This month Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok plays host to a unique and unforgettable guest chef series
Make your reservations now, because on February 18th and 19th—and then again on February 22nd and 23rd—the prestigious Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok hotel will be presenting Culinary Greats, an incredible and dynamic guest chef series that will bring to Bangkok a star-studded line-up of leading international gastronomic talents from across Asia.
On Sunday, February 19th, enjoy a special 9-course, 4-hands lunch (priced at B6,500++), prepared by Chef Julien Royer from Odette in Singapore, and Chef Arnaud Dunand Sauthier, from the Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok’s Le Normandie restaurant, which is also the location where luncheon will be held.
Chef Julien Royer is an award-winning chef and the co-owner of Odette, a two-Michelin starred Modern French restaurant located at the National Gallery Singapore.
Odette is named in tribute to Royer’s grandmother, one of his greatest influences in life and in the kitchen, and reflects her belief in always ensuring that the fundamental pleasures of enjoying a meal are delivered in the most thoughtful, welcoming and hospitable manner. This ethos has directed every aspect of the Odette experience, harking to a new age in fine dining.
Royer has devoted years to forging lasting relationships with some of the finest boutique producers from around the globe. He takes pride in offering guests a unique opportunity to taste these exceptional ingredients at their peak in his restaurant in the heart of a city that is itself at the crossroads of the world. The result of this devotion to sourcing is an inspired effort that celebrates and respects seasonality, terroir as well as the skills of some of the world’s top boutique producers.
Prior to Odette, Royer won over diners and critics during his four-year tenure at JAAN at Swissotel the Stamford, Singapore. The restaurant received numerous accolades under Royer’s leadership, including 11th place on the Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants 2015 and 74th on the World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2015 long list. Royer was also named Chef of the Year at the World Gourmet Series Awards of Excellence 2014.
Chef Arnaud has over two decades of experience in fine dining, having worked with renowned culinary talent worldwide, including Georges Blanc in Vonnas and Marc Veyrat in L’Auberge de L’Eridan. He also spent three years at Maison Lameloise in Burgundy before venturing to Le Crillon in Paris under the leadership of Jean-Francois Piège.
Chef Arnaud is delighted to share his culinary passion, where he takes Le Normandie’s loyal diners to new heights of fine dining excellence and delights. He introduces a new generation of culinary explorers to the sophistication of his haute cuisine. For this extraordinary young talent, his passion for food is as spectacular as his zest for life. “I am a young man myself who is travelling the world in search of new experiences and gastronomy, and Le Normandie is my opportunity to share the best of my culinary journey so far with fellow travellers,” says Chef Arnaud
Renowned throughout Asia, Le Normandie is acclaimed for its imaginative French cuisine by Chef Arnaud Dunand-Sauthier. Pure and precise flavours, evidence of tastes’ combinations, the subtlety of herbs and seasonings, offer a genuine and unique experience of haute cuisine.
Noted for its splendid menu, impeccable service, elegant ambiance and superb river views, Le Normandie offers to our distinguished guests – from Thailand and all over the world – an exceptional fine-dining experience.
