Famed for her dramatic and varied landscapes, the Midi-Pyrénées of Southern France is a region that stirs imagination.
If the best produce are borne from the most picturesque of lands, then Midi-Pyrénées is a treasure trove of French epicurean goodness. This agriculturally rich region is home to some of the most convivial country dishes of France. Preserved in time and tradition, many of these dishes are virtually unknown to those outside of this South Western enclave.
In conjunction with the month-long celebration of French cuisine known as Le French GourMay, Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong is excited to be taking the traditionally rustic and rich gastronomy of the Midi-Pyrénées region into the Asian city of Hong Kong- a fascinating encounter between country and urban, home-style cooking and Michelin fine dining!
The menu at Caprice Bar on the 6th floor of the Hotel will be entirely devoted to a celebration of the singular cuisine of this region. Some recipes have nearly been lost to the passage of time, while other dishes (think cassoulet!) may be more well known but rarely found prepared by a two-star Michelin chef.
On top of a menu of homey, hearty dishes, guests can also sample cheese delicacies from the region in Caprice Bar. Replenished weekly with shipments from small artisanal cheese makers, Hong Kong’s first cheese cellar will be featuring cheeses like Rocamadour, Roquefort, Pyrenean Tomme, some pillars of the cheese world that originated in the Midi-Pyrénées.
After a meal of rustic French foods and cheeses, guests are invited to end their Midi-Pyrénées dining experience by lingering over a glass of France’s oldest and finest brandy Armagnac, a suitably rare digestif to swirl and sip while contemplating this culinary journey to parts of France unknown.
We regret that reservations cannot be made and seats are available on a first come, first served, basis but we hope you will visit us soon! You are always invited to call in advance to check availability on (852) 3196 8860.
