Zo­diac in­spi­ra­tion

China Daily (USA) - - LIFE -

HKK, Hakkasan’s up­scale sib­ling, has just launched a new eight-course tast­ing-menu series in­spired by the 24 terms of the Chi­nese so­lar calendar. The so­lar terms are based on the sun’s po­si­tion in the zo­diac and play an im­por­tant role in Chi­nese cul­ture and cui­sine. The menu will be re­freshed ev­ery two months to re­flect sea­son­al­ity and the rel­e­vant so­lar terms. The cur­rent menu fo­cuses on the Bailu, mean­ing white dew, which in­di­cates the be­gin­ning of cool au­tumn. It fea­tures spiny lob­ster and pump­kin soup and uses one of the most op­u­lent in­gre­di­ents in China, fish maw, con­tain­ing a host of nu­tri­ents that are ben­e­fi­cial to the body and skin. 88Wor­ship Street, Broadgate Quar­ter, be­hind Lon­don Liver­pool Street Sta­tion, +44 (0)20-3535-1888.
