That's Shanghai takes a look at some of the best upcoming F&B events:

Apr 24: Orange/Skin Contact Wine

Made by allowing the grape skins to mix with the juice during the fermentation process, skin-contact imparts more than a bronze colour to the wine. The presence of additional tannins give the wine a unique body and texture, which some would say yields a richer experience than white wine. Try for yourself at Blackbird this Wednesday, and perhaps it will become your next drink of choice.

Apr 24, 6-8pm, RMB190. Blackbird, see event listing

Apr 24: Speak Low x Employees Only

Chef Henry Kuei (formerly of 5 Spice in Mumbai) is joining the Bird bar and kitchen for an evening of Indian-Chinese cooking. The unlikely fusion, first developed by Hakka Chinese living in Mumbai, is abundant in spices unusual in Chinese cooking (besides Xinjiang cuisine) such as cumin and turmeric, yet the presence of Chinese culinary heritage is also evident. 

May 1, seatings from 5.30pm. Bird, see event listing

May 1: Eggdogs Pop-up

An April Fool's joke gone too far or done just right? Either way, due to the wildly popular reception of Egg's announcement on April 1 that they would begin serving Eggdogs for real at a pop-up on May 1. Some might say it should never have been let out of the lab. Perhaps. But now that it's on the loose, you better be prepared.

May 1, 3-9pm. Egg, see event listing

May 2: Egg Chef's Table x Simone Thompson

Chef Simone is back in Shanghai for her celebrated pop-up at EGG and this time the theme is slow food. That means time has been taken in the preparation – whether cured, marinated, pickled, fermented, braised or confited. As you take some time out from the busy lifestyle of Shanghai to enjoy dinner, remember to gently savor some of the culinary highlights, which include slow-cooked lamb shoulder with fermented chilies and fennel and 24-hour chicken curry with pickled chilies.

May 2, 8pm, RMB288. Egg, see event listing

Until May 4: Shanghai Disney's International Food and Drinks Fest 2019

The international brand bar-none is for the first time hosting a celebration of world cuisine between April and May this year. Enjoy cooking classes, tasting extravaganzas and festival events on offer throughout Disneytown. Purchase a ‘Sip and Savour’ pass to entitle yourself to admission, two drink items and three food items.

Until May 4, all day. Shanghai Disney, see event listing.

May 1-31: Rum Hunt | The Grove's Fascination

Flyer courtesy of Grand Hyatt, Shanghai

The Grove distillery was originally set up as a wine estate until the two fraternal founders realised that Western Australia had the perfect climate for producing rum, their most-loved tipple. Focusing on small-batch production over quantity, the quality of their spirits is surely discernible in Cloud 9’s aromatic cocktails, only RMB88 for the whole of May.

May 1-31, 5-11pm, from RMB88. Cloud 9, see event listing
