On the 9th August, The Ritz-Carlton Jakarta, Pacific Place graciously hosted Chef Oliver from Maggie Joan’s Singapore for a delightful wine-pairing dinner. Guests savoured an exciting Mediterranean-inspired five-course dinner menu crafted by Chef Oliver and The Ritz-Carlton Jakarta, Pacific Place Executive Chef Sean Macdougall. Originating from the United Kingdom, Chef Oliver’s youth belies his experience, boasting successful stints in the Michelin-starred kitchens of the Roux brothers, the Waterside Inn and Gordon Ramsay.
For the appetiser, diners enjoyed a tantalising dish of beef tartar, kimchi and smoked beef fat, paired beautifully with Freixenet Elyssia Pinot Noir. The second dish was silky burrata cheese, ripe plums and deep-fried shio kombu, matched with Babich Pinot Gris Marlborough. For the main course, a perfectly grilled lamb loin was served with black garlic sauce and refreshing smoked yogurt. The dish was sublimely paired with a glass of Duc des Nauves Côtes de Bordeaux. Two desserts were served to end the delicious affair, a dainty serving of coconut sorbet and rock melon ice, as well as a harmonious dish of goat cheese, honeycomb and sorrel. The dessert wine chosen for the pairing was Domaine du Tariquet Les Premières Grives Côtes de Gascogne.
