What do you think about Ginett's Wine Masterclass Is Back With A Twist Thurs 25 to Sat 27 October 2018 7pm?

The second instalment of Vineyard to Table brings a battle of the regions to Ginett 

Following the success of the first instalment of Ginett’s Vineyard to Table event in June, the French restaurant and wine bar are bringing their wine-and-dine series back for one epic and delicious battle between two of the world’s most loved wine regions; Bordeaux and Burgundy.  

The two French regions are both considered to be ‘lands of legends’ by wine connoisseurs the world over, but in this five-course dinner, Ginett is pitting them against each other as they fight for the title of gastronomic greatness.  

Hosted by French wine expert Jacques Varet, born and raised in Bordeaux, and Ginett’s very own Executive Chef, Hervé Frerard, a Burgundy native, the two-hour Masterclass will be offered over three evenings from Thursday 25th to Saturday 27th October.  

Inspired by classic French cooking, the evening will pair modern interpretations of the regions’ favourites with ten Bordeaux and Burgundy grown-drops  that have undeniably helped define the world of wine.    
Lightly honeyed with a creamy mouthfeel, a glass of 2016 Chablis, Domaine Millet will compete against the flowery aromatics of Graves white, Chateau Tour Bicheau 2016 when paired with crispy Burgundy snails served in filo pastry and a garlic espuma.  

The war will wage on, as Burgundy and Bordeaux battle it out to win the heart of the first main; a Dover sole fillet served with a velvety red wine mirror sauce and pearl onion compote. A 2012 Listrac Medoc, Chateau Fourcas Hosten will be paired with the juicy flavour of prized French Bresse Chicken; the highest quality chicken available in the world, made only better by the addition of an indulgent truffle butter and luxuriously soft ratte potato puree.  

Finally, as the last men fall and the weak begin to surrender, a dessert of Boreaux Caneles, with their crispy exterior, and irresistibly soft custard centre will be flambéed with aged rum to triumph and signify the end to what will surely be a deliciously fun, and well-waged war between two of the best.  

The five-course dinner featuring ten generous pours is priced at $95++ per person; an experience not to be missed for any wine or culinary enthusiast.

Singapore has long cried out for a stylish and magnificent bistro and Ginette hits that sweet spot. The chef is exactly as you would expect a French chef to be - ebullient and charming, as well as loaded with a full retinue of marvellous stores about cooking across Asia. The food is properly bistro style - apparently, the word bistro comes from the Russian troops who occupied Paris following the Napoleonic Wars and bystro means fast in Russian. Fable has it that they would yell this at the hapless restauranteurs who took too long to serve them. The charcoal grill is a winner - La Côte de Boeuf is epic and a sure fire date night extravagance - especially washed down with a bottle of Château Beau Site, St.Estèphe. Alternatively, go for an easy lunch and try the salad bowls are a healthier option and we really liked the Umami Grain Bowl. Wine is from $6 a glass - it's pretty good - and you can get a proper glass of fizz from $12. All in all Ginette is a great place to either go for a drink or have a fully blown 3 course French dinner. Just as a proper bistro/brasserie should be - but without the napery.
