Unusual dinner at Domaine du Paternel - sold out

7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

Dinner prepared by Dimitri Droisneau ** - La Villa Madie - Cassis

An original place that turns away from its "usual use" to open up to the public for a dinner. It is an unusual invitation to a "offbeat" place, where inspiration and creativity are essential, which offers the opportunity to discover a "nugget" of our agricultural heritage. A single watchword for chefs and cooks in the kitchen: highlight local products. An unusual dinner menu: something offbeat, surprising, beautiful, good, and above all friendly! A beautiful summer evening to enjoy without moderation.

The evening starts at 7:30 pm with an informal visit of the estate's cellar and a glass of Cassis wine. It continues at 8:30 pm, around a large table in the heart of the vineyards, to enjoy one of the most gourmet moments, prepared by the talented chef Dimitri Droisneau, from the best local products, in a friendly atmosphere...

Dinner in the open air - 120 people maxi

Price: 45 € per person or the meal, on reservation + 5 € entry

Lyrical and gastronomic show "l'Opéra a votre table".

Oustau Calendal from 8:30 pm

A gourmet journey, between opera arias, delicate dishes and white wines from Cassis. To start off well, enjoy a gourmet box prepared by the starred chef Ludovic Turac from Marseille.

On the menu :

  •     Brandade of candied rock fish, vegetable shavings with citrus zest and gazpacho of tomatoes from Provence.
  •     Pistou of sea bream, melting potato with saffron.
  •     Organic lemon pie, served with a creamy tarragon yogurt.

All these are served in biodegradable, environmentally friendly boxes accompanied by blackcurrant wine.

 Then, it's time for the show:

In an imaginary restaurant, two couples arrive for dinner. The show begins....

From cocktail to dessert, follow the burlesque tribulations of a poet butler assisted by his loyal, mischievous and twirling waitress and our guest singers who let us see and hear an unexpected musical dinner, orchestrated like a ballet, all in elegance and humour.

"At the table, at the table", you will take a little "Bayonne ham" with "spinach" and a glass of alcohol, but beware, not too much at the risk of shouting out "Ah ! What dinner I just made" or "see".

" To the table, to the table", you will take a little "Bayonne ham" with "spinach" and a glass of alcohol, but beware, not too much at the risk of shouting "Ah ! What dinner I just had" or "My clothes cracked in the back"...

Combining culinary and musical art, this show, performed by 4 singers accompanied by the piano, orchestrated by director and actor Jean Manifacier, is a real firework display of sounds and flavours.
