Cheek by Jowl 12th - 23rd June 2018

Cheek by Jowl

12th - 23rd June 2018

Opened in early 2016 and awarded a Michelin star just eighteen months later, Cheek by Jowl (a reference to the close working relationship of husband and wife team, Rishi Naleendra and Manuela Toniolo) is a Modern Australian restaurant in Singapore’s Telok Ayer neighbourhood where hints of various culinary cultures come together on the same plate with electrifying results. Born and raised in Sri Lanka, Rishi moved to Australia to study architecture, but one transformative taste of chicken liver parfait at a local Melbourne café changed everything and proved to be the catalyst for a distinguished career in the kitchens of some of Australia’s most renowned restaurants (Taxi Dining Room, Tetsuya’s and Yellow). These days, dishes like his raw beef salad of dry-aged Wagyu, maple butter, Brussels sprouts and macadamia reflect Rishi’s diverse and distinctive style, while Manuela’s pairings of organic and biodynamic wines highlight the couple’s beliefs in sustainability and naturalism.

Nurdin Topham

26th - 30th June 2018

“With absolutely flawless cooking, [he] produces food that’s sensationally robust without being the least bit rich. It’s almost oxymoronic, packing a light wallop, with a clearness and purity of effect that I’ve seldom encountered” (NY Times). Nurdin Topham’s unique style of ‘nourishing gastronomy’ earned his ground-breaking Hong Kong project, NUR, widespread critical acclaim and a Michelin star. Before that, he spent the best part of two decades in award-winning kitchens around Europe, including five years as Raymond Blanc’s personal development chef at Le Manoir. Nurdin closed NUR in late 2016, returning home to begin an exciting new chapter rooted in British seasonality and the ambitious fermentation techniques he practiced at the Nordic Food Lab. As you’re about to find out, the results of eighteen months of intensive R&D are as unprecedented as they are delicious. Genuinely unmissable.

Palmiro Ocampo

10th - 21st July 2018

Rising star of Lima's relentlessly imaginative culinary scene, Palmiro is a man on a mission. His CV includes all the goodies (Noma, Geranium, el Celler de Can Roca, Mugaritz, Atelier de Joël Robuchon), but it’s his activism and commitment to the fight against food waste that sets him apart from his peers. His ambition is to eliminate extreme hunger in Peru by 2030, partnering with the UN World Food Programme and the World Wildlife Fund to champion a zero-waste approach to culinary recycling. In the kitchen, Palmiro uses techniques developed at the Nordic Food Lab to create innovative dishes such as “Rescued Lemon,” a composition of confited lemon skins filled with yucca ice cream that's made from the leftovers of Peru’s most popular culinary exports, ceviche and pisco sours. Genius? We think so.

Le Comptoir à Manger 5th - 9th June 2018

Le Comptoir à Manger

5th - 9th June 2018

“Nature calls the shots, for us and for you”. The chalkboard at the entrance of Le Comptoir à Manger tells you everything you need to know about Carole Eckert and Bérangère Pellissard’s minuscule but utterly delightful Strasbourg neo-bistro. Tucked away on a side street in the city centre, the two-woman operation is a shrine to seasonal Alsatian produce (not that kind of Alsatian). So committed are the duo to keeping it regional that they’ve banned olive oil and black pepper in favour of local aromatic herbs and spices. While Carole keeps the guests entertained front of house, pouring carefully chosen wines, Bérangère - who cut her teeth at 3* Auberge de l'Ill and 2* Le Manoir aux Quat' Saisons - produces miraculous dishes from the tiny kitchen. The whole thing is completely charming and out-of-this-world delicious. Come!
