Blend's Buysse Brothers To Return To Brasserie On The Eighth

Digest

Promotion: April 20 - 29, 2018 (Expired)

The duo returns to Conrad to reinterpret the cooking of the Dutch Golden Age with modern techniques

In partnership with chef Daniel Lee, the Buysse brothers of Blend in The Netherlands will present degustation dinner menus of four and six courses at Brasserie On The Eighth this April. The inspiration behind the dishes comes from the Dutch Golden Age, a time when maritime and trading activities brought the Netherlands significant wealth, as well as exotic plants and ingredients. The royalty of the country used to combine these foreign influences with the finest local ingredients to forge a new Dutch cuisine.

Highlighted dishes include herring, beetroot, sunchoke, horseradish and caviar; and Blend croquettes, which mixes many now-unused cut of a pig that were once used by the people of the time. The latter dish is served with curry—which was newly imported to the country from India then—along with micro greens and spicy sesame, and is paired with Duvel beer, also a Golden Age staple.

Served from 20 to 29 April, the Dutch Golden Age degustation menus are priced at HK$980 (four courses) and HK$1,280 (six courses) respectively, with the option of wine and cocktail pairings by Kamiel for another HK$480.
