The chef holds a total of seven Michelin stars across his three restaurants in Kyoto and Tokyo and also served as chairman of Japanese Culinary Academy. The delicate feast will be served along a selection of rare and refined whiskies from Suntory at Tokimeite the luxury Japanese restaurant located in London Mayfair.
Kaiseki, japanese Haute Cuisine, known as traditional multi-course Japanese dinner, demonstrating the variety of skills and techniques of the cuisine.
Suntory whiskies were originally created to suit the delicate palate of the Japanese, to enrich their dining experiences. The single malt’s fresh and gentle smoky nature is a natural partner to seafood; Hakushu Distiller’s Reserve has been chosen to pair with the opening assortment of starters, and the Hakushu 12 Years Old with the sashimi platter.
Hibiki’s elegant, complex and profound taste profile blends beautifully with subtle flavours, such as Hibiki 17 Years Old with the delicateness of the Japanese Wagyu beef.
Yamazaki, a deep and multi-layered whisky from Japan’s first and oldest malt distillery, is a wonderful companion to rich, grilled food. The succulent, fruity flavours of Yamazaki 12 Year Old complements the delicate grilled lobster and truffle perfectly. Whilst Yamazaki 18 Year Old’s full-bodied taste profile, contrasted with the mildness of the Hoji-cha ice cream, makes the perfect end to a Japanese dinner.
Shangri-La’s Le Touessrok Resort & Spa has partnered with Dom Pérignon to create an indulgent island experience for epicureans, available exclusively at the legendary Mauritian hotel.
Residents of the three iconic Beach Villas will be offered access to the Dom Pérignon Butler Experience, a dedicated butler available to serve the prestigious champagne to guests, anytime, anywhere.
