Hennessy Presents “Rediscovering the Taste of Hong Kong”

Paying Tribute to Guangdong Culinary Art with Michelin-starred Ying Jee Club and Yee Tung

Hennessy presents the “Rediscovering the Taste of Hong Kong” campaign to showcase the fascinating pairing of the world’s finest cognacs and local Michelin-starred cuisine during the festive season. The new tantalising seasonal menus are designed by the chefs of two-Michelin-starred Chinese restaurant Ying Jee Club and one-Michelin-starred Yee Tung Heen using the best seasonal ingredients and cutting-edge appliances from Gaggenau, the German manufacturer of high-end home appliances. While diners savour the impeccable dishes, they can also explore the diversified beauty of Hennessy cognacs, indulging in the beautiful harmony of distinctive flavours.

A Tradition of Perfection: Siu Hin Chi, Executive Chef of Ying Jee Club
For over 37 years, Executive Chef Siu Hin Chi has led many Michelin-starred kitchens, such as Tang Court and Duddell’s. With almost 20 Michelin stars under his belt over the past decade, his talent and skills have been widely recognised. This year, his incredible team at Ying Jee Club received two stars again in the Michelin Guide Hong Kong Macau 2019. An expert on seafood, both fresh and dried, Chef Siu has been pursuing excellence in presenting the best-in-class Guangdong classics.

 

 

Yee Tung Heen – Traditional Braised Pork in Braised Pear with Abalone, Dried Octopus x Hennessy X.O

The nourishing pear perfect for the dry season is given a fragrant twist by being steeped in the rich sauce infused with the essence of pork and abalone. The fat of the pork softens the dried octopus and highlights its tantalising flavour. Diners are invited to embark on a gourmet journey by enjoying the incredibly tender, savoury yet sweet pork first, followed by the juicy pear and the luscious abalone from South Africa. The delectable contrast between the richly layered flavours and succulence is finely balanced by the refined peppery and fruity tastes of Hennessy X.O, completing the sensational pleasure.

With his ingenious menu, Yee Tung Heen received one Michelin star in the Michelin Guide Hong Kong Macau 2019. From the overall design to the pairing of gourmet dishes with Hennessy X.O, every detail manifests the chef’s passion for excellence.
