You will be treated to a trio of some of the nation’s most-loved, traditional dishes, as your taste buds take a flavour-filled tour around the French regions. Each of the dishes originates in a different region of France, meaning you will be able to experience the full breadth of flavours and textures that the county’s best dishes have to offer. All dishes will be freshly prepared by the talented team at No 60, who will be staying true to traditional French methods.

About the film

Amélie is an innocent and naive girl in Paris with her own sense of justice. She decides to help those around her and, along the way, discovers love.

A painfully shy waitress working at a tiny Paris cafe, Amelie makes a surprising discovery and sees her life drastically changed for the better. From then on, Amelie dedicates herself to helping others find happiness in the most delightfully unexpected ways. But will she have the courage to do for herself what she has done for others?
