WILDE, Dublin’s most Instagrammable restaurant, has partnered with Champagne House KRUG this season to launch the winter edition of their exclusive tasting menu. You’ll find carefully sourced Irish produce, decadent 1930s design and flavours of the season, elegantly orchestrated by Executive Chef Sandeep Singh who works with the best artisan suppliers and the finest local ingredients from across Ireland. The winter additions include a warming chestnut and apple soup complimented by aromatic sage oil, Thornhill duck breast served with parsnip and cardamom purée and a winter vegetable fricassee, with a modern take on a classic Dublin Bay shrimp and tiger prawn cocktail served with Marie Rose, avocado and lime. Top off a season celebration with a wine list centred on Old-World grape variety or the perfectly paired flavour of KRUG, ranging from KRUG Grande Cuvée 163rd edition, 164th edition and KRUG Rosé.

WILDE have shared a deliciously rich dessert addition to any Christmas feast – their recipe for Valrhona Dark Chocolate Tart.
