    Écriture’s Special International Women’s Day Menu on 8th March, 2021
    Serving for one day only, the International Woman’s Day 2021 menu begins with a creative appetizer of Topinambour, a root vegetable (otherwise known as Jerusalem Artichoke) with an earthy and nutty flavour. Topinambour is infused with smoked eel and topped with caviar for an exquisite start to the meal. Other highlights of the menu include Butternut Cuttlefish Black Truffle, combining seasonal delicacies of cuttlefish, black truffle and sorrel with homemade Bagna Cauda (anchovy) sauce, and beautiful cuts of the coveted Blanc de Blanc Aveyron Lamb served with sweet potatoes millefeuilles and rooibos red tea.

    The desserts for this menu are led by Chef de Partie Tia Cheung, who usually works alongside Cyrus Yan to produce original sweets creations and modern interpretations of classic French desserts. Her extraordinary talent for pastry comes through in new desserts Citrus & Argan Oil and Rice and Honey (for dinner), available to savour only on Écriture’s International Woman’s Day 2021 menu.

    “To celebrate this special day, I have full confidence that the incredibly talented women with whom I am lucky to work with every day will deliver an exceptional dining experience to our guests at Écriture.

    About Écriture:

    Located on the penthouse floor of Hong Kong’s new cultural hotspot H Queen’s, Hong Kong hospitality group Le Comptoir presents ÉCRITURE, a space in which French cuisine is elevated to new heights by uniting it with exceptional Japanese produce to explore the endless possibilities that occur when Western craftsmanship meets Eastern philosophies. The East and the West have long held a mutual fascination and respect for one another, and at ÉCRITURE this comes together not only on the plate, but also in the effortlessly understated interiors. The restaurant takes its name from a series of paintings by Korean artist Park Seo-Bo – a work from which hangs in the private dining room, injecting a bold splash of red into a design scheme that celebrates the untold harmony found in contrasts and oppositions.
