Pelham’s doesn’t offer a cheese course on its standard menu. However, if you’d like one, you can arrange for one ahead of time with Max Chong, the restaurant’s maìtre d’ and sommelier. Though beloved by Shanghai’s expats, cheese is not popular in China and only makes its appearance on Pelham’s menu in the form of garnishes (we love the risotto primavera with peas, asparagus, pesto and Parmesan crisps). When executive chef Clément Pellerin joined the Pelham’s team earlier this year, he introduced tasting menus, which are available in four, five, six and 12 courses. Off the tasting menu’s dessert section, diners can order the grapes dish that comes with blue cheese, walnuts, honey and truffle crisp.
