Renowned Spanish chef comes to Bangkok for two nights only
For nearly two decades, Chef Andoni Luis Aduriz has been the creative force behind the marvelous foodie mecca known as Mugaritz. The restaurant, located in the hills outside of San Sebastian—in Spain’s Basque Country—holds two Michelin stars and is currently number nine on the prestigious World’s 50 Best Restaurants list. Among his other accolades Chef Andoni has twice received the coveted ‘Chef’s Choice Award’, bestowed upon him in 2006 and 2012 by fellow World’s 50 Best chefs.
Chef Andoni’s early culinary career included work at no less than Catalonia’s legendary El Bulli, the long-time home of Chef Ferran Adrià. In the years since, along with establishing Mugaritz he’s also authored or contributed to more than 20 books on cookery. The capricious chef employs a “tech no-emotional” approach—as he calls it—to his cuisine, and uses advanced food technologies to not only produce novel dining pleasure, but likewise to evoke an emotional effect for all guests, ensuring a great experience and complete enjoyment of his gastronomy.
This month, for the first time ever, Chef Andoni brings his culinary creativity to Bangkok for two nights only— December 8th and 9th—for a series of dinners hosted by acclaimed Chef Fatih Tutak, Director of Culinary at The House on Sathorn (W Bangkok, 106 North Sathorn Rd). The elaborate 13-course dinners will begin at 7:30pm and are priced at B11,500++ per person (add B2,500++ per person for the carefully curated wine pairing package).
Over the course of the two evenings ‘The Master of Mugaritz’ will be preparing his sometimes mysteriously and whimsically named dishes, including such favourites as: Iberico Ham 2 Montaneras Arturo Sanchez with Acorns and Oaktree Leaves; An Oyster’s Frozen Kiss; 100% Lobster; A Few Minutes for Recreation… The Game at the Table; Egg Yolks Tucked in with a Sea Urchin Blanket; and Whiskey Pie.
Chef Fatih, meanwhile, will be on hand bringing his own expertise to the proceedings. He arrived at The House on Sathorn after creating a unique dining experience at The Bellbrook Hong Kong, recognized by the Hong Kong-Macau Michelin Guide 2015. Other stints include the world-renowned restaurant NOMA in Copenhagen, and the 3-Michelin-starred Nihonryori Ryugin in Tokyo. More recently, under his watchful eye, The Dining Room at The House on Sathorn was ranked as one of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants (2017).
Very limited seats are available for this event, and full prepayment is required. The dinners are being co-presented by the S.Pellegrino & Acqua Panna Fine Dining Lovers guest chef series, The House on Sathorn, Turkish Airlines, and Mugaritz restaurant.
