Review: #KrugxEgg – The House of Krug Puts the Egg into the Limelight

 
Which came first, the chicken or the egg? According to archaeologists, the latter.

On 23rd June 2016, the House of Krug launches its book – Poached, Scrambled or Fried? in Singapore, featuring an essential ingredient that might be considered simple – egg.

Thanks to seventeen of the world’s highly talented Krug Ambassade Chefs, their inspirational and unique egg-based creations, paired with Krug Grande Cuvée are seamlessly brilliant and complex.

“Champagne is the perfect accompaniment for egg dishes. The bubbles in Krug Grande Cuvée along with its light sweet yet dry flavour help cut through the creaminess of the egg. It creates a beautiful cleansing finish.” – Ryan Clift

Indeed it was when I attended the exclusive dinner held at JAAN last week.

Liquified omelette

Liquified Omelette with Smoked Eel & Crispy Shallots by Ryan Clift, Tippling Club (photo credit: Jenny Zarins)

Paired with Krug Grande Cuvée 159th EDITION

Before this dish arrived, I was running different images in my head of how this liquified omelette would look like. Let’s just say I was quite far off the charts. The smooth creamy texture of the omelette was extremely light and that paired harmoniously with the robust smoky eel. The boldness from the Krug Grande Cuvée re-balanced my palette after each bite.

Carabinero Prawn ‘Carbonara’ with Parmesan Cream, Egg Yolk in Smoked Oil, Bacon Ash by Christopher Millar of Stellar at 1-Altitude (photo credit: Jenny Zarins)

Paired with Krug Grande Cuvée 159th EDITION

As Chef Christopher Millar has warned us this dish was nothing like the usual carbonara, I literally sat back and prepared myself to be wowed. I almost felt guilty for sinking my fork into the perfectly poached egg yolk. Thankfully, the sweetness from the carabinero prawn did not steal the limelight away from the velvety yolk.

This dish arrived with great fanfare.

The dry ice effect never fails to draw attention and sent us clicking away with our cameras like hungry paparazzi. And yes, it tasted as good as it looked, leaving me with little to complain.

Grand Finale consists of a trio of desserts specially put together by the 3 chefs.
