Dani Garcia (two Michelin stars) and Ferran Adria (3 Michelin stars) created a special menu at Raffles hotel in Beijing. We couldn’t miss the opportunity to sample some of their famous food for lunch!
Prawn with pine nut ice-cream, truffles, pine nuts and truffle honey
This was the first time I’d ever eaten pieces of truffle. And the first time I’d ever had pine nut ice-cream. And the first time I’d had a prawn shaped into a circle. An appetiser of firsts. And possibly the most delicious thing I’ve ever eaten.
Iberian Pork dumplings
Being used to Asian dumplings, these were such a delight! It was a little taste of Spain in a delicate filling, and the broth was amazing. I ignored the fact that I was in a swanky restaurant and tilted my plate to get every last drop.
Sea bass with citrus gazpacho
Nic and Zac had this one. I got a sneaky taste of fish that melted away. And the foam was perfect.
“The Moon” – a white chocolate ball, filled with custard and fruit, with a silver coating
Wow. Even the plate had a silver moonbeam painted on it.
