Hong Kong SAR, China, 30 March 2020 – From now to 20 June 2020, Popinjays joins hands with international sculptor Richard X. Zawitz to present Infini-Tea, a limited-time afternoon tea inspired by Richard’s world-renowned Infinity sculpture collection.
Signified by curves and bulbous shapes, the Infinity collection is a reflection of life – a journey that is never a straight line. From monumental sculptures to a lauded debut in the fashion world, and the highly anticipated launch of Infini-Tea at Popinjays, the signature Infinity collection of Richard has proven to be of infinite versatility.
An innovative plunge into the dining scene, Infini-Tea at Popinjays delivers the multiplied pleasures of gourmet food and art viewing as some key iconic pieces from the Infinity sculpture collection, including Alien DNA – Red Bump Series X-1, Alpha Infinity Seat Sculpture and Infinity X482, will be showcased in the restaurant.
For the very first afternoon tea menu since his appointment as Chef de Cuisine, talented Chef Alexandre Viriot presents equally delightful gastronomic art to pair with Richard’s fine works. Comprising the menu is an enticing assortment of sweet and savoury treats in vivid colours to extrude the flamboyant flair of Popinjays. Of special note is Foie Gras Confit with Brioche Toast – the flavourful and creamy foie gras is served on a buttery brioche where the tanginess of green apple dices tones down the richness for a perfect balance on the palate. The ever-popular complementary dessert ingredients, mango and coconut milk always come in pairs; Chef Alexandre adds an exciting twist to the Mango and Coconut Cake with the velvety orange flavour of Grand Marnier. Chocolate lovers should not miss the Dulcey Chocolate Cake with Sea Salt Caramel; the smooth and warm chocolate carries hints of toasted shortbread and is elevated with a touch of sea salt.
Guests will also receive a set of Tangle Plaything, Richard’s miniature works of art, during the collaboration.
