Asterix and The Banquet


Mixing pop-up with pop culture, The Boiler Room, at the Lion Match Office Park on Umgeni Road, is hosting a fun franco-inspired dining event. Chef-Patron Graham Nielson and Chef Charlie Lakin will be bringing René Goscinny‘s comic book characters to life in the kitchen and on the plate, serving up traditional French country cuisine in a manner that those voracious fighters and feasters, Asterix and Obelix, would heartily approve.

The 5-course banquet menu looks amazing!

Course one
Chevin stuffed prunes with Saucisson
Goats cheese stuffed prunes with roast spicy sausage

Course two
Chicken terrine with Nicoise Salad
Braised chicken terrine with Niçoise salad and vinaigrette

Course three
Bouillabaisse with fish brandade beignets and saffron aioli
Traditional Bouillabaisse with linefish fillet, brandade and saffron aioli

Course four
Pig Roast with Lyonnaise potatoes and red wine sauce
Slow roasted suckling pig with lyonnaise potatoes and red wine sauce

Course five
Crepes ala arsenic
Crepes ala arsenic with date and orange compote, caramel and ice cream
