A pop-up cel­e­bra­tion

The in­au­gu­ral Christ­mas Pop-up by Palais Re­nais­sance and epicure fea­tured 12 booths sell­ing blue­berry wines, be­spokes choco­lates, cus­tomised jew­ellery as well as a se­ries of well­sub­scribed mas­ter­classes.

Epicure (Indonesia) - - SEEN & SAVOURED -

Michael Bublé’s Christ­mas tunes lulled shop­pers and epicure read­ers in a jolly mood as they de­scended upon Palais Re­nais­sance from 7 to 8 De­cem­ber for the de­but of its Christ­mas pop-up. Held at the base­ment of the mall, 12 ven­dors were there to show­case their unique prod­ucts - just in time for Christ­mas gift­ing.

Tast­ing por­tions of blue­berry wine (with notes of baked pomegranates, cran­ber­ries, blue­ber­ries, cin­na­mon and clove) from Vin­tas, a Jerusalem Val­ley Noah Es­tate 2011 Mer­lot from Is­rael Wines, and Por­tu­gal wines brought in by Alen­ta­sia were handed out to shop­pers while they checked out the gor­geous per­son­alised cuffs and rings from SOAMI. Those look­ing for foodie gifts sought out the whole­some honey from Cer­ana Honey, lip-smack­ing fes­tive good­ies from

Ho­tel Jen Tan­glin, fra­grant English Break­fast Tea from Tea Story and ar­ti­sanal choco­lates from De­mo­choco. Adding on to the Christ­mas at­mos­phere, Palais Re­nais­sance ten­ants, such as Frunatic, Ishi­no­maki Grill & Sake, Prive Aes­thet­ics and Valen Fleur joined in the fun as well.

Early birds who signed up for epicure's com­pli­men­tary mas­ter­classes learned the 101s of tea and honey. Som­me­lier In­dra Ku­mar gave a tu­to­rial on Is­rael wines, while Arial Goh held court with a water­colours il­lus­tra­tion demon­stra­tion. An­other pop­u­lar mas­ter­class was the whiskey (cour­tesy of

Rémy Coin­treau) and De­mo­choco choco­late pair­ing. In the spirit of giv­ing, $100 worth of Palais Re­nais­sance shop­ping vouch­ers, a Whiskey Brunch for two at Ho­tel Jen Tan­glin and wine glasses from Schott Zwiesel were given out dur­ing the lucky draw.
