The Heritage Series “Golden Butter” Guernsey Cow and Berry-Fed Aylesbury Duck

November 1, 2018 Dining No Comments Email Email

Starting October, The Lounge & Bar at The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong shines the spotlight on some of the world’s most ancient livestock breeds. Gourmets are invited to savor the original flavors of such dwindling heritage breeds including the Guernsey and Blue Grey Cow as well as the Aylesbury Duck.

“Compared to the industrial farmed products, the ancient breeds have very distinct tastes and are much more nutritious,” says Executive Chef Peter Find.

The set dinner menu featuring rare breeds Guernsey Cow- known for its deep-yellow “golden butter” and Blue Grey Cow will be available until December 9, 2018. Following the beef menu, The Lounge & Bar will be launching a duck-themed menu starting December 10, 2018, available until the end of January 2019.

Embracing the “Nose-to-Tail” philosophy, the menus have been painstakingly designed with little or no wastage of every cut.

“As a leading luxury hotel, we should always be ahead of the game and introduce new food trends to our guests,” says Chef Peter. “Through re-introducing these historical varieties back to our plates, we hope to re-instill commercial value to these rare breeds and thus promote the farming business.”

Heritage Beef Menu:

The menu will highlight both the Guernsey Cow and Blue Grey Cow. The Guernsey Cow originated in the Channel Islands between France and England is known for its nutritious milk in rich golden color. The milk has three times more of Omega 3 than other breeds of cows. The menu will also be serving Guernsey Organic Butter with Beer Bread to highlight the unique characteristics.

The Blue Grey Cow, native to Scotland’s scenic Lake District is named after its “roan” coat. Bred to withstand the harsh mountainous climates, the Blue Grey cattle offers a slow-grown succulent texture and rich flavors.

The breed is highlighted on the menu through dishes including the Roast Beef served with horseradish cream, homemade pickles and autumn salad and the Blue Grey Burger with Bone Marrow served with bone marrow herb topping, caramelized onion and cheddar cheese bun. The menu is paired with traditional British drinks including Belhaven’s St. Andrews Amber Ale and British sparkling wine by Berry Bros. & Rudd.

Heritage Duck Menu:

Enjoy the festive celebration with the decadent Heritage Duck menu. The star of the menu is the Aylesbury Duck- a rare English breed raised on the rolling green hills overlooking Port Campbell near the famous Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia. The ducks roam freely from dawn to dusk and are kept on a diet of seasonal fruits including strawberries, quinces, pears and grains that have been fermented with fresh apples.

The high quality of life and care of these ducks offer remarkable tastes and nutritional density that is rare to find today. The flavors are accentuated in dishes including the Oven Roasted Aylesbury Duck Leg Confit, served on a bed of spelt and the nourishing Duck Consomme. The dinner menu ends on a sumptuous sweet note with the Traditional Lamington Cake drizzled with cinnamon-spiced plum compote, topped with a scoop of refreshing vanilla ice-cream.
