The House of Krug partners five top-notch chefs in Singapore to put together a premier dining trail that unearths the culinary potential of the humble mushroom.
Since 2015, Champagne maison Krug has worked with talented chefs globally to explore the possibilities of a single ingredient. In 2015, it was the ordinary potato. Last year it was the egg to receive gourmet treatment as 17 Krug Ambassade chefs from around the world worked to transform a simple ingredient into a Michelin-level creation worthy of the gods.
This year it’s the elevation of the mushroom. In a culinary trail titled “From Forest To Fork”, Krug has worked with five incredible Singapore-based chefs to showcase the edible fungi in various dishes while pairing them with the Krug Grande Cuvée Champagne. From Atlas Bar and Hashida to JAAN, and The Song of India to Tippling Club, each participating restaurant boasts an amazing dish featuring the flexible ingredient.
