Private Client Dinner at Brian McKenna@The Courtyard hosted by Austen Morris Associates and Alquity 165 120 AMA Team

Thank you to all guests who joined us on Thursday 28th February 2013 for the Austen Morris Associates Private Client Wine Dinner in association with Alquity Investment Management Ltd. at The Courtyard, Beijing’s hottest new concept by Chef and Owner, Brian McKenna.
Brian McKenna @ The Courtyard is a new development by award-winning Chef and restaurateur, Brian McKenna. Set in the Forbidden City, the dinner was a specially prepared menu with wine pairings, which blended Mediterranean influences with Asian flavors in an invigorating way. The menu prepared for Austen Morris Associates included canapés followed by a tantalizing pea and coconut soup with pancetta crisps, foie gras on caramel rice, oyster with lime and star anise paired with a 2007 Jean-Marc Brocard, Chablis. The first course included a Garden Salad with unique “Mugaritz” potato pebbles paired with a 2005 
Simonnet-Febvre Premier Chablis. Following was the Asparagus Soup with a crispy egg, smoked duck and black truffle paired with a 2007 Maison Champy Signature Chardonnay, Bourgogne. Paired with a 2006 Hewston Mad Hatter Shiraz, Mclaren Vale, the main course was the Australian Spring Lamb laid over a bed of Egg- yolk ravioli, potato fondant and garnished with basil cream. Finally, the dessert was a Chocolate Terracotta warrior filled with Mandarin orange paired with a 2007 Château Roumieu Haut Placey.
