Taste of Edesia | A French Celebration 

In conjunction with the “French GourMay” Festival that celebrates gastronomy à la française, The Manor at St. Regis Macao crafted an a la carte menu with the absolute finest ingredients that gives French cuisine it’s irrefutable position at the forefront of worldwide culinary excellence.
“French GourMay wine dinner” menu treats guests to a six-course degustation of dishes presented specifically to showcase the highest quality providence from the land and seas of France, as well as a matched wine selection that enhances the flavours of each dish while paying homage to France’s remarkable wine heritage.
The Manor’s Executive Sous Chef Michele Dell’Aquila believed France is renowned as one of the world’s most sought-after sources of food and produce, and the special menu celebrates that hard-earned reputation.
“French cuisine has long set the standard for world cuisine and bases itself on the principle of refined presentation of the best ingredients on offer – and that is what this menu is all about,” Chef Michele said.
“This Celebration menu honors French culinary tradition as well as continuing The Manor’s mission of allowing the highest quality ingredients to shine through as the star of the dish.”
The wine dinner includes seared foie gras from Strasbourg served with fig and pear salad, Brittany lobster with fennel, Loire Valley asparagus, crab and bouillabase, and tender French turbot with Jerusalem artichoke purée, mushrooms and white butter dressing.
At its best in spring, Aveyron Lamb – Agneau de l’Aveyron – are rare breed lambs born and reared in Aveyron in the plateaus of south western in France, resulting in delicate meat that is rose-pink and tender, served with potato mille-feuille and spring vegetables.
For a perfect finish, a selection of “Les Freres Merchand” cheeses and a Valrhona chocolate manjari complete the dining experience.
The wine pairing, carefully curated by in-house Sommelier David Duan, draws inspiration from the geographical source of much of the dining menu, and features wines from France’s most famous wine regions including Champagne, Alsace, Loire Valley, Burgundy and Bordeaux.
