Krug launches the 2019 single ingredient Krug X Pepper, an unconventional and surprising food pairing and the fifth single ingredient to be celebrated at Krug. Honouring the philosophy of individuality, Krug pays tribute to the unassuming pepper and the many pleasures it can reveal when paired with Krug Champagne. Krug X Pepper takes place across July and August and sees three restaurants, The GreenHouse, Rosa Madre and Montys of Kathmandu, specially create a dish of culinary pleasure using the single ingredient, each crafted to pair beautifully with a glass of Krug Grande Cuvée.
Wherever in the world a bottle of Krug is being shared, it has a wonderful ability to connect people. Krug champagne is about these special never-to-be-forgotten moments, which are made even more exceptional with the delicious addition of food alongside a glass of Krug enhancing the whole experience. With each year Krug X Single ingredient brings new and exciting moments to share, celebrate and savour. Since 2015, Krug has celebrated five single ingredients that have a playful tribute to Krug’s individuality.
At The Greenhouse (Dawson Street, Dublin) chef Mickael Viljanen serves hand dived scallops with mouthwatering, frozen oyster, elderflower & jalapeño pepper, caviar, paired perfectly with a glass of Krug Grande Cuvee. Available throughout the day the Single Ingredient Krug X Pepper dish is included in the set four or six course menu, with a glass of Krug Grande Cuvee costing €65 plus set menu price.
