“A Love Letter to Loire” at WHISK by 2 MICHELIN Star Chef Christophe Hay, Owner of La Maison d’à Coté
Hong Kong: With a menu that reads like an intimate letter to his beloved home region – the bucolic Loire Valley – accomplished French Chef Christophe Hay will appear at the ingredient-driven
Western restaurant of The Mira Hong Kong, WHISK, on 2 nights in July, right on the heels of the French GourMay festival that was all about the idyllic “royal river”. Set on serving a taste of slow life to Hong Kong’s spoilt for choice and fast-living gourmands, the owner of a 2 star Michelin restaurant will present an 8-course degustation experience featuring favorite compositions from his signature menu offered at La Maison da Cote where he brings forth heritage ingredients in excellently cooked dishes that are worth va detour.
Humble, modest and fully engaged in interacting with his guests, Chef Christophe Hay takes it as a pointof pride to take orders from his Guests in person at his destination restaurant which feels more like a stylish, convivial living room merged with the immaculate kitchen, rather than any countryside dining establishment. La Maison da Cote, a part of a 12-room family-run boutique hotel just off the Chambord castle, features tastefully appointed interiors accentuated with contrasting azure tones referring to the
gently flowing river that has been providing abundance of flavors to royalty and countryside folk alike for centuries.
The menu by Chef Christophe pays tribute to the local produce as it is precisely woven with the riches of the riverbed of France’s longest river which meanders from the heart of the country towards the Atlantic and many claim it is an exceptional reflection of cultural heritage dotted with UNESCO
