There’s nothing I like more than a summer picnic, especially when it involves good food, wine and funky beats. The ultimate French-inspired picnic, So Frenchy so Chic is returning to Melbourne in the New Year which will see the grounds of Werribee Mansion transform into a whimsical French country side full of wine barrels and flowers. Enjoy a piece of Provence under the Australian sun surrounded by friends, music, food and wine and joie de vivre! So pack a picnic rug, some sunscreen and your best dancing shoes and we’ll see you there!
What French picnic is complete without yummy food and wine? Grab a picnic rug and enjoy the little village square at So Frenchy So Chic which will be full of artisanal French providers. For seafood lovers, there’s freshly shucked oysters from Oysters Unplugged, French delicacies from Hotel Gitan, Le Pelican and the epic Le Parigot burger from Le Petit Bistro. And don’t forget the classics like crepes, macarons and raclette. I’m getting hungry just thinking about it!
Or embrace the ultimate picnic cuisine with one of their delicious picnic hampers (available to pre-order), stuffed full of French goodies like crusty baguettes, summer salads, strawberries, Ile de France cheeses and chocolate ganache tarts.
Wash down the delicious French cuisine with the finest from Laurent Perrier alongside Paul Louis Blanc de Blancs at the champagne bar. There’s also rose from Provence, glasses of Lillet, reds and whites from Bordeaux and delicious cocktails served from the SFSC vintage caravan.
The line up at So Frenchy So Chic keeps getting better every year. Four main acts have been announced so far with more to come soon. Lou Dillon is making her highly anticipated debit in 2016, joining 70’s inspired duo Brigitte, Balkan-electro Soviet Suprem and folk and blues singer Hindi Zahra.
