An Artisanal Pairing
Singapore, November 2014 – Indulge in an evening of hand-crafted gastronomic creations and premium French wines as Hai Tien Lo (海天楼) collaborates with renowned Barrière Frères to present an exclusive six-course wine dinner on 5 December 2014. This intimate dinner, held exclusively in the opulent Ruby Room for 22 guests, will showcase Master Chef Lai Tong Ping’s (黎东平) Glorious Decade celebratory menu paired with five stylistically created Bordeaux wines to create an evening of culinary artistry and fine wines.
Established in 1932, Barrière Frères has gained a reputation of producing dynamic and modern wines that have received the stamp of approval from wine aficionados. Created from a premium selection of grapes from the Médoc appellation, the wines are created with meticulous precision to ensure the most consistent and best quality. Vintners are also personally involved in the extensive production to ensure the superiority of the wines.
For this exclusive dinner, five premium vintages including Secret De Grand Bateau Blanc 2010 and Amiral De Beychevelle 2011 will be paired with the signature hand-crafted dishes from Hai Tien Lo. Each wine presents a unique bouquet of fruit, spice and oak flavours that complement the sophisticated dishes that Chef Lai presents for the dinner, enhancing the dining experience.
Chef Lai is honoured to collaborate with the prestigious Grands Millésimes de France which also owns Château Beychevelle and Château Beaumont, and has chosen to feature his celebratory menu A Glorious Decade – a six-course menu of handcrafted delicacies for this exclusive event. Each course presents a symphony of textures and flavours to tantalise diners’ senses that is complemented by the exotic and rounded fruit flavours from the wines. Highlights of the menu include Braised Fish Maw with Dried Scallop in Supreme Chicken Stock that is reminiscent of home cooking and the rich Braised Pork Ribs with Preserved Vegetables and Deep-fried Buns simmered for four hours to achieve a melting consistency.
To complete the memorable event, Mr Shawn Lee, Singapore’s Chief Representative for Barrière Frères will be present to share his expertise and knowledge on the wines produced and pairings for that evening. This one-night only dinner, available at $108 per guest, is now open for advance bookings. For dining reservations and enquiries, please call +65 6826 8240 or email email@example.com.
