following the huge success of the Rhône lunch in June, Boisdale has come up with another gastronomic treat.
This exclusive event includes the tasting of six fine Douro wines and ports throughout a 4-course lunch, tutored and supplied by Sophia Bergqvist, owner of Quinta de la Rosa Wines.
