Fine Dining Delivery In Singapore: Experience Restaurant Zén and Krug Champagne Via A Zoom Call
Despite the government lifting circuit breaker measures on June 1, we still won’t be able to enjoy the simple pleasures of having a good meal with family and friends at our favourite restaurants until at least the second of three reopening phases begins.
But that won’t stop executive chef and Krug Ambassade Tristin Farmer from bringing the fine dining experience to your home. Since the partial lockdown measures kicked off in April, he and his team have quickly adapted to the challenging times by offering their à la carte dishes and five-course menus for takeaway and delivery.
This continues with Farmer’s latest initiative—a collaboration dinner with the House of Krug taking place on May 26 (7pm). For that special night, the chef has crafted a four-course menu of his signature hits, grounded on Nordic, French and Japanese sensibilities. Of course, these were thoughtully curated to pair beautifully with the Krug Grande Cuvée #167, an exquisite blend of 191 wines from 13 vintages.
A dinner to remember
The champagne’s creamy and mellow character, with an umami depth, complements the ocean flavours of the juniper-smoked sea trout and sake-brined trout roe, piqued with the citrus notes of the yuzu kosho and fermented celeriac.
The same goes when the champagne is paired with the dry-aged Challandaise guinea fowl, beautified with truffle stuffed morels, Vin Jaune aux beurre, black pepper, gooseberry and ramson dressing, as well as the 44-month Comte cheese drizzled with lavender honey.
Last but not least is the dessert of sea buckthorn curd tart with Norwegian brown cheese fudge and meringue charred with binchotan; its delightful sweet-citrusy taste is balanced by the slight acidity of the champagne.
To complete the fine dining experience as if you were at Restaurant Zén, the dinner will be hosted by Farmer and beverage manager Aaron Jacobson, together with sixth-generation member of the founding family, Olivier Krug, over a Zoom call. Farmer will personally take you through each course and share his inspirations in creating the dishes, while Jacobson will give insights on the wine pairing and how to best enjoy the Krug Grande Cuvée #167. Krug will also be on hand to share the champagne house's colourful history and their reason for creating a Grande Cuvée every year.
The collaboration dinner consists of a four-course menu and a bottle of Krug Grande Cuvée #167, which will be delivered to your doorstep before the event. Click here to order.
