By now, you might have heard that Singapore's own Janice Wong was featured in Ottolenghi and the Cakes of Versailles, a documentary about the revisioning of one of France's most decadent past time—the confectionaries favoured by French royalty during Louis XVI's reign.
Commissioned by the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Yotam Ottolenghi, chef, restaurateur, and food writer, put together a team of patissiers from all over the world to produce a menu of treats that could stir even the basket of guillotined royal heads. As one of the five chefs approached for this, Wong's chestnut quince cake with lemon curd was featured on the film's official poster.
To celebrate the release of the documentary, Wong launches a menu called Cakes of Versailles High Tea. Collaborating with Sam Bompas, Harry Parr and Dinara Kasko from the film, as well as with local chef, Mohamed Al-Matin, comes a high tea that offers a glimpse of the royals indulged in.
The Cakes of Versailles High Tea Menu will run on weekends at 2am:dessertbar from 3 October through to 1 November, with limited sets available each day. For reservations, click here.
Ottolenghi and the Cakes of Versailles is available to watch online.
