Martell Pairing Dinner

P1140435

During a food tasting recently, I was served a four course meal comprising starter, soup, main and dessert – each paired with selected Martell cognac. The amuse bouche was a white gazpacho with salmon tartare. We were told to eat the salmon tartare first, followed by the gazpacho.

Hokkaido Scallop, Cauliflower Puree, Fish Skin Cracker, Mixed Mesclun
*paired with Martell Cordon Bleu*

My starter of Hokkaido scallop was done with finesse and the salmon caviar topping gave it an extra depth in flavour. I liked how the duo used fish skin crackers to add texture and contrast to the dish. Both the scallop and amuse bouche was paired with Martell Cordon Bleu, known for its mellow notes with best casino a long and smooth finish.

I loved the soup that night – foie gras veloute with smoked garlic toast. Even the name sounds sexy, at least to me. This was was pure and simple, yet intense. Very elegant, and aptly paired with the Martell Chanteloup Perspective. The cognac boasts a delicate smoothness, complex flavours and a lingering finish. Definitely something for very special occasions.

US Black Cod, Butternut Pumpkin Gnocchi, Chilli Oil, Classic Cream Carbonara
*paired with Martell Chanteloup Perspective*

After our palate cleanser of passion fruit granite, we tucked into the main course of our choice – I opted for the US Black Cod (paired with Martell Chanteloup Perspective) and rif, the Master Kobe MB10 (paired with Martell XO).

*paired with Martell XO*

I liked my main course better – the cod was crisp around the edges and the flesh was meltingly tender; almost buttery. The kobe was tender and flavourful from the marbling, and served with a side of fried glutinous rice and Muscovy duck. Pretty decent, but the cod fared better in my books.

Baked Cheesecake, Fireworks Crumble, Kamquat Confit in Tarragon Infused Syrup
*paired with Martell Chanteloup Perspective*

Dessert was the duo’s rendition of baked cheesecake, served with fireworks crumble and kumquat confit in tarragon infused syrup – paired with Martell Chanteloup Perspective. It was not only tasty, but fun to eat. Especially when the crumble crackled slightly in the mouth.

All in, it was a good dining experience for both rif and I. That said, I will need to revisit this place on my own to see if the food is consistently this good.

Food: 7/10 (pork free)
Verdict: I was quite impressed with the starter and soup. And this Martell pairing was better than the one at Sage.
