Craving new culinary adventures? You might want to sign up for our exciting Secret Dinner Society events, like this recent one with our friends from Wines of Ronda and Aura
In case you haven’t heard, Honeycombers recently launched Secret Dinner Society (SDS) – an exclusive supper club that will pop up at amazing dining spots all around the city. In February, we hosted our very first SDS sesh and it was one memorable night for everyone who stopped by. Think boutique organic wines from Ronda; sophisticated Italian dishes that were utterly delicious; a wonderfully luxe dining experience at the gorgeous Aura restaurant at National Gallery Singapore – we checked off that list on 7 February 2018.
Let’s start with the drinks…
Before we move on to the deets of the one-night-only event, we need to talk about the wine that got the night flowing. Wines of Ronda treated us to a generous tasting, and here’s what you need to know about Ronda itself: it’s a medieval town in Spain with a wine-making history that encompasses a whopping 2,000 years. It’s got the perfect environment for wine cultivation, which is why our guests were thrilled to sample a splendid selection of boutique and sustainable drops from the region.
What about the food?
As always, chef-restaurateur Beppe de Vito’s Aura restaurant delivered with on-point Italian creations. Our night began with great canapes and rose, and continued with a four-course menu which featured a great mix of classic Italian dishes paired with outstanding wines. To top it all off, the view overlooking the vibrant Civic District from the popular dining spot was nothing short of marvellous. Some unforgettable highlights included the trofie pasta with pork cheek, Angus beef tagliata and bone marrow, and the chocolate and hazelnut tart topped with whisky cream and cherries. Delizioso!
