Each first Thursday of the month, Shangri-La Hotel La Bauhinia organizes a 100% green menu highlighting vegetables. Nature-inspired atmosphere, waiters dressed in jeans and checkered shirts, rhythmic music, the place completely changes in comparison of what it usually looks like to offer a different and stimulating evening.
Throughout the evening, executive chef Christophe Moret offers you a true culinary work of art around the kitchen garden. We need to say he knows his trade well since he is the grandson of a truck farmer. He happily works and enhances vegetables according to seasons and in respect of freshness, transparency and ethic.
He wants to show us that we can enjoy a meal by only eating vegetable. Each month, he provides a new menu created according to the seasonal vegetables. His creations are surprising such as the Bloody Mary based on tomatoes or the watermelon spring rolls filled with soup herbs, kasha and green vegetables cooked casserole with almond milk, turnips, beetroots (cooked in wooden fire) and tofu served in beautiful ravioli (and borscht vinaigrette) to end with strawberry tasting like a sangria and a coco-lime sorbet…
To go along this green dinner, you can count on the wise advice of the very attentive sommelier chef. For this dinner, he favors wines aged in biodynamic agriculture and offers to end your meal with a fair trade, non-roast and hand-harvested tea, coffee or hot chocolate. If you like cocktails, the menu gives pride of place to vegetables with cucumber, kale, celery and ginger juice. Perfect to get loads of energy!
Since Shangri-La gets to the bottom of the concept, every first Thursday of the month, it invites the producers that supply the restaurant. That way, you can meet them and talk about their products, they will also listen to your needs. At each dinner, a truck farmer, a wine grower and a grower will be present.
