The latest evolution of The Manor’s Stories of the Sea – the Eighth Chapter – offering a wealth of seafood extravagance and showcasing the finest ingredients of seas of the world will be available from May 13, 2021. The six-course menu, crafted by Executive Sous Chef Michele Dell’Aquila was designed to highlight the freshness of the seafood and tantalize the tastebuds with exceptional flavor and texture.
Signature dishes of Stories of the Sea – the Eighth Chapter, include fresh Belon Oyster served with yuzu sorbet and tapioca passion fruit, and aged raspberry vinegar foam. The acidity of the citrus and berries balance the saltiness and strong flavors of the oyster, providing a sense of freshness on the palate. The eighth iteration of the Stories of the Sea menu includes seared sturgeon capped with Baerii caviar and a selection of rich side dishes featuring French Ratte potatoes, then followed by smoked Atlantic mackerel with green beans, soaked in tuna fish broth and garnished with mackerel tartare and Oscietra caviar. To maintain the tender texture of the fish, Chef Michele uses a variety of cooking techniques to maximize flavors, including searing, smoking, and the gentle sous-vide method that slowly cooks the fish in a vacuum over a longer time to preserve the delicate nature of the fish.
The sous vide rock fish Kasago paired with black ink orzo and sakura shrimp, cress and zucchini flower, and succulent Mediterranean sea bass with baby fennel and seaweed butter, salt pickled cherry blossom powder and Loire Valley asparagus will both satisfy guests with their robust yet simple flavors.
For a perfect end, the Strawberry Sensation featuring strawberries imported from France will delight with a strawberry mousse and light ganache with strawberries freshly marinated and balanced with an intensely flavored basil ice cream. The carefully curated wine pairing has been prepared by Sommelier David Duan, featuring a selection of premier wines from France, Italy, New Zealand, and Germany, matching perfectly with the ocean flavors of each course.
When: May 13–July 31, 2021
How much: MOP $888 per person, MOP $1,288 (with wine pairing)
