I saw Eric Narioo, le grand fromage of Les Caves de Pyrène and also one of the movers behind restaurants/wine bars Brawn and Terroir, at the Oddbins CVA meeting. Eric arrived slightly late, heard the announcement that HMRC were not supporting the CVA and left. Fortunately Les Caves are only in for £7138.87.
As Eric left he told me briefly about a new eating place venture that they plan to open in October, which will feature only food and wine from the Loire. "We will be bringing the Loire to London from the Auvergne right down to Nantes.'
I hope to get more details from Eric soon.
