Alain Ducasse Does Sunday Lunch

Spoon by Alain Ducasse, the one-Michelin starred restaurant at the InterContinental Hong Kong, is offering a sophisticated, relaxed dining experience on Sundays with its new all-inclusive degustation lunch, which showcases traditional French delicacies by executive chef Stéphane Gortina and pastry chef Oliver Lannes.

Guests will be welcomed with a glass of Alain Ducasse Champagne, an exclusive rosé sparkling wine by Bernard Rondeau, or a delicious mocktail, before beginning their feast with a viennoiseries selection that includes croissants, pain au chocolat, pain au raisin and homemade bread served with bordier butter, jam and honey.

The degustation lunch begins in earnest with homemade organic muesli and farm fresh cottage cheese, followed by a choice of crepes or waffles served with fresh crème fraiche and chocolate sauce. For the following egg course, diners can choose to have their organic eggs prepared with black truffle, fresh herbs, wild mushrooms, vegetables or organic bacon, before indulging in French Iberico ham served with pickled vegetables, and homemade salmon gravlax served with sour cream and blinis. For the main course, guests can opt for meat from a carving trolley; steamed wild fillet of fish served with green vegetables; or an oven-baked cookpot of cereal and local seasonal vegetables.

Finally, the degustation lunch ends on a sweet note with a selection of matured cheese served with a crushed dried fruit condiment; fresh mixed berries with a choice of homemade seasonal sorbets and ice cream; and a choice of pastry chef Oliver Lannes’ fresh baked goods.

The Spoon Sunday Lunch includes free-flowing wine, fresh juices, and freshly brewed coffee or tea. The degustation lunch is served on Sundays between 12 and 230pm, and is priced at HK$788 (US$102).
