Wine and Food Pairing at La Rive

unnamed4
This evening we are invited to experience La Rive, a special dining experience where the chef designs a tasting menu which is paired with the perfect wine to match the flavours of each dish.

unnamed3There were six courses, as well as an Amuse Bouche to start -which was served with a prosecco cocktail.

The first course was a lemongrass Creme Brulee served with a 2010 Grauburgunder, followed by salmon carpaccio paired with a 2011 William Fevre Chablis.

We enjoyed a crayfish and mango salad with chilled sauvignon Blanc and then came the soup course, a porcini cappuccino with a blue potato chip, paired with a Rheingau Riesling.unnamed

After a refreshing palate cleanser of grapefruit sorbet, we moved on to the main course.

The main course was filet of beef a la “Scenic”, with foie gras, served with a 2005 Rocche di Castigione Riserva Barolo. Fabulous.

It is a good thing we just need to walk to our rooms after this!
It was a beautiful meal and we felt very pampered.  The evening eneded perfectly with a Zither concert performed by Tomy Temerson in the main lounge.
