For one month only, experience fine cognac craftsmanship with the house of Hennessy at Chef Darren Chin’s DC Restaurant. A rare gastronomic experience that has been one year in the making, the end product is a conscientious menu that perfectly embodies and complements the elegance of the Hennessy Paradis Impérial.
Crafted by Chef Darren, whose dedication to unpretentious, versatile dishes is almost unparalleled in Kuala Lumpur’s culinary landscape, the spring menu shares similar veins with the Hennessy Paradis Impérial blend. Only 10 out of 10,000 of the eaux-die-vie from the Hennessy library of barrels make the journey towards the end of the harvest, into a Hennessy Paradis Impérial blend—each bottle of cognac a mark of Hennessy’s own relentless quest for perfection.
This art of selection that the house of Hennessy so champions is mirrored in Chef Darren’s own carefully curated menu for this experience, catering to the elegant complexities of the cognac and the tasteful palate of the diner. “To reinvent the essence of it, the menu uses the same unique processes that come into the creation of Hennessy Paradis Impérial,” says Chef Darren.
The fish-based “Homage of M. Paul” makes up the fourth course, but even at this point, three quarters into the gastronomic experience, Chef Darren’s execution did not cease to amaze. Potatoes are fashioned to look like fish scales, delicately placed atop the fish, and complemented with a wildflower honey sauce—a quirky take on an otherwise conventional looking dish.
