Asian Inspiration At The Royal Academy

Peyton Events have announced a unique partnership with China Tang to celebrate the Ai Weiwei exhibition at the Royal Academy from 19 September 2015.

Exclusively until December 2015, the Fine Rooms and Keeper’s House at the Royal Academy are available for events and private dinners with a bespoke menu from China Tang. 

Offering some of the best and most authentic Cantonese cooking outside of China, the menus don’t compromise on classic recipes. From a live Wok station with Ho Fun beef and sweet and sour pork to a Peking duck carving station, each dish will be made using the freshest ingredients, traditional spices and natural flavours.

Hidden below the galleries of the Royal Academy the prestigious Keeper’s House restaurant includes a opulent private dining room and is available for exclusive parties this autumn. Indulge in East Asian canapés such as Scallop dumplings and steamed Cha siu bao before settling into dinner with dishes such as Ho Fun with beef in black bean sauce and a delicious selection of dim sum. The expert barmen have worked on a sophisticated selection of Asian cocktails: expect classics such as a Singapore Sling and Mai Tai as well as Peyton and Byrne’s very own Ai Weiwei cocktail incorporating rum and lychee flavours.

The Peyton Events team have also partnered with expert tea blenders Chash Tea to host traditional Tea Ceremonies during the Ai Weiwei exhibition.
