This will be one fancy dinner.
On Oct 21, Dutch culinary genius Henk Savelberg has an exclusive one-night-only dining experience lined up.
Dining with the Stars By Savelberg will see six chefs from Michelin-starred restaurants in the Netherlands team up for a six-course dinner. These include Andre Van Doorn, whose experience spans working as head-chef for the Dutch Royal Household before becoming patron cuisinier at Heemstede Castle in Houten, which gained a Michelin star within a year of him joining. Also on the line-up is Jos Grootscholten, who cut his teeth at Noma before becoming patron cuisinier of Perceel in Capelle aan den IJssel, which gained a Michelin star within a year and a half of him joining. For full line-up, see the website.
Each chef will meticulously craft one dish—a peek at the menu includes hamachi fish and eel with an elegant note of dill and yogurt; the unusual yet surprisingly harmonious combination of scallop and veal cheeks in beurre rouge (butter and red wine) sauce, and refreshing Irish coffee martinis. Each meal is paired with wine, and priced at B9,999++ per person, or B8,999 for early birds (beginning Sep 21) .
Savelberg is no stranger to Michelin, earning his first star in 1982, and several more in Europe before moving to Bangkok. Savelberg Thailand earned him another Michelin title—making him the first Dutch chef with five Michelin stars in a row. He is also one of the founders of the exclusive Dutch Les Patrons Cuisiniers Association.
