It’s gonna be a Cloudy Bay

Satureyes commissioned to cover the launch of a joint venture between the Hyatt Regency and vintner Cloudy Bay. The event was a unique experience, set at the Chef’s Table at the Hyatt Regency.

Iconic Marlborough winery Cloudy Bay, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, has linked up with the Chefs at Hyatt Regency London – The Churchill’s restaurant The Montagu, to launch a Chef’s Table, offering the best seasonal food expertly matched to wines from the Cloudy Bay portfolio.

The Chef’s Table overlooks the open plan kitchen at The Montagu restaurant, offering diners a front-row seat from which to watch the tasting menu come to life. Chef de Cuisine Carlos Teixeira and his team have created a five-course gourmet menu incorporating the best of the season’s produce, designed to perfectly complement the full portfolio of Cloudy Bay wines.

Satureyes spend the evening shadowing the team  as they prepared each gourmet course, including hand-carved fois-gras at the table.

Just to make your mouth water – here’s the menu :)icon_smile
