Quique Dacosta brings his ‘techno-emotional’ cuisine to Singapore
On 18th September 2014, Sofitel So Singapore presents a rare opportunity for you to experience the culinary genius of Quique Dacosta, Spain’s hottest three-Michelin-star chef. The master of ‘techno-emotional cuisine’ Dacosta has a reputation for creating edible landscapes that evoke the aroma and texture of the environment and leave guests with a sensory experience that is truly extraordinary. He will present a specially designed five-course menu in Singapore’s hottest new restaurant Xperience, with each dish paired with fine wines from Spain’s Castell d’Encus winery.
The dinner is priced at just $538++ including matched wines, making this the most affordable way to experience Dacosta’s cutting-edge gastronomy without having to purchase a flight to his homeland of Valencia. Feted amongst legendary chefs including Ferran Adria and the Roca brothers, Da Costa is part-chef, part-botanist and designs dishes that are masterfully minimalistic while embracing bold flavours. He spends months researching and perfecting his menus and is renowned for presenting plates that are avant-garde and artistic.
The dishes being presented will include:
The Haze – a dish that recreates the taste of humidity and warm of the earth after a storm – featuring pine nuts, raw peas, pig crackling crumble with mushrooms, black truffle and small flowers – paired with a Taleia 2012
Cuba Libre of Foie Gras – a Dacasta signature of melt-in-your-mouth foie gras with cream, veiled with coca-cola and rum and granita of lemon with brioche on the side – paired with Ekam 2012
The Hen of the Golden Eggs – a poached egg cooked at low temperature with a broth of chicken and vegetables, coffee and gold – served with Ascup 2011
