Chef James Sharman’s Wedding Menu Picks:
The traditional suckling pig served with pickled radish and char siu-pickled wolfberries (a powerful antioxidant that can also strengthen your immune system) not only offsets the fattiness of the pork but also refreshes your palate.
THE CHICKEN & THE PUMPKIN
A clean and sophisticated take on the traditional crispy chicken served with a healthy, delicious serving of pumpkin puree with ginger and sesame. Serve with a passion fruit mocktail, the lightly sour and sweet flavor of passion fruit could refresh your palate after tasting the delicious and fulfilling crispy chicken and pumpkin.
