DiscoverVin support Mater Chicks in Pink

All courses on the menu were pink

DiscoverVin were happy to support the "Mater Chicks in Pink" with a fundraising dinner at C'est Bon in Wooloongabba, Brisbane on April 15. The "Mater Chicks in Pink" support women diagnosed with Breast Cancer.  Over $2000 was raised on the night.

Celine and the team at C'est Bon put their heart into the event, gathering support from their suppliers, decorating the rooms, working for free and wearing pink aprons in the kitchen. All of the staff worked for free and the suppliers donated all food and wine used, so that as much money as possible could be raised for the cause!

Homemade Gravelax with Honey Dill Mustard Creme.
All of the food had a pink theme.  The Domaine de la Croix Rosé was the perfect wine for the dinner.  The salmon pink colour of the wine was ideal and looked wonderful with the Pink Fish.  The colour and the soft fruit flavours were lovely with the Homemade Gravalax served with a honey dill mustard creme.  

The wine's dry and savoury aspects on the palate meant the Irresistible Rosé also worked well with the Free Range Chick in Pink.  The soft and supple wine was lovely with the oven roasted free range chicken supreme coated in beetroot crust on spinach and exotic mushroom risotto beurre pink.

Vivid pink dragonfruit & lychee sorbet was spectaular finale.

The rosé was also a good accompaniment to the pink dessert - The Dragon, the Crunch and the Ballet Dancer.  This was a vivid pink dragonfruit and lychee sorbet in a brandy basket.  Superbe!!
