That’s right, the next Cross Cultures event spotlights Indian cuisine by way of the #1 restaurant in Asia… GAGGAN!!! It will be chef Gaggan Anand and his team of four’s first visit to the Philippines, and while they will be bringing their signature dishes, they are going to create experimental dishes with our local produce with the Gallery Vask team for one night only on October 6, 2015, Tuesday, for 50 lucky patrons! It is P7,900+ service charge, inclusive of champagnes.
Apart from his restaurant being the best in Asia and #10 in the world, it’s admirable how Gaggan is shining the light on his native Indian cuisine, more specifically the street food of his hometown in Kolkata—and that it can be had not just as comfort food, but also as fine food. This is the same thing that chef J. Luis “Chele” Gonzalez is doing with Filipino cuisine at Gallery Vask. Both Indian and Filipino cuisines are not necessarily top of mind whenever people think of Asian cuisine, so it’s great that these two chefs are advocating them onto the world stage.
The dinner will be paired with champagnes from Veuve Clicquot, the official champagne partner of the World’s 50 Best and Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants. Guests can expect to begin with Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label NV, before progressing to the Vintage Blanc 2004 and Vintage Rose 2004.
There will be a media-exclusive event the day before on October 5, 2015 at the Gaggenau kitchen. Gaggan is the brand’s chef partner in Thailand and culinary ambassador; the afternoon will be a sneak peek into the dishes to expect at his new restaurant.
Big thanks to our event partners Gaggeneau, Scavolini, Thai Airways, Veuve Clicquot, San Pellegrino & Acqua Panna, Discovery Primea and Breville for helping us make this come to fruition. The event is also part of the Fine Dining Lovers series of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants happening around the region.
