Guests who opt for the wine pairing will enjoy the Amuse Bouche with a glass of Delamotte Blanc de Blanc 2014.
The meal starts with Foie Gras appetiser, a local twist on a classic French starter, foie gras terrine. Hudson Valley Foie-Gras from cage-free ducks have been chosen so that guests enjoy the buttery treat guilt-free. Chinese hawthorn fruit in different variations complements the foie gras to invoke childhood memories.
I enjoyed the Congee course. Fermented red rice lees, eight treasure grains, is served with Bentong Ginger Chicken and aged ‘Shaoxing’ wine.
For the entree, the Lamb features Irish Slaney Valley Lamb sourced in partnership with Alternative Selection, Singapore’s first wholesale distributor of alternative gourmet, allergen and preservative-free specialty foods. Spiced curried beetroot purée, lamb jus and a refreshing carrot slow complete this hearty dish. The wine pairing for this dish is the Domaine Jean-Louis Chave Saint Joseph 2018.
The Hokkaido Scallops are aburied and served with assam laksa, pineapple ginger salsa, and pink peppercorns. For those who opt for wine-pairing, this dish is served with the Kistler Vineyard Lers Noisetiers 2020.
End the meal with two delightful desserts. The assam gelée with guava granita and chilled assam soup in Assam cleans the palate while the Pecan pie is served with an Osmanthus ice-cream and Goji Berry coulis.
