In celebration of partnership with the EE British Academy Film Awards in 2021, S.Pellegrino has collaborated with Michelin-starred chef, Claude Bosi, on an exclusive virtual dining experience. A cooking masterclass will be streamed on Sunday 11th April as part of the of the EE BAFTAs weekend on S.Pellegrino’s online food platform Fine Dining Lovers and promises to be an evening of first-class cuisine and entertainment. A bundle, containing all the required ingredients, will be available through Waitrose, and cooking-elite, Claude will be on hand to guide you every step of the way.
Although the EE BAFTAs will be hosted as a virtual event this year, that doesn’t mean the night will be any less spectacular. As the official water partner, S.Pellegrino is adding its unique sparkle to the evening, ensuring viewers can still celebrate in style at home, with a dish fit for the stars.
Those taking part in the ‘Taste of EE BAFTAs’ dining experience can look forward to re-creating a stunning dish, specially devised by Claude Bosi to celebrate the best of British ingredients, all delivered directly to your door by Waitrose. On the evening itself, viewers can join Claude from 5-6pm for the virtual masterclass in how to prepare and cook the dish, picking up exclusive tips and tricks from the culinary master.
Set the scene for a night of glitz and glamour and join Claude on screen to prepare for creating the main event: a succulent Cod Grenobloise with sustainably sourced Icelandic Cod Loin, or for vegetarians, with roasted cauliflower steaks, both with fresh herbs, browned butter and salty capers. These showstopping dishes provide the perfect start to the night, with delicate flavours and succulent textures designed to elevate the senses, bringing restaurant quality cuisine to your dining table.
All information for the Taste of EE BAFTAs dining experience will be published on FineDiningLovers.com on Tuesday 23rd March including an interview with Claude offering tips ahead of the event on how to craft the perfect celebration at home, the ingredients list (with a dedicated link to purchase all ingredients in one click from Waitrose) and a step-by-step recipe for those who wish to recreate the recipe at a later date.
