Champagne house Krug has collaborated with award-winning chef Gabriel Kreuther, famed for his eponymous two-Michelin-starred New York restaurant, to invite you to experience a taste of haute cuisine at home in the form of their inventive Gabriel Kreuther x Krug Single Ingredient meal kit.
Launched to mark Krug Champagne’s sixth annual Single Ingredient Program – a celebration of the individuality of a sole humble ingredient – the kit sees Kreuther pay a unique and playful tribute this year’s star, the onion, with his elevated version of the classic French dish, coq au vin. But in true Krug style, the red wine has been substituted for champagne, creating the delectable Coq au Champagne.
The recipe has been specially ensembled to pair with Krug Grande Cuvée, and the meal kit will give those in New York and the surrounding area a chance to construct the dish and enjoy the complementary pairing from the comfort of their own kitchen.
