Hungry, as usual, we decided to grab a quick bite and headed straight to the booth of perhaps the biggest name of the event- 3-Michelin-starred Alain Passard's L'Arpege.
This is his Sweet and Sour Tomato with orange blossom. Tangy, sweet and really fresh-tasting heirloom tomatoes. The course sea salt really brought out the flavours of the tomatoes!
Then it's back out in the sun for some food. Good thing there's ice cold beer! This Russian brew wasn't very tasty but given the heat, it was mooch welcome.
Here's Gunther's Carpaccio of Wagyu Beef tartare-style, crispy potato. Very delicate tasting. Got to eat this quick before the super crispy potato at the bottom becomes soft.
For dessert, we opted for Chez Dominique's Potato and Malt. Fronted by Chef Hans Valimaki, this Finnish restaurant served up one very intriguing dessert that looks like a potato. Crack through the white chocolate shell and the inside reveals a potato ice cream that is both savoury and sweet. Nice textures too.
Moo thoughts on Savour. I like the concept and the feel of the event. The opportunity to try the signature dishes of many famed chefs in one place is great! If only the food prices were scaled back a bit. Portions were small, it's self-service and disposable plates/bowls were used after all. The other thing being the duration of the sessions could have been longer. I mean with the choice of so many classes to attend, an array of booths to visit and a good number of wines to taste, one can't and should not have to rush through it all....especially on a weekend.
Thanks to Nespresso, CROWD and Savour for inviting me over.
