This August, it’s all about spices at Capella Singapore. I am very excited as we prepare for the Old World Spice and Wine Tasting Experience happening from the 29th of August through the 1st of September.
One of the things I am looking forward to is to try the cuisine of our guest chef, Meryem Cherkaoui. Chef Cherkaoui is a Moroccan chef, who has spent many years in France perfecting the exquisite French cooking techniques and incorporating the flavors of Moroccan cuisine.
Having visited Africa once on a holiday, I can well attest to the vibrant flavours and aromas that arise from all the exotic spices used in their cooking. As such, I am truly anxious to savor the flavors of Morocco made with the intricacy and delicacy of the French kitchen.
The other person I am very excited to meet at the Old World Spice and Wine Tasting Experience is Nora Gasparini, a perfumer who specialises in creating bespoke perfumes and fragrances for people. Nora is based in Bali, which is home to the exotic scents also used by prestigious beauty brands such as Hermes and Dior. I was thrilled to learn that she was no stranger to these exclusive spices and also uses them in her work.
What is particularly exciting about Nora is that, in line with the gourmet spice and wine event, she is bringing a selection of spice infusions created from edible spices. Imagine being able to create your own special perfumes from ingredients in the kitchen!
One of the main highlights in the series of events is the Old World Spice and Wine Tasting Experience taking place throughout the grounds of Capella Singapore on Saturday the 31st of August from 11:30am to 5:00pm. Chef Mereyem, together with the chefs at Capella Singapore, will be creating different stations featuring tapas made with spices from various parts of the world. These tapas will also be paired with a selection of 26 rare Old World wines.
To add to the festivities, Nora will also have a station set up where she will be able to do personal consultations on creating unique scents and perfumes for each person.
Old World Spice and Wine at Capella Singapore is definitely an event to look out for. I am eagerly waiting in anticipation for all the four days of exciting and epicurean adventures.
