La Dame de Pic has introduced a limited-time tasting menu featuring the Dom Pérignon x Lady Gaga Vintage 2010 paired with exclusive culinary creations.
There’s a special new menu at La Dame de Pic in Raffles Singapore. The Singapore outpost of the eponymous fine-dining concept by Chef Ann-Sophie Pic of three Michelin-starred Maison Pic fame has tied up with Dom Pérignon to introduce The Creative Banquet, a limited-time, seasonal tasting menu that sees the limited-edition Dom Pérignon x Lady Gaga Vintage 2010 paired with some of its most exquisite culinary creations.
The Dom Pérignon x Lady Gaga Vintage 2010 is part of a collaborative range of champagnes between the iconic Champagne producer and multi award-winning artiste Lady Gaga, who is best known for some of the most flamboyant outfits the music world has seen.
The Creative Banquet, available from now till 8 January 2022, is a five-course pairing menu specially curated by La Dame de Pic’s Chef de Cuisine Francesco Di Marzio to showcase the limited-edition vintage champagne. To highlight and accentuate that unique champagne expression, Chef Francesco approached this refined menu with an approach that “evokes the freshness of an English garden after the rain and lushness of a tropical garden with an earthy depth”. He’s also given most of the dishes a bold splash of pink, much like that jaw-dropping Brandon Maxwell dress Lady Gaga wore to the 2019 Met Gala.
The exclusive menu begins with a flourish of elegant canapés and amuse bouche before the first course of Koshihikari Rice with Oscietra Caviar. This sturgeon roe atop top-quality award-winning Japanese rice combination is a take on Japanese ikura gunkanmaki reinterpreted for French fine-dining sensibilities. Little round discs of radish – marinated with hints of rose and Tasmanian peppercorn – provide counterbalancing acidity and texture.
This is followed by La Dame de Pic’s signature Berlingots, but this seasonal version sees the delicate pasta parcels filled with melty French cheese fondue that’s doused with a coffee-infused beetroot broth. Likewise the main course continues La Dame de Pic’s love affair with seafood from Brittany; The Blue Lobster from Brittany features a shelled Brittany lobster that’s been roasted over coals and then doused in a red berry consommé scented with sencha leaves and yuzu. Here the sweetness of the shellfish absolutely highlights the vibrant acidity and soft minerality of the champagne.
Dessert begins with the cheese course that is Picodon Cheese with Kalamata Olives, but presented as an elegant slice of cheesecake. Finally to end the epicurean adventure there’s Williams Pear and White Tea, a confectionery creation of chestnut flower honey mousse and hibiscus jelly paired with Reine de Reinettes apple tatin and silver needle white tea ice cream.
The Creative Banquet tasting menu at La Dame de Pic featuring the Dom Pérignon x Lady Gaga Vintage 2010 costs from S$1,188++ for two guests, inclusive of a bottle of limited edition Dom Pérignon x Lady Gaga Vintage 2010 champagne. This limited-time menu runs from 8 December 2021 to 8 January 2022 (excluding 24, 25, and 31 December).
