This autumn, the House of Krug Champagne is renewing its annual tradition in collaborating with chefs by creating a unique dish based on a single ingredient with Krug champagne pairing. On the fifth year of this campaign, six chefs from Hong Kong are crafting these exclusive dishes based on peppers, available throughout this season.
Peppers exist in different textures, sizes, colours, and flavours, the myriad of such ingredient excites the palate with complexity of sensation, from the fiery Amazonian habanero pepper to numbing Sichuan peppercorns. Six Krug Ambassade chefs will interpret their chosen pepper, creating a dish that will present a surprising pairing with Krug Grand Cuvée and Krug Rosé.
The six creative chefs include Umberto Bombana (8 ½ Otto e Mezzo), Vicky Cheng (VEA), Uwe Opocensky (Petrus), Guillaume Galliot (Caprice), Mori Tomoaki (Daigo by Mori Tomoaki), and Robin Zavou (The Krug Room at Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong) Together the chefs will present their bespoke champagne pairing dish, each available at their respective restaurants.
