From 22nd to 25th MAY – To honour the famed RHS Chelsea Flower Show; Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester has created an inventive ‘Lunch Hour’ menu inspired by the vibrant horticultural displays and showcasing the very best of seasonal ingredients.
The savvy ‘Lunch Flower’ set menu at the acclaimed three Michelin Star restaurant can be served in under an hour and is the perfect location to relax and celebrate creativity and design.
The decor of the soft, elegant dining room was designed by Patrick Jouin who was inspired by elements of nature from the nearby Hyde Park, including more than 30,000 raw silk buttons in shades of emerald and spring greens as though Hyde Park has grown into the room.
For one week only, Head chef Jocelyn Herland will serve a three course menu for £55 featuring Hereford SNAILS, a VEGETABLE tart in bloom with a fresh herb condiment and seared ARCTIC CHAR with a garden of fresh seasonal vegetables.
Green-fingered Head Pastry Chef Angelo Ecrolano has created a playful ‘Sweet Daisy’ dessert resembling a blossoming potted flower. The layered dessert includes white chocolate and jasmine tea cream petals paired with a mango and jasmine compote centre, all set atop a mountain of decadent chocolate crumble.
Two fragrant wines have been selected by Head Sommelier Vincent Pastorello to accompany the menu including 2010 Alsace Pinot Blanc – Mise du Printemps and the 2006 Lalande de Pomerol – Chateau Moulin La Graviere.
The ‘Lunch Flower’ Menu is available from the 22nd to 25th May, priced at £55 for 3 courses and includes 2 glasses of wine, half a bottle of mineral water and coffee or tea.
