Krug launches the 2019 single ingredient Krug X Pepper, an unconventional and surprising food pairing and the fifth single ingredient to be celebrated at Krug. The Krug X Pepper promotion will take place in July and August and in three restaurants, The GreenHouse, Rosa Madre and Monty’s of Kathmandu, who will  specially create a dish to pair with a glass of Krug Grande Cuvée.

 At The Greenhouse (Dawson Street, Dublin) chef Mickael Viljanen will offer hand dived scallops with frozen oyster, elderflower & jalapeño pepper, caviar, paired perfectly with a glass of Krug Grande Cuvee. Available throughout the day the Single Ingredient Krug X Pepper dish is included in the set four or six course menu, with a glass of Krug Grande Cuvee costing €65 plus set menu price.

 Monty’s of Kathmandu (Temple Bar, Dublin) has created two dishes which both beautifully complement Krug’s single ingredient, the pepper. Guests can opt for Monkfish and Pepper Sashlick, medium spiced barbecued monkfish with mixed peppers, or Jumbo Prawn Tareko, pan fried medium spiced barbecued jumbo prawns and mixed peppers. Both dishes are served with a glass of Krug Grande Cuvee and cost €68 and €69 respectively.

 At Rosa Madre (Temple Bar, Dublin) guests can enjoy anchovies marinated with red & yellow peppers & croutons, with burrata made with milk and topped with sweet paprika and toasted pine nuts on the side. Paired with a glass of Krug Grande Cuvee for €45.

 Krug X Pepper Single Ingredient dishes will be available in the restaurants listed above from now until the end of August.
