Champagne lovers delight at the Stadium of Light

Sunderland AFC's Stadium of Light will be delighting champagne lovers from across the North East with a special event held at the venue on Friday, 9th May.

The venue will be hosting an evening dedicated to the world-famous bubbly, pairing a selection of champagnes with the finest food from around the world. 


SAFC’s catering and hospitality arm, 1879 Events Management, will be provding a five-course feast beginning with tempura chicken strips, rolled in sesame seeds with a lime and ginger dressing and a Chinese duck spring roll, served with spring onion and cucumber julienne and a sweet plum sauce. 

For the main course guests will be served marinated lamb loin on a bed of puy lentils drizzled with a mint hollandaise sauce and served with a side of mash, roast vegetables and a rich port wine sauce. 

Dessert will be presented in two stages, with an apple beignet and vanilla ice cream, followed by a selection of cheese and biscuits, served with celery, grapes and fruit chutney. 

Each dish will be accompanied by a different Champagne, specifically chosen to complement the unique flavours and fresh, locally-sourced ingredients.
