I don't want to mislead you into thinking that I just had a light lunch of bubbly and cheese.
The Champagne + Fromage in question is a shop/ bistro that proves that there's more to Covent Garden than Opera.
This Gallic outpost is the creation of French Bubbles a UK importer of Grower Champagnes.
At Champagne + Fromage, 25 grower Champagnes including Champagne Waris Larmandier 'Cuvée Sensation' can be enjoyed in the bistro with cheese and charcuterie, bread of course, as well as from time to time frogs legs and escargots (snails).
The thirtysomething cheese selection comes from Une Normande a Londres.
After sampling Champagne + Fromage offerings, you can of course take your favorites home or purchase them as a gift for a lover of 'bonne chair' and bubbly.
Champagne + Fromage is located at 22 Wellington St WC2 in Covent Garden, London.
Opening hours: Tuesday to Saturday - 11am -11pm / Sunday from 11am – 8pm
Too bad my European trek does not include London.
Champagne Waris Larmandier is as passionate about creating arts and crafts as they are about Champagne.
