A Grand Symphony Of Food And Wine Awaits…

Master Chef Jean-Francois Meteigner and leading Sommelier Jean-Bernard Baudron have once again put their heads together to prepare the second food and wine pairing dinner at The Grand Bistro at The Grand Ho Tram Strip.

Wine Dinner in June (2)

This time, promising an upscale fusion of Western and Asian cuisines, guided by Chef Jean-Francois’ classical French training and drawing inspiration from the ingredients he finds in his adopted home of Vietnam, diners at the 27 August event are set to be wowed by a six course menu expertly paired with wines from Australia, France, Italy, Chile, and Portugal.

“The first time Jean-Bernard and I teamed up, we served a menu that diners and regular guests are still asking about to this day,” – said Chef Jean Francois.   “It was only natural then that The Two Jeans would sit down once again and work out how to better our first effort.”

“Whenever I get a moment to myself, I can be found wandering the markets of Vietnam, taking in the produce, the sights, and smells of ingredients.  I wanted this time to look for a creative expression of my career thus far – from my classical French training, through the varied dining experiences of the restaurants from my days in the US, and wed those to the ingredients that I have come to adore here in Vietnam,” he said of the forthcoming menu.

The night will bring to diners a feast featuring three kinds of delicious canapes, followed by three types of fresh seafood.  A trio of foie gras follows that.  This flows seamlessly into a Risogallo Carnaroli Risotto which in turn sets the scene for a Trio of Lamb dishes.  The meal is rounded out with a dessert centered around another trio – this time of Vietnam chocolate.

“We’ve gone with trios for this menu – three ways to present each of the featured ingredients and three ways in which each can be enjoyed by diners.  We really cannot wait to hear what people think,” Jean-Francois explained.

Meanwhile, hunched over a corkscrew, his Partner-in-Dine SommelierJean-Bernard is one of Vietnam’s best known wine-identities.  With over 22 years experience in the wine field, and now resident expert and Saigon wine-institution The Warehouse he has trained wine merchants from all over the world.
