Singapore has had its fair share of revered Michelin-starred restaurants setting up outposts here, but ever since we got our own Michelin guide last year, it seems like that’s all anybody talks about when it comes to food these days. While dining at some of these establishments mean booking weeks in advance or joining a long queue of people, the food served is almost always worth it. Now with that in mind, imagine when a couple of renowned chefs come together for one good cause. That’s exactly what’s going to happen on May 18.
In conjunction with this year’s Voilah! French Festival, Disciples Escoffier Asia will be hosting their first Singapore Epicurean Dinner with Wine Pairing to help Singapore’s less-privileged students realize their dreams by offering them culinary education and opportunities on their road to becoming a chef. This culinary affair will see the likes of chefs Michael Michaelidis (Joel Robuchon), Kirk Westaway (Jaan), Masakazu Ishibashi (Shoukouwa), Emmanuel Stroobant (Saint Pierre), Laurent Brouard (Bistro du Vin), Jonathan Allaert (also from Saint Pierre) and Felicien Cueff (Home Chef) coming together to prepare a special six-course dinner at Oneº15 Marina for one night only.
Some of the dishes being served are imperial caviar with crustaceans’ jelly and cauliflower smoothness, hay smoked buri, ohba leaf, myoga, shoyu and red vinegar yamagata rice, and coconut water jelly with lemon granite (the main course is created by 2017’s Disciples Escoffier Young Talent Escoffier). To end the night, they’ll be holding a special charity auction where part of the proceeds will go to less privileged students.
