Each year, the House of Krug honours a single ingredient to illustrate its savoir faire and invites renowned Krug Ambassade Chefs to create food pairings with the latest édition of Krug Grande Cuvée or Krug Rosé
Puckered up, nose wrinkled and eyes squinted—it’s an unconscious facial expression most people make when they taste lemon. Perhaps there wasn’t enough sugar in the lemon juice or the lemon sorbet, but, it could also be that they’ve yet to try the Krug Ambassade Chefs’ lemon-incorporated food pairings.
Each year, the House of Krug honours a single ingredient to illustrate its savoir faire and invites renowned Krug Ambassade Chefs to create food pairings with the latest édition of Krug Grande Cuvée or Krug Rosé. Unlike previous years, 2023 is the first to celebrate a fruit: the lemon. Bringing tension to food pairings, the lemon’s vibrant acidity is a flavour enhancement skillfully balanced out to complement the latest Krug Grande Cuvée 171st edition and Krug Rosé 27th edition.
Until October, Krug Ambassades La Dame de Pic, Zén, Hashida and Jaan will showcase lemon-based dishes in their respective establishments that will compel you to give a chef’s kiss.
Celebrate the lemon at these places
Zén showcases the uplifting power of lemon, infusing its bright acidity and high-toned aromatics with an elegant lobster dish. Named Sunshine by the Sea, Zén offers more than just eye power over this dish till 18 August 2023.
La Dame de Pic highlights the citrusy notes of the lemon through a unique John Dory dish with cardamom leaves and Seashell Nasturtium Ravioli topped with Cedrat & Lovage Beurre Blanc.

Diners ordering Krug x Lemon dishes at these restaurants will receive The Zest is Yet to Come, a collective cookbook featuring recipes from over 100 world-renowned Krug Ambassade Chefs. It’s fastest fingers first for this limited-edition cookbook and believe it or not, it’s never too much lemon, because when life gives you lemons, you put it in everything.
