For two nights only, he will be joined by Chef Ronan who has made a name for himself as one of the most recognised chefs in France. The visiting chef is currently at the helm of La Table de Plaisance in Saint-Emilion, renowned for its unique and creative cuisine along with unparalleled French wines.
The nine-course menu features Chef Ronan’s signature dishes from his restaurant La Table de Plaisance, located in Saint Emilion, as well as Ossiano favourites. Upon arrival, guests will be greeted with Ossiano canapés before tasting the delights of oysters with kiwi tartare, dulse meringue, chervil sorbet and sea foam. The Chefs will serve Brittany king crab with puys lentils, crab jus perfumed with curry and coral, light coconut cream, followed by hake on sea lettuce with clams and asparagus.
The bresse poultry, stuffed with lobster, crunchy ink, shellfish oil and artichoke will please with its rich flavours, before the sweet taste of cheese doughnut with duck fat and nori jam. For dessert, diners will indulge in an apple soufflé and cider caramel with green apple sorbet and cinnamon and the mouthwatering Brazilian chocolate crème brûlée macaé 62%, coffee espuma and buckwheat crumble.
Ossiano’s Chef de Cuisine, Grégoire Berger comments: “Chef Ronan and I are equally inspired by our memories of Brittany, and the incredible produce found at land and sea. Crafting this menu was a reflective experience of matching flavours and ingredients from our past, to create a unique culinary spectacle.
