Join Raymond Blanc for an exclusive
Quintessentially FT Weekend in Paris
10-12 May 2013
Explore the hidden riches of Paris and join Raymond Blanc,
Quintessentially and FT Weekend for an exclusive gastronomic and
cultural adventure in the City of Light
The weekend will run as follows:
Start the weekend in style as you’re collected in a chauffeur driven car
and taken to the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel in London for a Champagne
reception with host,
Chef Raymond Blanc, before boarding your first class carriage on Eurostar.
Following your arrival at the five star Le Royal Monceau Hotel and Spa
in Paris, the entertainment will begin with a ‘Fireside Chat’ hosted by
FT journalists featuring guests from the world of art and culture.
You’ll then finish the evening by enjoying a decadent dinner, especially
created for such an occasion.
Join Raymond Blanc on an exclusive Parisian market tour, as he shares
his passion for the finest fresh produce that Paris has to offer. Then
relax over a delicious brunch, served at a beautiful location and with
special guests to entertain you.
A bespoke afternoon allows you to indulge your own interests, as you
choose from private art tours, wine tastings, private shopping trips or
the chance to unwind in the tranquility of your hotel’s world class spa.
Later you’ll attend the Gala Dinner, where you’ll be treated to the rare
luxury of a menu prepared and cooked by Raymond Blanc. FT Weekend
journalists will interview special guests, followed by a musical
performance that will complete an unforgettable evening.
Sunday morning: what better time to relax and enjoy springtime in Paris?
You’ll even have a range of hosted activities to choose from. After
leaving your hotel, you’ll be transported to the river Seine where
you’ll board a private charter boat, enjoying a superb lunch on board as
you cruise past Paris’s most beautiful and iconic sights.
Chauffeur-driven cars will be waiting at the waterside to whisk you to
your private carriage on the Eurostar. You’ll return in style and
comfort to London, still dazzled by the City of Light.
