Mas Sant Jordi

Mas Sant Jordi – the food and wine partnership!

For guests who are seeking relaxing evenings where no-one need drive or if you want to celebrate a special occasion such as a birthday or anniversary, we offer an informal and personal dining option. Meals can be for an entire family / group or later in the evening for the adults alone.

This is normally provided by Alistair who is the chef for our Maison d'hôte guests and the groups that stay on a full board basis. His love of cooking over many years whilst in 'corporate life' included private dinners and special celebration events. He also attended all 3 levels of the cookery school at Le Manoir aux Quat' Saisons (Raymond Blanc, Oxford, UK) from 1998 to 2001. More recently, he has been at the Waterside Inn cookery school with 3-star Michelin chef Alain Roux and the Anantara Thai cookery school.

Janine is the resident qualified wine connoisseur! As a WSET Diploma graduate she is also a Certified Educator for the Wine and Spirits Education Trust (WSET).

Janine traces her passion for wine back to her first holidays in France as a young teenager. Throughout an esteemed career in public and corporate life she has taken every opportunity to develop her wine knowledge alongside achieving qualifications with travel across the winelands of Europe, California, Argentina, Chile, South Africa and more recently the emerging vineyards of South East Asia. She loves to share her knowledge and experiences with others through tutored wine tastings, vineyard visits and, together with husband Alistair, the unique 'food and wine experience'.

All meals include quality wine and the wines are sourced from independent châteaux in the South West and Languedoc-Roussillon regions, many unavailable outside of France.

We will consult you about personal preferences and styles and select appropriate wines to match your food choices. Each wine is accompanied by a short explanation and tasting notes to introduce you to the regions.

For those who are interested, formal tutored tasting sessions and visits to châteaux can also be arranged.

Special options such as vegetarian or other dietary requirements eg. gluten free (coeliac), are easily catered for all food is freshly prepared using fresh seasonal produce wherever possible.

Special requests - if you have any favourite dishes / foods please ask Alistair to design a menu for you.
