Waldorf Astoria Beijing Launches New French Menu

Waldorf Astoria Beijing has introduced a French menu inspired by Chinese imperial cuisine at its popular eatery Brasserie 1893, with Chef Addison Liew teaming up with chef Ivan Li to curate a special French menu inspired by authentic Qing Dynasty cuisine.

The seven-course set includes Ocietra Caviar and Sea Urchin – a modern interpretation of one of Empress Dowager Cixi’s favourite dishes – and Classic Duck Foie Gras Terrine with Port Wine and Cherry Marmalade. Inspired by Emperor Qianlong’s favourite duck liver recipe, the dish is served with steamed buns from northern China. Those with a sweet tooth can sample a Wuliangye’s Blessing, a classic Crème Brûlée made with China’s favourite Baijiu, bird’s nest.
