Bringing Michelin starred quality to homes across the UK

 

Enjoy Hakkasan Michelin starred greatness with this cook-at-home feast.

 

Following a successful London launch, Hakkasan (Mayfair and Hanway Place) is delighted to announce that Occasions by Hakkasan, which sees their signature Michelin-starred dishes translated into a cook-at-home feast, is now available for delivery nationwide, complete with delicious new dishes to choose from. 

We were absolutley thrilled to receive our order. Packaged in a beautifully designed keepsake box, complete with chopsticks, incense and a reusable bamboo steamer, the Occasions by Hakkasan signature box looks absolutely delightful. And that was just the start!

Hakkasan’s classic Cantonese dishes had arrived to be recreated at home and our mouths were watering just from reading the menu cards! The boxes serve two people, and are perfect for both those looking to feast at home or to send as a gift to a loved one.

The dishes are individually packaged and delivered complete - each dish comes with a glossy recipe card and easily followed intructions and every food item and accompaniment is numbered for ease.  We loved the cute dim sum basket and Hakkasan chopsticks.

Our order included a selection of some of their most popular Dim Sum - langoustine har gau with Prunier caviar, halibut shui mai with water chesnut, king crab with peppercorn sauce and wild mushroom. You simply pop the dim sum in the steamer and place onto a pan of boiling water and six minutes later it's ready! The Prunier caviar comes in a tiny jar that you just spread on top of the dim sum. I couldn't tell you which one was my favourite, they all tasted spectacular. 

So we had no choice but to swiftly finish these off before we started cooking the mains. We really enjoyed the spicy prawns with almond, which was creamy and warmly spiced and prepared in less than 4 minutes. Alongside this we had the Tofu, Aubergine and Japanese mushroom claypot. Usually I would be hesitant about Tofu and Aubergine but this was a fantastic dish enhanced with a tangy sauce.

The accompaniments were a lovely dish of Stir-fried baby broccoli and preserved olive which was terribly more-ish and their renowned Hakka noodles. 

We waited half an hour before preparing dessert - the delighful Hakkasan Chocolate and Hibiscus soufflé! Simply pop in the oven for 9 an a half minutes, then decorate with a gold chocolate ring and dried raspberries.  Luxurious, rich and indulgent, just take a mouthful and savour every morsel!

Approaching its 20th anniversary, Hakkasan has become renowned for its modern take on authentic Cantonese cuisine, with a focus on using the finest, meticulously sourced ingredients. Occasions by Hakkasan allows the restaurant experience, complete with touches from the restaurant itself, to be expertly recreated within homes nationwide. 

The attention to detail is fantastic -  you even get the Hakkasan incense and a link to a specially curated Sounds of Hakkasan playlist. 

The Occasions by Hakkasan box costs £175 for 2 people. Orders can be made via https://hakkasan.com/mayfair/occasions-by-hakkasan/, with deliveries available on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
