FilmAid Luncheon & H One

FilmAid is an international organization that uses the power of film, media and entertainment to refugee camps. “FilmAid uses the power of film and media to transcend language and literacy, bringing life-saving information, psychological relief and much-needed hope to refugees and other communities in need around the globe.” FilmAid Asia (based in Hong Kong) was launched in July of 2011. And, last week FilmAid hosted a luncheon at H One along with Fiona Kotur & Josie Ho to launch the Pearce Clutch.

Tonchon of Duck Foie Gras, Tomatoes Chutney, Aged Balsamic & Five Spiced Brioche Bread- Okay….So something strange has happened. I was never really fond of foie gras before. I would NEVER order it. But recently (due to hungry girl symptoms) I have been eating more and more foie gras. The tomato chutney was fruity, sweet, and tarty…a perfect coating over the fine foie gras. Smeared atop the light brioche bread….a delicious starter! LOVED it.

Chicken Consomme, Chicken Mousse & Shipped Chives- This was a clear broth that was light yet flavorful. A strong blend of chicken broth 🙂 Only problem was that it was served warm.

Seared Mediterranean Sea Bass, White Wine, Mussels, & Capsicum Stew- I ordered the Sea Bass, It was fine, firm, juicy, tender, and soft. Over a fun blend of tomatoes, mussels and pumpkin mix! (OH JOY! I love pumpkins). The bass itself was flavorless. But scooped in with the veggie packed tomato based blend…MMMMMM 🙂

Wagyu Beef Cheek Ravioli, Wild Rocket, Shaved Black Truffle & Light Truffle Sauce- Gavin Wiesen, the director of ‘Art of Getting By’ sat next to me and was so inspiring and helpful (offering me his plate to feature in my blog! Thanks!!!! It was great meeting and chatting with you! Enjoy your stay in HK!) This looked SOOO good. And, smelled heavenly. Everyone who ordered this…inhaled it all. :/

Dessert Surprise 😀 I like it. Surprised I was. A fruit blend, passion fruit sherbet, and brownie almond cake! I (almost) finished everything off! The brownie cake had large chunks of nuts. It was moist, crunchy and chocolate-y. Haven’t had a brownie in a while…and this definitely hit the brownie cravings! Big time 😀

Last but not least…..
