On Saturday 19th December, Michelin starred Chef Henk Savelberg of Savelberg Bangkok is reuniting with his former protegee, Chef Rick Dingen of Madison, to create a flawless French flair menu designed to complement the exquisite flavor notes of Dom Pérignon’s finest years of champagnes.
With its iconic sleek bottle design and luxurious black and gold branding, Dom Pérignon is the crème de la crème of French Champagne; as such Chefs Henk & Rick have teamed up to create an exclusive gourmet experience worthy of this wine. The intimate event offers local foodies and gourmands the opportunity to taste Dom Pérignon champagnes such as the star of the show Plénitude 2 Vintage 2002, the second coming of the legendary 2002 vintage and the 2008 Vintage Blanc, hailed as a champagne miracle due to the exceptional conditions of that year paired with show stopping dishes including foie gras and poached veal. The Vintage Blanc 2009 which boasts grapes harvested at the peak of ripeness, emerges for the lobster entrée whilst the meal is closed with the remarkable Rosé Vintage 2006, a stylish and mesmerising blush.
Chef Henk is the only Dutch chef to have been awarded a Michelin star in 5 different restaurants. In 2016 upon his arrival in Bangkok from the Netherlands, Chef Rick finessed his skills at the iconic Savelberg restaurant under Henk’s tutelage. Together these two outstanding Dutch chefs crafted this unique menu to showcase the very best of each of their skills. From Chef Henk’s signature appreciation of premium seafood demonstrated in his paring of premium langoustine with caviar, to Chef Rick’s love of incorporating local ingredients to classic French dishes, such as coupling Thai pomelo with the finest imported lobster. Guests can expect a menu centered around classic French flavours with a subtle Asian twist, elevated by the unmistakable taste notes of Dom Pérignon champagne.
Delight champagne connoisseurs with the ultimate gift in the run up to Christmas, a seat at the most highly coveted table in town. An epicurean adventure for those with a passion for excellent wines, Anantara Siam’s Dom Pérignon dinner is a one-off chance to celebrate all things oenophillic in the splendid surrounds of Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel. Decked out with magical festive decorations, and entertained by live music this will truly be a night to remember and the perfect way to ring in the festive season and toast to new beginnings with the onset of 2021.
