Roaring Twenties Revelry: Sip, Savour and Swing

January 27 at 5:00 pm to 7:30 pm EST

Join us as we explore the evolution of food trends that have defined the past 100 years, starting in the 1920s to today!

The 1920s, often referred to as the Roaring Twenties, was a decade marked by economic prosperity, cultural dynamism, and social change.

Food and drink trends during this time were influenced by factors such as the end of World War I, the rise of the Jazz Age, and the advent of Prohibition.

Dress in your best 1920s fashion for a 5 à 7 style evening where we explore the tastes and sounds of this bygone era.

Champagne between the wars: The majority of vines in the region of Champagne had been significantly ruined during the Champagne riots of 1911 and during WW1. At the cost of a great deal of work organized by the Association Viticole Champenoise, the areas of grafted vines were entirely rebuilt between 1920 and 1930 with exceptional Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. Sommelier Lauren Hayes van de Weghe will be pouring Champagne Collet Brut as we explore the sparkling history of the region between the wars.

Impact on Drinks: The Prohibition (1920-1933) led to the ban on the sale and production of alcoholic beverages. Despite this, illegal bars known as speakeasies flourished, and cocktails became more popular as people sought creative ways to mask the taste of homemade or low-quality alcohol. Mixologist Daniel Hacker will be stirring and shaking classic cocktails from the era.

Finger Foods were created: Cocktail parties and social gatherings became fashionable, leading to the rise of finger foods and appetizers like canapés and bite-sized snacks. We are welcoming our culinary friends Chef Kyle Proulx and Carley Schelck of The Urban Element for a selection of refined and elegant finger foods inspired by this decade.

Reserve your spot now for an unforgettable evening of refinement, culinary excellence, and effervescent joy. Don’t miss your chance to be a part of this extraordinary celebration!
