Shang­hai call­ing

Join Gourmet Trav­eller and lux­ury travel spe­cial­ist APT at Madame Shang­hai for a be­spoke Chi­nese ban­quet.

Gourmet Traveller (Australia) - - On The Table -

Lux­ury river-cruise spe­cial­ist APT and Gourmet Trav­eller are once again join­ing forces to cre­ate un­for­get­table jour­neys. To cel­e­brate their on­go­ing part­ner­ship and launch the new itin­er­ar­ies for 2018, they’re host­ing a spe­cial be­spoke din­ner at the new Madame Shang­hai, in Syd­ney's Dar­linghurst.

The restau­rant’s el­e­gant Chi­nois­erie dé­cor evokes the Shang­hai of the

1930s – the ideal am­bi­ence for dis­cussing the Chi­nese tour, the 13-Day Best of China: Bei­jing to Shang­hai. This jour­ney in­cludes a four-night cruise on the Yangtze River, a cruise around Bei­jing’s Sum­mer Palace in a tra­di­tional ves­sel and lunch at the Great Wall of China. Guests will also hear about the other itin­er­ar­ies, all of which in­clude ex­pert-guided tours, spe­cially de­signed one-off meals and ex­clu­sive ex­pe­ri­ences, mak­ing for unique ad­ven­tures. Mem­bers of the Gourmet Trav­eller team will join the tours to share their in­valu­able in­sight.

For this cel­e­bra­tory ban­quet, Shang­hai-born ex­ec­u­tive chef Chris Yan’s menu is largely Shang­hai-in­spired with a fo­cus on the char­coal grill seen in dishes such as sa­tay chicken skew­ers and king prawns, while re­gional in­flu­ences ap­pear in the likes of soft-shell crab with Sin­ga­porean chilli sauce. Join us for this taste of China – it prom­ises to be an in­spir­ing evening not to be missed.
