It was truly a night to remember when Tatler Singapore hosted a mix of Generation T individuals, thought leaders and Tatler friends at Nobu Singapore last week. Held as part of the Tatler Singapore x Johnnie Walker Blue Vault Dinner Series, the evening saw society’s most influential connecting over whiskey, good food and invigorating discussions.
The night kicked off with Johnnie Walker cocktails, served from the Nobu bar as guests arrived in style.
Guests were then seated in the intimate space where they were invited to browse a small booklet featuring an introduction to Nobu, a sneak peek at the unique whiskey-infused dishes that they would savour for dinner, as well as note by Nobu’s executive chef himself, Hideki Maeda.
The seven-course meal, which was crafted by Maeda, featured some of Nobu’s signatures.
The meal kicked off with French oysters that were prepared Nobu-style. The oysters were dunked in lemon juice and topped with rich and creamy uni and caviar.
They were followed up with yellowtail sashimi garnished with coriander, ginger and chives, tuna sashimi salad doused in Matsuhisa dressing and a rack of lamb, which was created just for this collaboration. The lamb was served up in a Blue Label-infused vanilla miso sauce that balanced out the taste of the tender meat.
The dinner concluded with the pastry team’s deconstructed banana and mango dessert, which combined a flakey vanilla crust with sweet caramelised pecan nuts, vanilla-whiskey cream and tangy whisky ice cream.
But that’s not all. Guests were also invited to write three words that inspired them so that The Novel Encounter, who was present for the evening, could craft personalised poems for each guest. This sparked conversation amongst guests, many of whom dove into topics like blockchain, the metaverse, craftsmanship and more. As the night went on, the conversation ventured into the future of cryptocurrency, digitalisation and more.
