Nobel Prize and Château Le Cagnard

The magnificent setting of Château Le Cagnard.Château Le Cagnard is honouring the historic Nobel Prize with an exclusive dinner on Thursday 1st December. It is the second year the hotel and restaurant have hosted such an event and it falls on the day before the city of Nice and its many partners - including the Haut-de-Cagnes restaurant - celebrate the annual awards with a day of conference and seminars focusing on the 2016 Nobel Prize winners.

For 85€ (excluding drinks), diners will enjoy: lobster with winter vegetables; guinea fowl with ceps, cranberries and pearl onions; and a chocolate mousse with mandarins. 

The evening will take place in the presence of many doctors, professors and public figures of the region - a night of true academia. The guest of honour is co-founder of Médecins Sans Frontières Bernard Kouchner, who was awarded a Nobel Prize in 1999.  

Château Le Cagnard has close ties with the Nobel Prize and its Swedish founder Alfred Nobel as it is owned by Swedish entrepreneur and philanthropist Frida Ivarsson. To solidify the theme of the evening, Château Le Cagnard gourmet event will also commemorate the traditional Swedish celebration of Santa Lucia.
