‘Le Drunch’ is the latest foodie trend emerging from the culinary capital of Paris. The institution of Brunch has now found itself a new rival as more Parisians are choosing to eat later at the weekend, at a time that sits between lunch and dinner. Commonly known as “Le Drunch”, this new dining occasion is being enjoyed across the city, both in bistros and Parisian homes.
This Spring, premium French brand Maille will introduce Le Drunch to London.
Championed by two Michelin-starred Chef Hélène Darroze, Maille will be serving an exclusive Le Drunch menu at the Maille Boutique in Spitalfields Market from 15th-24th March.
Created exclusively for Maille, Darroze’s Le Drunch menu has been designed for those wanting to share delicious French-inspired cuisine that is easy to re-create at home.
Described by Time Out Paris as ‘a lunch-dinner hybrid,’ Le Drunch is the perfect way to spend a leisurely afternoon enjoying delicious dishes with family and friends. From today, food lovers across London can book one of a handful of exclusive sittings where they can experience Le Drunch, courtesy of Maille.
Hélène Darroze, ambassador for Maille’s Le Drunch said “As a chef and mother working in Paris, I have noticed a trend towards people enjoying a Le Drunch style of dining. Dining is an important part of Parisian culture, and meals have typically been held at traditional times, so enjoying a late afternoon Le Drunch with family and friends over the weekend is a new, increasingly popular occasion.”
Food lovers can now book a Le Drunch session by visiting www.maille.co.uk. Sittings are available between 3pm-6pm for a maximum of four people. All six dishes created by Hélène Darroze will be available to sample.
Alongside serving Le Drunch, visitors to the Maille Boutique will have the opportunity to sample and buy Maille’s extensive range of mustards, condiments and sauces. Taking inspiration from the established boutiques in Paris and Dijon, visitors will be able to take home exclusive flavours including a fresh Black Truffle mustard, served straight from the Maille mustard pump.
