On Saturday 15th July (the weekend following Bastille Day), the Society is delighted to present a dinner featuring gems from the finest vineyards of France, carefully selected from the Society’s cellar to pair with a specially-arranged French menu at Forlino.
Forlino in One Fullerton offers a lovely view of the Bay. Gazing out through the floor-to-ceiling windows, we’ll enjoy the gentle dance of the Esplanade’s lights on the water at evening, as our palates wind their way through bottles from Champagne, Alsace, Burgundy and Bordeaux.
Chef Yvan Yingfeng will be helming the Forlino kitchen for our dinner. Chef Yvan’s culinary training in France was at Lycée Hôtelier de Gérardmer. He has worked in French restaurants throughout Asia, including a stint as Junior Sous Chef at Joël Robuchon in Singapore, before joining the DHM Group in 2014.
Wine highlights for the evening include a pair of mature Pomerols (Gazin 1999 and Clinet 1988), and Sauternes from an exceptional vintage (Suduiraut 1989).
Seats are limited, so do accord this your urgent attention and pledge your commitment early – whether or not you’re French. After all, it is everyone’s responsibility to appreciate fine food and wine, just as it is everyone’s responsibility to Make The Planet Great Again.
