The Art of Bond Dinner Series: Diamonds are Forever 

Inspired by the novels of Ian Fleming and the Bond films, delve into the secrets of the world’s most renowned special agent with an evening of Bond-themed glamour, intrigue and indulgence.Welcome to “Diamonds are Forever”, in celebration of the release of the 25th James Bond film, due to air in October. This extra-special experience will begin with a Champagne and canapé reception in The Milestone's beautiful Conservatory, hosted by the inimitable Linda Hugo of Beyond Curated, and renowned James Bond and food critic Richard Bagnold.

Join Alessandro Borruso, Deputy Director at Sotheby’s, and Sophie Harley, who worked with the Bond team on the “Casino Royale” set, for a glass of 2005 Vintage Taittinger Blanc de Blancs in our Windsor Suite, as they discuss the intrigue and mystery of the world of rare gems and diamonds.

Sophie will share her fascinating stories of the inspiration and design process for creating the famous Algerian Love Knot necklace which features prominently in the film “Casino Royale”, as worn by Vesper Lynd, played by Eva Green. Sophie was present on set and met with Eva for fittings, and will recount the magic of these experiences. There will be an array of stunning Sophie Harley jewels present on the night to view and enjoy. Deputy Director at Sotheby's Diamonds Europe, Alessandro is a former geologist and certified specialist in gemmology, diamond-grading and jewellery valuation with over 20 years’ experience in fine jewellery and diamonds.

Our guests will then dine exactly like Bond, enjoying the very meals experienced by the man himself in the spectacular setting of Cheneston's. Journey through a one-of-a-kind Bond menu of delicious courses, inspired by the original Ian Fleming novels and expertly recrafted by Richard and our Executive Chef Daniel Putz. Each plate, taken from a different Fleming novel, has its own tale to tell.
