I still remember the first time I learnt about one of the greatest painters in art history. I was only in primary school when our art teacher told us about the story of Vincent Van Gogh and showed us the iconic paintings that he produced all while battling the haunting monsters in his mind. I’m pretty sure many of these pieces require no introduction, like the famous Starry Night (which was actually the view from Van Gogh’s window from the asylum), as well as Sunflowers.
Not only are the paintings very visually appealing, they’re also quite intriguing to learn about — which is why there are so many Van Gogh-inspired experiences, including the recent immersive Van Gogh exhibition that came to Singapore.
And now, you can even turn your experience with these masterpieces into a gastronomic experience with the Season of Impressionists afternoon tea at Anti:dote located in Fairmont Singapore.
From 3 March to 2 April 2023, indulge in a themed afternoon tea session inspired by Vincent Van Gogh’s Sunflowers painting. This will be the first instalment of a series of art-inspired afternoon tea experiences.
Prices begin at S$58++ per pax, and you can look forward to an array of intricately-made treats with stunning yellow accents.
Start off with some flavourful savoury bites like the Duck Rilette served with lemon blinis and mustard seeds, Smoked Salmon Sandwich with blueberry creme fraiche on a saffron brioche, Sous Vide Lobster with lemon confit and sunflower seed bread (this one’s going to be a crowd favourite!) and more.
For those who want to dive right into the sweet stuff, there’s the decadent sweets like the Sunflower Financier topped off with a layer of raspberry mascarpone, Ivory Namelaka (creamy) Bonbon, Macarons and so on.
That’s not all — there are also some specially crafted drinks to help you wash everything down! Enjoy a nice glass of Colourful Yellow (S$22++), a boozy yellow cocktail inspired by the artpiece concocted with white rum, yellow Chartreuse and toasted sunflower seeds infused with elderflower liqueur and fruits.
If you’re not feeling for an alcoholic drink, order the Bulb Fields (S$17++) mocktail made with roasted sunflower seeds, Seedlip spice, elderflower cordial, a variety of yellow fruits, tangy lemon juice and refreshing chamomile tea.
