If you’re looking for a unique and delicious way to spend an afternoon in Singapore, you’ll want to try the upcoming Claude Monet-inspired afternoon tea at ANTI:DOTE in Fairmont Singapore. 

The limited afternoon tea service, a collaboration between the cocktail bar, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA), and art licensor ARTiSTORY, is crafted by Executive Pastry Chef Yong Ming Choong and Senior Sous Chef Jacky Lai.

“Following the overwhelming success of the previous two installments earlier this year – Vincent van Gogh afternoon tea and Hokusai high tea, we are thrilled to embark on another artistic collaboration, this time celebrating Claude Monet. Chef Ming and his talented pastry chefs, some of whom are part of Singapore’s national team, together with Chef Jacky have imbued the same amount of passion and precision into creating each dish, as Monet did with his artwork,” said William J. Haandrikman, Managing Director of Fairmont Singapore and Swissôtel The Stamford.

The bar’s afternoon tea menu for September is inspired by Claude Monet, the French impressionist painter who captured the beauty of nature with his brushstrokes. The menu includes a variety of sandwiches, pastries, and desserts that reflect Monet’s style and palette. You can enjoy dishes such as the tomato Concasse, kalamata olive and olive caviar sandwich, reminiscent of the vibrant reds and greens in Field of Poppies Near Giverny; Boston lobster and avruga caviar on a saffron brioche, paying tribute to Le Grand Canal, where Monet draws the viewer onto the water; and smoked trout, dill-infused cream cheese, and kristal caviar, conveying the lush, serene landscapes in Meadow with Haystacks Near Giverny.

For dessert, you’ll be treated to Pistachio Mascarpone Cream and cherry compote for a symphony of textures and colors; Raspberry Cream Cheese Macaron for a precise mastery of sweetness and tanginess; Monet Hazelnut Cocoa Bonbon with tantalizing nutty and chocolate notes, and more.

Those who can still fit in some bite-sized goodness may opt to add two amuse bouches that offer a sensorial adventure, namely the cured scallop with white ponzu and sudachi on a crisp rice cracker, inspired by Meadow at Giverny; and barbecued carrot and candied orange gel in a spring roll shell, inspired by Water Lilies.

Included in the beverages menu are the Unstoppable Bloom, an earthy libation featuring yam shochu, elderflower, coffee, sesame and homemade smoky honey miso; and The Farandole, a refreshing drink with shiso gin, yuzu, lychee, lotus root and honey beer.

The Claude Monet-inspired afternoon tea runs from Sept. 1-30, priced at S$68++ per guest, S$75++ with the addition of one amuse bouche, and S$85++ for both. Prices are inclusive of a choice of one alcoholic or two non-alcoholic beverages from the Claude Monet Afternoon Tea menu. An option to further elevate the experience with free-flow tipples for two hours is available from S$75++ per guest for Henriot Brut or S$90++ per guest for Moët & Chandon Rosé Impérial. A children’s menu is also available at S$40++.
