Behold a dinner experience that redefines luxury through sight, sound and taste.
Here’s a delicious collaboration like no other. The wild child of champagne Maison Perrier-Jouët and “fun” dining restaurant Babe is hosting a dinner series aptly named “Art of the Wild” from Oct 26 to Nov 11. This is also to celebrate the appointment of 1-Michelin Star Chef Jeff Ramsey as PerrierJouët’s chef ambassador for Malaysia.
The partnership between Perrier-Jouët and Ramsey is described as an exhilarating journey that celebrates the finer things in life, in both champagne and in food. The series of game-changing, art nouveau-themed dinner series is inspired by the intricate floral champagnes borne out of Maison PerrierJouët’s 200-year-old history.
Ramsey will serve his Autumn menu that honours the integrity of fresh produce and seasonal discoveries; selected editors recently sampled the menu and can affirm that it is simply divine! Inspired by the chef’s tour of Japan, The Excursion (RM220++), The Journey (RM350++) and The Voyage (RM680++) comes in six, 10- and 11- courses respectively.
“Good things are sure to come out of this partnership because, first of all, it is with a brand I consider extremely prestigious. Secondly, food is extremely sensual, and Perrier-Jouet stands for a certain femininity that we try to achieve at Babe,” mused Ramsey.
The pairing begins at first, with the Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque 2008, a wonderfully vibrant vintage that presents crisp freshness with good length on the palate. Diners will find the champagne ideal in balance of delicacy and structure, making each sip an invigorating, lively attack with a hint of freshness – a perfect complement for entreés like the ‘Crystal Gyoza’, a dish of translucent dumpling and cabbage soup and the ‘Umami Tartartlette’.
The Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut is delicate, elegant and balanced. The striking freshness and vivacity of the floral and fruity fragrances of the champagne, coupled with subsequent dishes like the ‘Nagano Walnut Soba’, with seven different herb, root and seed condiments, offer a mouthful of experiences.
For a satisfying finish, the Perrier-Jouet Blason Rose’s generous blend of fragrant pear, citrus and mature red fruits that give way to notes of biscuit, butter and pastries, is the cherry atop the Martell VSOP aged in Red Barrels Mont Blanc made of infused chestnuts and vanilla creme.
“Chef Ramsey – with his playful and funloving approach to Babe’s progressive modernist cuisine – is perfectly aligned with our free-spirited ethos,” enthused Pierre-Jouet brand ambassador JeanBaptiste Gourvil.
Over three weekends, Perrier-Jouët will also take over the restaurant to introduce its emblematic vision of “rewilding”, bringing luxuriant nature to the dining room in unexpected ways that promises to take dining to a lush, new level. One can expect a dining experience that will redefine luxury through sight, sound and taste.
