The Upper House launches a cheese and wine pop-up on their lawn
Time Out says
Known for coming up with bursts of food and beverage creativity in Hong Kong, The Upper House, which most recently launched a teakha pop-up, is introducing something that they’ve named C’est Cheese – The House Cheeserie, a pop-up made for cheese and wine.
The menu – which will change up every week – offers a good variety of cheeses sourced from responsible producers and farmers across France, Italy, Switzerland, and the Netherlands. Pair this with wines picked by their award-winning chef sommelier, Leo Au, and you’ve got yourself a fine evening.
Some of their cheese and wine pairings include a firm aged Swiss Cheese called Vacherin Fribourgeois, which is creamy, nutty and balanced with natural acidity. As suggested, this is best paired with an unfiltered sparkling Yamanashi sake from the Shichiken brewery, which helps to temper the more complex flavours of the cheese. Another is a softer Italian taleggio cheese from the Bergamo region of Alpine Lombardy region, which is aged for 100 days, paired with a beautifully complex Poulsard from Domaine du Pelican in the Jura.
The pop-up is available on Tuesdays through to Sundays (closed Mondays and subject to Government regulations) until December 30 and will take place on The Lawn area, so as to take advantage of the slightly cooler weather in Hong Kong and enjoy alfresco moments. Cheese boards are priced at $275 for three, $475 for five, and $675 for seven cheese. There’s also a 50 percent discount on selected bottles of wine from 5pm to 7pm.
