An array of stars came to dine at Harrods with Raymond Blanc.

Hosted in Harrods shop window, the dining event was themed on French craftsmanship and caused quite a stir as passing shoppers were able to view this unique scene from the street.

The dinner was in association with luxury cognac brand Martell and also an opportunity for the famous chef  to promote French gastronomy within the UK

Images of the dinner sent via social media networks made this extraordinary dinner party an inclusive event enabling this private dinner to become one that was experienced by many.

Blanc said:  “This dinner with Martell showcased and celebrated much of what is beautiful in France that we have come to love; its food, its conviviality, its ‘art de vivre’. ‘Art de vivre’ is an untranslatable expression meaning everything that goes into making life joyous, elegant and expressive…be it the flowers and their complimentary fragrance, the porcelain that makes the food look delicious, the glasses that bring out the bouquet of a particular wine…and of course the fellowship and the celebration around the table. Tonight this dinner party has been a glorious moment to remember…and thanks to Harrods for having the imagination to honour us in staging this unique event in one of the most famous landmarks in the world.”
