Celebrating the month of love, Blancpain is teaming up with Sühring to launch a special 6-course tasting menu.
Gastronomy and watchmaking may not seem to go hand in hand, but Blancpain has always sought to break down boundaries and find new approaches to its Art de Vivre philosophy. For more than a year, the Swiss watchmaker has maintained close ties with chefs Thomas and Mathias Sühring, who are now part of the Brand’s intimate circle of culinary friends, a circle that now boasts more than 100 Michelin stars.
The two twin chefs wear their Blancpain watches — a Fifty Fathoms and a Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe — daily in the kitchens, where each dish is prepared to the rhythm of Blancpain’s flyback chronograph.
In this Valentine’s Day season, celebrating the close ties between haute cuisine and fine watchmaking, the legendary watchmaker joins forces with award-winning twin chefs to unveil an exclusive 6-course tasting menu that emphasizes precision and craftsmanship.
Where gastronomy and watchmaking meet
Inspired by the intricate details behind each of Blancpain’s timepieces, the tasting menu is made up of rare, premium ingredients, expertly prepared. Expect a journey of multi-dimensional flavors, made using seasonal produce and some of the best culinary techniques around. We are particularly enthusiastic about the AKI “Ossetra Imperial” caviar, where the king crab is served with caviar, supplemented with seaweed and quinoa.
The highlight of the menu, however, is a serving of blue lobster and Atlantic turbot. Here, fresh Atlantic turbot is served alongside a poached blue lobster, smoked clams and white wine sauce. Satisfying the most discerning foodies, the dish stands out for its rich, buttery aroma and the use of fragrant bay leaf oil – a satisfying staple for any couple.
End on a sweet note
Of course, it’s not a true Valentine’s Day meal without a sweet, sweet ending and on the dessert front, and Sühring doesn’t disappoint. Hazelnut takes center stage, as a decadent roasted hazelnut ice cream is served with a hazelnut praline. The 70% dark chocolate is offset by a tart freshness of apricots, topped with a creamy bourbon vanilla sauce.
The Blancpain x Sühring tasting menu can be booked for lunch and dinner, at THB 7,500 per person. For a truly special evening, the restaurant will exclusively serve the Valentine’s Day menu, where Blancpain and Sühring have also prepared special gifts for all guests.
