Pullman Auckland Celebrates the French Revolution

Pullman Auckland Says “Oui Oui” And Celebrates the French Revolution with French Food Month


Join the Bastille Day celebrations throughout July at Pullman Auckland

25 June 2014: In homage to its French origins, Pullman Auckland is celebrating one of the largest annual festivals on the French calendar – Bastille Day – with a whole month of French inspired activity throughout July.

Held on the 14th of July, Bastille Day commemorates the storming of the Bastille prison in 1789 and the subsequent rise of the French revolution.

Pullman Auckland is hosting a ‘French Food Month’ to celebrate the food and flair of France, and has joined forces with French car maker, Peugeot to give away three French-inspired prizes valued at over $2,500 each.

Four lucky winners will enjoy a two night stay at the 5-star hotel Pullman Auckland including daily breakfast, a couple’s treatment at Spa at Pullman and a French inspired dinner for two at Tapestry Dining. Plus, winners will get to cruise around Auckland in a brand new Peugeot for the weekend.

Pullman Auckland’s new Chef, Charlie Pihera, has created a 5-course French-inspired feast for the restaurant Tapestry Dining during July. This special set menu with matching French wines features chicken liver parfait, sole meuniere, pieds de cochon qui croustillent, a cheese course and for dessert, a clafoutis aux cerises. (Full menu details are below). To book a table, phone (09) 358 8013.

For a more relaxed dining experience and winter warming lunch, Pullman’s Omni Bar will be serving rustic French cuisine with a light bar menu including special French wines. Dishes include a bowl of vegetarian cassoulet served with crusty baguette and glass of Jaqueson Mercurey Burgundy Pinot Noir. In the evenings, a chicken liver parfait with brioche and red onion jam will be on offer with a sweet aperitif wine to match.

Madames and Monsieurs are invited to treat themselves with a tailor-made hot herbal lavender full body massage at Spa at the Pullman. With a slathering of lavender aromatic oil, this luxurious 75 minute treatment starts with an aromatic foot soak and with the use of lavender wheat bags and oils, it is the perfect way to drift away into the fields of France. The lavender spa treatment is available during July and priced at $150. For spa bookings, phone (09) 355 1242 or emailpullmanspa@pullmanauckland.co.nz

Francophiles can make the most of the French festivities and stay the night with Pullman Auckland’s Winter Weekend Getaway package. Enjoy a night’s accommodation in a Superior King/Twin room, complimentary breakfast, unlimited wi-fi access and valet car parking, from only $199.

Pullman’s Winter Weekend package is available across Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights for all stays until 24 July 2014. To book, contact Pullman reservations on +64 9 358 8023 and quote ‘Winter Getaway’ or visithttp://www.pullmanauckland.co.nz/online/special_offers.csn
