Raffles Hotel Le Royal, one of Cambodia’s most iconic hotels, is set to welcome Michelin-starred French Chef Patrice Hardy, who will present some of his most celebrated culinary creations during two days of exclusive meals at the hotel’s renowned Restaurant Le Royal on March 30 and 31.
Chef Patrice’s gastronomic expertise draws from his extensive experience in illustrious restaurants worldwide, including the two-Michelin-starred Le Palme d’Or at Hotel Martinez in Cannes and the one-Michelin-starred La Brettonnière in Boulogne-Billancourt and La Truffe Noire in Neuilly.
The back-to-back lunch and dinner offerings will feature highlights from his latest culinary venture, Le Mazet, located on France’s southern coast. The Michelin Guide has praised Chef Patrice’s love for fine produce, particularly truffles, which feature prominently on his special dinner menu.
Dinner guests will savor a five-course meal that includes a veal tartare with Borghi truffle, goose liver in “Bonbonnière” with green asparagus and yellow wine emulsion, poached sea bass with artichoke duo and truffle butter, beef onglet marinated with caramelised shallots and red cabbage, and a sumptuous bread pudding with aged cognac siphon and apple-prune purée. The dinner is priced at $95++.
For lunch, guests can choose from a three-course menu that features creamy Parmesan cheese soup with poached egg or marinated mackerel fillets with beetroot and ketchup sorbet. The main course includes Takeo River lobster risotto spicy bisque or free-range chicken supreme stuffed with potato mash and cola sauce, and a dark chocolate tart with parsley ice cream to conclude. Lunch is priced at $38++.
To complement the exquisite meals, guests will also have the opportunity to discover the exclusive Louis XIII Cognac Experience, which will be served tableside from a decanter. Wine pairings are also available for both lunches and dinners.
