La Dame de Pic London Launches “The Coconut” at Four Seasons Hotel London at Ten Trinity Square

 Thursday, November 11, 2021 


This winter, La Dame de Pic London, the two Michelin-starred restaurant by world renowned Anne-Sophie Pic located at Four Seasons Hotel London at Ten Trinity Square, brings a unique signature dish by Anne-Sophie, “The Coconut” to its menu. First served in the three Michelin-starred Maison Pic and then made famous on French TV show Top Chef, Anne-Sophie is transporting her dish across the channel, to be available at La Dame de Pic London for the very first time this month.

Inspired by a trip to Mauritius, The Coconut embraces the transformation the tree fruit goes through during its different stages of maturity. When young and fresh, the pulp takes the form of coconut water, yet once matured, forms a dense flesh with a bright white colour. Anne-Sophie’s famed dish focuses on the middle of these two stages and features a hand-shelled coconut, meticulously carved to ensure the white pulp remains perfectly smooth on the outside and filled with its natural coconut water. The coconut is then carefully opened and a hand-dived Scottish scallop is placed inside, along with freshly shaved white Alba truffle. Once sealed again, the scallop is steamed using the inner coconut water and infused by the truffle.

The steaming technique Anne-Sophie uses is called imprégnation, a form of culinary art that creates metamorphosis by deeply blending ingredients to reveal a rich new flavour. In this case, the coconut water wraps the scallop in its aroma, the iodine in the scallops then nourishes the water and allows a very subtle exchange of flavour. This process, brought into the kitchen by Anne-Sophie herself, is a huge innovation in the culinary world, as it has the ability to create a whole new third aroma.

The Coconut will be priced at EGP 118 and available at La Dame de Pic London at Four Seasons Hotel London at Ten Trinity Square from November 17, 2021 until the end of the white truffle season. The Coconut must be ordered in advance due to limited availability.
