The Langham Hong Kong is home to the latest gourmet experience. The two Michelin-starred restaurant T’ang Court presents a new age of astronomical dining with its exclusive Biodynamic Wine and Dine Menu.
Showcasing a synergy of east and the west, T’ang Court’s Executive Chef Kwong Wai Keung offers a six-course journey to introduce Chinese flavours to cohesively blend with biodynamic wines from Slovenia’s Movia Winery that have been harvested according to the position of the planets.
Slovenian wines have been influenced from Slavic traditions, along with its Austrian and Italian neighbours, and deemed to be the oldest vines in the world as a whole. Veered as the national wine of Slovenia, Movia Winery has taken a step forward to refine their grapes viticulture approach through biodynamic farming.
It is an idea that sees the vineyard as an ecosystem and emphasises the holistic development and the interrelationships of soil, plants, animals and farmers as a whole. Believing that crops would be of better quality if they are attuned to external energies as well, farmers grow and harvest their grapes according to the natural alternation of astrological influences and lunar cycles. This elevation from traditional organic farming is believed to have improved both the taste and nutrition value of the wine produced.
The culinary journey of the east and the west begins with an appetiser assortment of Chilled Sliced Abalone with Jelly Fish, Barbecued Pork and Sliced Cod Fish with Lemon and Honey sauce, professionally paired with a 2005 Puro Rose wine, followed by the award-winning Stir-Fried Sliced Lobster with Spring Onions, Red Onions and Shallots matched perfectly with a 2012 Sauvignon. The menu continues on with a Stir-Fried Sliced Pigeon with Goose Liver Pate, Crispy Dough and Water Chestnut paired with a 2009 Pinot Nero, while the Baked Blue Point Oysters with Port Wine and the Alaskan Crab Meat with “Tianjin” Cabbage goes with a 2011 Sivi Pinot Ambra. The Stewed noodles with Shredded Chicken, Fish Maw, Ginger and Spring Onion alongside a 2007 merlot, completes the last savoury course. Concluding with something sweet, guests will taste a European-style chestnut paste pudding baked with sago.
Following a culinary journey of the east and west that sees the likes of Chilled Sliced Abalone with Jelly Fish, Barbecued Pork and Sliced Cod Fish with Lemon and Honey sauce paired with a 2005 Puro Rose wine, the experience is complemented by fine Chinese teas that are biodynamic as well to help digestion and cleanse the palate for each course.
