Lalique announces dining collaboration in Asia

Renowned French crystal brand Lalique has announced its first dining collaboration with a Cantonese restaurant in Asia.

Starting from 13 January, Michelin-starred Cantonese restaurant Ming Court at the Cordis hotel Hong Kong will offer a year-long dedicated wine pairing menu in partnership with Lalique.

The menu is exclusively served in a private dining room decorated with Lalique crystal ornaments, including chandeliers, vases and sculptures, with design elements inspired by the nature, such as tree leaves and swallows.

The pairing menu itself covers 11 courses, featuring seasonal ingredients such as abalone, caviar, sea cucumber, bird’s nest, and wagyu beef – crafted by executive chef Li Yuet Faat of Ming Court.

As one of the pioneers in promoting Cantonese cuisine with wine pairing in Hong Kong, Jason Lui, sommelier of the hotel, has chosen four wines to complement the dishes, three of which are from wineries owned by the chairman of Lalique.

The line-up kicks off with Louis Roederer’s 2008 Cristal, followed by Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey Grand Vin Sec Bordeaux Blanc 2016, Château Faugères Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé 2016, and finishes with Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey Grand Cru Classé Sauternes 2015.

The wines are all served in glasses from the Lalique and James Suckling 100 points collection.

The eleven-course dinner with four pairing wines is priced at HK$2,888 plus 10% service charge per person, available for booking for six to twelve guests.
