Culinary Events

Culinary events held at Estevan Lodge are increasingly popular. Each event has a different theme to provide you with a unique tasting experience on every occasion. Chef Pierre-Olivier Ferry and his team develop special a menu, adapted to the theme and incorporating plants that are in season in the gardens and in the greenhouses.
