Cel­e­brat­ing Cre­ativ­ity

Indonesia Tatler Traveller - - HEAVEN ON EARTH -

Art takes cen­tre stage in Hong Kong this spring, as the city plays host to Art Basel and a cor­nu­copia of other cul­tural shows and events. To celebrate this kaleidoscope of cre­ativ­ity, one of the city’s most con­sis­tently imag­i­na­tive restau­rants, Felix at The Penin­sula Hong Kong has un­veiled a spe­cial art-inspired tast­ing menu that takes guests on a mul­ti­sen­sory jour­ney to culi­nary nir­vana. Fol­low­ing on from last year’s much-praised menu based on some of the world’s most in­flu­en­tial art­works, Felix’s Chef Yoshi­haru Kaji has dreamed up a five-course din­ner inspired by a va­ri­ety of cre­ative pur­suits, from art and mu­sic to per­fumery and ar­chi­tec­ture, as well as some of the world’s most fas­ci­nat­ing cul­tures. This ex­tra­or­di­nary menu is avail­able from 6 pm each night in March and April 2015. The five-course meal by Chef Kaji is a feast for the eyes and senses. For ex­am­ple, the open­ing course, “Eng­land and Mu­sic”, puts a clever spin on two Bri­tish com­fort food clas­sics while pay­ing homage to the coun­try’s in­flu­ence on pop­u­lar mu­sic. As well as Chef Kaji’s in­ter­pre­ta­tion of the Scotch egg and cheese and ba­con muf­fin, the dish also fea­tures sev­eral sub­tle ref­er­ences to a cer­tain fa­mous four­some from Liver­pool and the Union Jack. For those who choose the wine pair­ing op­tion, this is com­ple­mented by a glass of Ridgeview Knights­bridge 2010, a de­light­ful English sparkling wine.
