S.Pellegrino takes the Orient Express to Singapore
S.Pellegrino and Acqua Panna are proud to announce their partnership with The Orient Express Exhibition in Singapore, as the exclusive waters for the six-month event.
Until 13 June 2021, visitors can discover the luxury and mystique of the legendary train that has inspired countless works of literature and cinema, in the exhibition's first destination outside of France.
Covering an area of 2000m2, the event brings a fairy-tale universe of travel, culture and gastronomy from Europe to Asia. Setting up the exhibition involved transporting a 158-year-old locomotive and two original carriages classified as National Treasures of France, along with 300 related artefacts, all the way from France to Singapore - no small achievement considering the obstacles posed by the pandemic.
France has also provided another highlight of the exhibition - gourmet food. Visitors can enjoy a bespoke dining experience at a pop-up restaurant set in a replica Anatolia dining car, run by triple-Michelin-starred Chef Yannick Alléno. Crafted with luxury, history and fusion in mind, Alléno's creations interpret the myth of the Orient Express in all its glory.
The champagne brunch boasts a cornucopia of treats from homemade Viennoiseries to lobster Thermidor, while afternoon tea promises foie gras with figs, caviar lime madeleines, and much more. The lunch menu features such delights as scallop quenelles with duxelles and raw Paris mushrooms and slow-cooked cod, spinach and Scamorza soup, while dinner highlights include king crab coated with a farmhouse cream and braised French sole with vin jaune, Comté cheese crust and walnut condiment.
As the exclusive waters for the event, S.Pellegrino and Acqua Panna will be on the bespoke restaurant menu and also sold at the café, which offers an exquisite selection of dishes prepared by Chef Alléno’s team.
