SILVER HILL DUCK COLLABORATES WITH INTERCONTINENTAL SINGAPORE

Singapore, 13 September 2023 – InterContinental Singapore’s Michelin-recommended Cantonese restaurant, Man Fu Yuan, announces an exclusive collaboration with the Irish Duck Company. Together, they present an exceptional dining experience that brings the best of Irish cuisine to Singapore. From 1 October to 15 November, three exclusive menus, each of which showcases fine Irish meats, reared in the country’s vast countryside, will be offered during lunch and dinner.
Under the visionary leadership of Executive Chef Aaron Tan, Man Fu Yuan continually strives to deliver exceptional culinary experiences. Chef Aaron’s unwavering commitment to excellence is evident in his relentless pursuit of the finest ingredients, ensuring that Man Fu Yuan patrons savour nothing but the best. From the highly acclaimed “8-Hands” collaboration with celebrated Chefs Pang Lu Tin, Fok Wing Tin, and Peter Tsang, where they reimagined classics from the 70s and 80s to this celebration of Irish produce Man Fu Yuan consistently explores innovative avenues to elevate its cuisine.

This dedication allows diners to indulge in uniquely crafted experiences that transcend the ordinary, setting Man Fu Yuan apart as a beacon of gastronomic innovation and excellence in the culinary world. With each new endeavour, Man Fu Yuan remains at the forefront of redefining the boundaries of Cantonese fine dining, guided by Chef Aaron’s unwavering dedication to culinary perfection.

Irish Duck Company, the exclusive distributor of the world-famous Silver Hill Duck in Asia, is renowned for providing the “wagyu of duck” to fine-dining establishments globally.
“In Singapore, Irish produce is relatively new and offers an exceptionally high level of quality. Ireland, known for its exceptional agricultural practices, boasts some of the world’s finest produce due to its pristine land, abundant water resources, and advanced farming techniques. The meticulous care invested in animal breeding further ensures consistently high-quality products, reflecting the company’s dedication to delivering excellence in every aspect of their offerings,” shares Joel Lim of the Irish Duck Company, highlighting the partnership’s aim to promote Irish meat and produce in the country with the support of the Irish Government.

Alongside Silver Hill Duck, the Irish Duck Company is set to introduce the exquisite John Stone Dry-Aged Beef and Hampshire Pork in Singapore, marking the very first occasion where all three of these exceptional products will grace a single menu in Singapore.

Chef Aaron Tan has crafted three meticulous set menus that will be available to mark the collaboration, each representing an opulent celebration of Irish cuisine.
“In this exciting partnership with the Irish Duck Company, I am embarking on a journey to weave the rich tapestry of premium Irish meats into the intricate fabric of traditional flavours and techniques. This collaboration offers an extraordinary opportunity to craft culinary experiences that seamlessly fuse tradition with international finest quality ingredients, offering our diners a distinctive taste of Ireland’s finest brought to life in a Cantonese way.” says Chef Aaron.
