Dickensian Absinthe?

Who spotted Mr Venus [from Our Mutual Friend – played by Omid Djalili] sitting with a glass of absinthe in the finale of the BBC’s Dickensian series?

We were pleased to see what looks like a well prepared measure of traditional absinthe, in a classic absinthe glass, on Mr Venus' table as is joined by Inspector Bucket [from Bleak House – played by Stephen Rea] in The Three Cripples [the public house from Oliver Twist]. This is a historically sound appearance of La Fée Verte - the mid 19th century saw absinthe grow in popularity around the world.  In the UK, absinthe was enjoyed at famous establishments like The Savoy and Café Royal Hotel (where Oscar Wilde enjoyed a glass or two) and would have no-doubt made its way into a few public houses.

Set in the universe of Charles Dicken’s many famous literary works, the BBC series Dickensian has impressed on many levels, not least in the standard of writing and strength of cast.

Albert Adrià Residency at Hotel Café Royal

La Fée is honoured to feature in Albert Adrià’s highly anticipated residency at London’s famous Hotel Café Royal.
Starting on the 12th of February, running until Saturday the 9th of April, 50 days of Albert Adria brings the innovative and contemporary cuisine for which Spain is famous to the iconic hotel.

Albert and his brother Ferran are best known for their 23 years at elBulli, the pioneering Spanish restaurant which held 3 Michelin stars from 1997 until it closed in 2011.  Ferran considers his brother to be one of the finest chefs in the world, and Albert was named ‘the best pastry chef in the world’ in this year’s San Pellegrino World’s 50 Best Restaurants.  He has opened five outstanding restaurants across Spain since 2011.


La Fée is used to form ice cubes in Albert Adrià's Fable Cocktail

The 50 days… journey begins in the rather-fitting Oscar Wilde Bar with a selection of bespoke cocktails and signature snacks, featuring La Fée Absinthe in new and innovative ways, and ends in the Domino Restaurant with a ten course tasting menu.  Tickets sold out instantly, with 10,000 more people requesting reservations than were available!  Fortunately anyone can still enjoy Albert’s exclusively created cocktails at the Oscar Wilde Bar throughout the duration of the residency.  Will 2016 see another gastronomic event that can rival this?  We'll have to wait and see, but this is undoubtedly a fitting tribute to the hotel's 150th year.
