Fire and water, earth and sky, cheese and charcuterie – in life, it’s all about preserving the balance. One simply cannot do without the other, and together is when we are able to savour the best experiences of life. And one of these finer experiences comes in the form of a new series at Ginett Singapore – Uncorked: A Food & Wine Pairing Series in Singapore.
To be held on the last Tuesday of every month, guests are invited to explore a curation of French wines led by F&B Operations Manager Alla Boldyreva, along with a special food pairing menu created by Executive Chef Joan Octavi.
This food and wine pairing menu will be switched on a monthly basis, showcasing different dishes and French wines by the region so there is always something to look forward to when you are after a food and wine pairing in Singapore.
Meet Your Hosts
Executive Chef Joan Octavi
With over ten years of experience under his belt, Chef Joan Octavi Llucià Bonel has brought his passion for the culinary arts across kitchens all over the world – from Spain and Dubai, to Andorra and right here at Ginett Restaurant & Wine Bar Singapore.
To the Uncorked: Food & Wine Pairing Series experience, he combines his honed techniques and the deep understanding of local ingredients over the past several years, plating up delectable creations that were made to perfectly complement our selection of wines.
“ At Ginett, it has always been our aim to be an in-vogue escape that offers something for everyone. Be it a quick, affordable and easy set lunch fix or a hearty charcoal selection for dinner.
We are very excited to launch Uncorked: A Food & Wine Pairing in Singapore monthly series to show the versatility of our team as well as to provide our guests, regular and new alike, with an out-of-the-norm experience at Ginett.”– Chef Octavi, Executive Chef
F&B Operations Manager Alla Boldyreva
Charming, inclusive, and inherently curious, Alla Boldyreva has dedicated her life to the hospitality industry since the spirited age of 21. She has spent years fuelling her passion and developing her skills, eventually receiving the Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET) Certification in 2018.
Unmatched in her appreciation for French cuisine and wines, with her penchant to roam the service floor to extend her help and influence – there’s no better F&B enthusiast to lead Ginett’s Uncorked: Food & Wine Pairing Series in the wine tasting masterclass throughout dinner.
“ We realised that there’s a growing interest and appreciation amongst our guests and public alike on wines.
As such, we decided to turn this into an opportunity to curate a food and wine pairing series where attendees can learn about how to taste wines, the different types of wines and the ideal wine pairing. At the same time, giving them a chance to indulge in a delicious 5-course pairing dinner specially prepared by Chef.”– Alla, Operations Manager
