Eugenia talks us through an introduction to Hungarian Wines.
Ms. Helga Gál, official sommelier of the Hungarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, visited Hong Kong to show us the true colours of Hungarian Wines.
When you think of Hungarian wine, the first thing that comes into mind is their famous Tokaji Aszu. But how much do we know of this wine country beyond their dessert wines? The official sommelier of Hungary’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs held a workshop at Hotel Icon’s Vinoteca to educate wine lovers on the impressive evolution and spectrum of wines from Hungary.

Pairing Sicilian red prawns with Rosé.
Obsessed with all things Sicilian, I was treated to a dinner at Messina last week. The chef’s menu offered a 4-course dinner with wine pairing, and I must say that the food was great but the wine pairing not as great. There were snippets of brilliance during the dinner that I would like to share.

Wine tasting – Exam time.
I don’t expect students, particularly those who choose to settle themselves on the back row, to participate in class, so during the tasting I move around and chat to smaller groups about their opinions on the afternoon’s wines.

Celia Hu reviews Restoration.
As a jaded Hong Kong diner, I am always looking for the “next new thing” in a restaurant experience. Last week led me to Restoration, a newish restaurant on Wyndham, which promises to bring the flavours of the Big Easy.

Pairing Szechuan food with Bordeaux.
Sometimes it’s so stuffy to pair food with wines, especially when it comes down to the textbook pairings.
Steak with Bordeaux, oysters with Chablis, foie gras with Sauternes. I just don’t get the hype with half of these pairings.
