One&Only Cape Town offers the Louis XIII Gourmand experience at Nobu

May 2, 2018: Nobu Cape Town at One&Only is hosting a luxurious dinner in partnership with the exclusive Louis XIII. The bespoke experience masterfully blends the unique tasting profile of Louis XIII cognac with the delectable flavours Nobu is renowned for world over.

Louis XIII at Nobu Cape Town

This five-course paired, gourmand experience has been masterfully curated by Nobu Chef de Cuisine, Hervé Curtot and Louis XIII Private Client Director Jörg Pfützner. 

The LOUIS XIII dinner at Nobu has been designed to elevate both the cognac and the flavours of Nobu’s cuisine. Picture Louis XIII with scallop with foie gras, vanilla miso and a balsamic reduction, followed by the langoustine with caviar, gomma dressing and crispy shitake. Louis XIII’s decadence is embodied by New York-style black cod, yuzu miso with kataifi. The fourth course, the Epitome, is rounded off by a Chilean sea bass with dashi Ponzu before finishing the evening with the Elevation course of slow-cooked Wagyu flambé and truffle rice.

Louis XIII thinks a century ahead; each decanter is the life achievement of generations of cellar masters. It is a blend of up to 1,200 eaux-de-vie sourced 100% from Grande Champagne, the first cru of the Cognac region and features exceptional aromas evoking myrrh, honey, dried roses, plum, honeysuckle, cigar box, leather, figs and passion fruit. World-class master chef Nobuyuki ‘Nobu’ Matsuhisa’s empire spans the globe with its classical Japanese cuisine with a contemporary twist.

The Louis XIII and Nobu Gourmand Experience is available for bookings for parties of six from next week onwards. A lighter version of the experience is also available for couples. For reservations or more information, visit
