Gordo's Come Dine With Me re-run

He's recreating his CDWM menu at The Mark Addy and you're all invited

Published on January 17th 2011.


Gordo's Come Dine With Me re-run

It's Gordo's 54th birthday on 19 January, and to mark the big occasion, he's putting on a wine-matched dinner at The Mark Addy. It'll be based on the menu he prepared for his infamous appearance on Come Dine With Me – and his fellow contestants will be there too to give it a second go. Click here for the original story.

Gordo's Come Dine With Me re-run: he's recreating his menu and you're all invited – the other contestants are going too

If you're looking for an antidote to the January blues, this is surely it. First off, there'll be the food (which really should have won on the telly). This time, Gordo will have award-winning chef Robert Owen-Brown on hand to avert any mishaps in the kitchen. And he'll be staying sober(ish) until its plated-up.

The menu will run like this:

Starter: Herby lobster salad with sauce Americaine vinaigrette

Main: French trimmed rack of lamb with Gordo's dauphinoise potatoes and greens

Dessert: Apple tarte with crème fraiche

Secondly, three excellent wines will be matched with each course. Wine supremo Charlie Wolmersley will be in charge on this front. He's one of Gordo's oldest pals and is well known amongst professional circles as a supplier of fine vintages.

Sometimes Charlie even imagines he knows more about wine than Gordo. Gordo laughs at him for this. Expect some spirited banter on the night, along with some great food and wines.

Also expect to see the other CDWM contestants, Jon, Pascha and Jilly, tucking in. Despite the warmongering by the show's producers, the four of them get along relatively well.

We've got the price in for the lobsters and lamb now, so the ticket cost is finalised. The menu plus three glasses of wine will cost £55.

It's happening next Wednesday, 19 January, at 7pm for 730pm.
