Earlier last month, we had the privilege to hang out with Celebrity IronChef, Cat Cora. She was in town for a week, and we were really stoked to host her. One of our lucky readers also won the chance to dine at the stunning Ocean Restaurant by Cat Cora at Resorts World Sentosa.
Together, we spent the evening sampling her new dishes, and the experience of dining at Ocean Restaurant by Cat Cora is like no other. Few restaurants in the world have the opportunity to boast about being part of an aquarium, and Ocean Restaurant by Cat Cora is one of them.
Dinner was great. We had a ball of a time together. And Chef Catherine is the sweetest lady.
In conjunction with Father’s Day, our readers were tasked to share their fathers’ favourite fruits with us, and the lucky winner (picked at random) will win a dinner for four at Ocean Restaurant by Cat Cora. Together, we sampled Chef Catherine’s new creations, and the cherry on top was the special dessert that Chef Catherine prepared using Dad’s favourite fruit. Pineapple and banana it was; very tropical, very local-like.
Having a meal at a Joël Robuchon Restaurant is not just about the food; it is about the overall dining experience right from the moment you step in to the restaurant.
When Joël Robuchon was in Singapore back in December, we met up with him for an exclusive session to get an insight, as well as to experience the magic in the restaurant’s kitchen - the sacred ground of haute cuisine. It was an unforgettable afternoon – to interact with the humble man, and to catch glimpses of his talented team at work.
Most people have the misconception that it is expensive to dine at a Joël Robuchon’s establishment. However, that is not necessarily the case. Joël Robuchon Restaurant and L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon at Resorts World Sentosa have just launched its new weekend set lunches and the prices are super reasonable for the quality of food you will be getting, and the luxe dining experience.
Chef Marco Pierre White is a legend in the food & beverage industry. He is the godfather of British haute cuisine, and many chefs have trained under him, including Gordon Ramsay. He was also the youngest chef ever to have been awarded three Michelin stars.
Besides his restaurant empire, he is also the brand ambassador for Knorr (by Unilever Food Solutions), which is known for its stock cubes.
Chef Marco Pierre White was in town for a series of Knorr-related culinary activities, and I had the chance to catch up with him. Here’s an extract from the interview:
I can’t think of other ways to say this, so I shall go straight to the point: Salt Grill & Sky Bar at Ion Orchard is a very sexy restaurant. It is the place to go if you want to impress your date, or celebrate a special occasion with your loved ones.
Perched at the top of Ion Orchard, Salt Grill Restaurant by Luke Mangan is all about the complete dining experience. From the journey through the mysterious lift to the amazing view when you step inside the restaurant – there is only one word to describe it – wow(!!)
Chef Mario Batali’s first foray into the Singapore food scene is with the opening of Osteria Mozza & Pizzeria Mozza at Marina Bay Sands.
Pizzeria Mozza is probably the most affordable option amongst the Marina Bay Sands celebrity chefs’ restaurants. The pizzas on Pizzeria Mozza’s menu are priced between $18 to $38. I’d think this is extremely good value given that most of the pizza restaurants in Singapore charge around the same price for a pizza.
The Marina Bay Sands Celebrity Chefs’ Press Conference was quite an experience. We had a glimpse of the chefs and their team in action. In many ways, it was like a sneak preview of the greatness to come. I call this – the Celebrity chefs experience in bite size.
