Martell collaborates with Chef Nathalie Arbefeuille of Nathalie’s Gourmet Studio to present a first-of-its-kind, multi-sensory fine dining experience that sits squarely at the intersection of art, gastronomy, and cutting-edge technology. The five-course epicurean journey, which is crafted to magnify the flavors of the finest Martell cognacs. Served in a cinematic wonderland made possible with immersive, state-of-the-art 360° projection, the ever-shifting experience blurs the lines between taste, scent and sight.
Martell Brand Ambassador for Malaysia, Pierre Boyer says, “Truly, Chef Natalie has transformed the pleasure of dining into an art. Martell invites all gastronomy enthusiasts to ‘Be Curious’ and experience this cinematic dining experience for themselves and embark upon an unassuming journey of awe and wonder.”
Prepping the palate for the multi-sensorial journey, guests enjoyed three finger foods to start, red detox juice, pomegranate jelly, smoked salmon and ginger, Hokkaido scallops and caviar ring, and broccoli gorgonzola spiral. The Martell Cordon Bleu paired perfectly with the second starter In The Woods, a dish of crispy foie gras, artichokes, porcinis in two ways, shaved truffles, and a duck and truffle consomme.
Under Water, the third starter of caramelised Hokkaido scallops, poached oyster and pearl cream, dieppoise sauce and mushroom mousseline, was complemented with the Martell Cordon Bleu Extra. The main course, Circus that is a veal dish cooked to perfection with, paella flavours risotto, saffron and capsicum jelly and ground sea influence, perfectly matched the spicy and peppery flavours of Martell XO. Finally, the perfect balance of aromas and sensations of Martell Chanteloup Perspective made ‘Make A Wish Perfect Apple’ dessert go down a treat.
