At upscale Cantonese restaurant Madame Fan, chef Pak Chee Yit infuses Martell Cordon Bleu into wholegrain honey mustard, which becomes the dressing for caviar and Hokkaido scallops. Braised pumpkin rice is cooked with Martell Noblige and served with steamed soon hock.

For zoologist-turn-Good Graces chef Grace Kee, she pours a shot of Martell Cordon Bleu into her hee peow soup to draw out the broth’s aromas. Kee also uses Martell VSOP to flavour the curry sauce in her curried banana fritters with assam pork belly bao.

Similarly, chef Eugenia Ong of Table at 7 employs Martell Cordon Bleu in her milky fish broth to concentrate the flavours. An infusion of Martell VSOP brings an additional element to her flambéed crepe Suzette with dark chocolate ganache.
