Ong Chin Huat gets the first taste of “The Louis XIII Experience” – a menu pairing between the King of Cognac and exquisite Chinese cuisine at Yun House in the Four Seasons Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
It is only fitting that the finest cognac is paired with the most sumptuous dishes and at the Four Seasons Hotel Kuala Lumpur, this match made in culinary heaven has become reality at “The Louis XIII Experience”. It’s a food pairing menu which incorporates the legendary Louis XIII cognac with a six-course meal at Yun House, the Four Seasons Hotel Kuala Lumpur’s highly acclaimed Chinese restaurant.
Costing approximately US$7,000 for a table of 10, the meal which can be booked either for lunch or dinner centres on Cantonese cuisine with highlights on regional specialities and incorporates local ingredients. It is accompanied by a 70 cl decanter of Louis XIII cognac.
Alternatively, you can have a meal for two with two glasses of Louis XIII cognac priced at US$720 per person.
Utilising the freshest ingredients with exacting preparation techniques, the first course begins with the Four Seasons Combination Plater which consists of Foie Gras Roll, Crispy Silverfish and Deep Fried Mushroom followed by Double-Boiled Abalone and Fish Maw Soup with Morel Mushrooms and Sea Whelks.
The third course satiates even the most demanding palate with the mouth-watering Braised Lobster with Lily Bulbs and Truffle Oil while the next course showcases the chef’s skill at its finest – Steamed Coral Garoupa Fillet with Scallion Oil and uses the highest quality Garoupa fish.
The signature dish Wok-Fried Fish Paste Noodles with Canadian Scallops is a reboot of a much-loved home cooked dish and dessert come in the form of Dessert Duo of Homemade Pineapple Pastry and Bird’s Nest with Almond Cream served in Whole Young Coconut.
Each of the six courses is accompanied by the rich and aromatic Louis XIII cognac, with all the dishes designed to bring out and magnify the exceptional qualities of this King of Cognacs. A private room at Yun House which has an extensive view across KLCC Park has also been christened the Louis XIII Room, with all the Louis XIII Experience served there.
According to Chris Kwek, Louis XIII Private Client Director of Southeast Asia, collaborating with the Four Season Hotel is not something new to the luxury cognac brand. “The Four Seasons Hotel has been one of our coveted partners for many years globally. We are thrilled to further grow and develop our strong relationship with the Four Seasons Hotel Kuala Lumpur and its patrons. Louis XIII Cognac is an icon of French art de Vivre and excellence. Similarly, the Four Seasons hotel exemplifies a true luxury hospitality brand in its own right, an icon, an experience.”
And there couldn’t be a more suitable venue to showcase the magnificence of Louis XIII than at Yun House, currently the hottest Chinese Restaurant in town. Modern and contemporary but never sacrificing the luxurious nature of its décor, Yun House is both substance and style and tantalises the taste buds with its adaption of classical Cantonese cuisine and has won plaudits from gourmands and foodies alike.
