Bon appétit

For one-night only, savour the Southern French creations from culinary tour de force, Chef Stéphanie Le Quellec

Less is often more when it comes to Chef Stéphanie Le Quellec. The food that comes through her kitchen at La Scène in Paris is one of sophisticated simplicity, a hallmark that has garnered the restaurant a deserving star in the Michelin guides. Imagine Southern French cuisine reworked with a contemporary sleight of hand, then further elevated by the finest produce of the season, and you'll begin to see Le Quellec's inspired creations.

Acidulated egg yolk, green asparagus and morel with yellow wine

Fortunately, you don't have to travel to Paris to taste her culinary magic. Come 4 June, she'll be staging a pop-up dinner at the Museum of Contemporary Arts. The one-night only dinner forms part of Epicurean Journeys, a three-day gastronomic event staged by The Luxury Collection Hotels & Resorts. 

Scampi with toasted buckwheat and garden cucumbers

The six-course dinner comprises such signature dishes from La Scène as lightly seared scampi paired with toasted buckwheat and garden cucumbers; foie gras served with shrimp and turnip; and line-caught sea bass back dropped by varying textures of cabbage. Each dish will be paired with a flight of French wines selected by Sarment, wine merchants who have at their disposal some of the finest wines in the world.
