French water company Badoit are hosting a free picnic with Michelin starred chef Thierry Marx on Thurs 13th in Soho Square. It's free - but you need to book by emailing BadoitExpress@HavasWW.com mentioning party size, and your name and phone number. Plus there will be places for people who walk up on the day. It follows a similar event last year on Eurostar - see video above.
"Who said there is no such thing as a free lunch? BADOIT, the sparkling mineral water, is hosting the BADOIT EXPRESS – the world’s first picnic restaurant - serving gourmet food created by Michelin star chef Thierry Marx, free of charge.
The sparkling experience will open at 12.30pm in Soho Square on Thursday 13th June. There are just 100 picnic places available and hungry diners can express their interest by emailing details of their party to BadoitExpress@HavasWW.com.There will also be a small number of places available on the day and diners should get to Soho Square early to avoid disappointment.
Central to the picnic will be the menu created by Thierry Marx, owner of the Sur Mesure par Thierry Marx restaurant in Paris, which holds two Michelin stars. The look and feel of the picnic has been designed by Fred Sirieix, general manager of the Michelin-starred Galvin at Windows restaurant and co-presenter of the BBC’s Michel Roux’s Service.
Thierry’s menu adds a twist of gastronomic excellence to the classic British packed lunch. Marx said: “BADOIT is a naturally sparkling, effortlessly convivial accompaniment to fine food, and it is fantastic they have decided to create this once in a lifetime event. Last year I worked with BADOIT to turn a Parisian commuter train into a free fine dining restaurant– now it’s London’s turn. There is a growing recognition in the restaurant industry that we need to champion and celebrate simple, everyday food, and that it can be just as impressive as the most delicate truffle soufflé. My menu, which will remain a mystery until the event itself, will combine the freshest, best quality ingredients to create a truly memorable lunch break for our guests.”"
