Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Tuesday, 30 June 2009

The Pan-Asian restaurant, ORiENT8, at the Hotel Mulia Senayan in Jakarta is flying-in the award-winning international Chef, Gunther Hubrechsen in July 2009.

Gunther will be cooking some of his whimsical French cuisine for just two nights, on 31 July and 1 August 2009. The special degustation-style evening is priced at US$ 120++ per person.

Of Belgian descent, Gunther Hubrechsen began his culinary profession at the young age of 16 and worked his way through the ranks in several renowned restaurants in Belgium, before moving on to France. There, Gunthers efforts earned him a position from trainee to sous-chef under the world-renowned Michelin-starred Chef, Alain Passard, at his three-star Michelin restaurant in Paris, where he worked for 5 years.

Gunthers cooking style and flair using natural juice and slow-cooking techniques to enhance the flavours of a dish emphasizes the importance of textures and flavors and leaves no margin for error in the kitchen.

Cooking is my passion. What Ill be doing in Jakarta is simple, honest food: cooking that comes from the heart, said Gunther. The simplest technique of cooking is actually the most difficult because there is nothing to camouflage any mistakes.

His cooking philosophy earned him the award of Rising Chef of the Year at the World Gourmet Summit in 2006.
