Grand Marnier - A Different Way

One of the highlights of the Gourmet Voice Awards held in Cannes during November 2004 was the taste sensation of pairing Grand Marnier with a five-course tasting menu prepared for delegates by five awesome chefs: Jean-Jacques Daumy (President des Jeunes Restaurateurs d’Europe), Hans Stefan Steinheuer (Membre des Jeunes Restaurateurs d’Europe), Bernhard Buhlmann ((Membre des Jeunes Restaurateurs d’Europe), Marie Quatrehomme (Master Cheesemaker) and Nicholas Boussin (in charge of Marnier-Lapostolle’s Research and Gastronomy Department).

The Grand Marnier brand is known for its famous Cordon Rouge (created in 1880); others in the range have their own particular identity and distinctive characteristics. All are wonderful served neat (or on ice), or in cocktails or cooking.

The others in the range include:
Grand Marnier Cuvee Louis Alexandre: created in mamory of Louis-Alexandre Marnier Lapostolle, inventor of Cordon Rouge. This liqueur is a combination of bitter oranges and a blend of cognacs. It has a drier taste than traditional liqueurs.
Grand Marnier Cuvee du Centenaire: created in 1927 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the company. It’s an elegant, harmonious marriage of oranges and a blend of old cognacs, aged for at least two years in oak casks to allow its full finesse and balance to develop.
Grand Marnier and Grand Marnier Cuvee du Cent Cinquantenaire: created in 1977 to mark the 150th anniversary of the family business. This cuvee which was for many years reserved exclusively for the family, is available in limited quantities. The bottle is adorned with hand-finished Art Nouveau decorations. It’s a blend of citrus bigaradia oranges and find Champagne cognacs, a rich blend that is left to rest for three years in oak casks until the liqueur reaches it full aromatic complexity.

The menu:
Saddle of smoked rabbit, Brussels sprouts and chestnut salad with cranberry vinaigrette.
Scallops with curry and saffron, couscous with nuts and pumpkin seeds and carrots.
Minced duck with spicy orange marmalade.
Forty-year-old gouda with pumpernickel.
White coffee parfait, candied citrus and crunchy hazelnut cake.
