Pear & Carrot is striking a chord at this year’s World Cultures Festival by providing a palatable Nordic experience for guests at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre.

As a company that celebrates cross-cultural collaborations, especially between Hong Kong and the Nordics, Pear & Carrot is proud to support the World Cultures Festival, with this year’s theme on “The Nordics”, which showcases a range of Nordic art and cultural performances here in Hong Kong.

Pear & Carrot provided catering service at the Festival Opening Programme, “Autumn Sonata” on 18 October with Rye House and received much praises for the selection of Nordic drinks and freshly prepared delights, including Scandinavian devilled eggs, smoked reindeer carpaccio, and Karelian pastries.

The highlight of the evening further impressed the guests, which saw the cooking demonstration of the signature Swedish sandwich cake, made with freshly air-flown Swedish ingredients such as smoked salmon, prawns and caviar.

Pear & Carrot will continue to serve up delectable refreshments at the “Nordic Café” Chamber concert events on 22-27 October, also to be held at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre.
