Michel Roux to Perform Culinary Magic at The Datai Langkawi

The Datai Langkawi will host culinary legend, Michel Roux OBE for an exclusive haute cuisine showcase between 18 and 20 February 2016, Michels first ever event in Malaysia.

For three nights, The Dining Room will be under the expert and esteemed leadership of Chef Michel Roux and his team, offering an unparalleled fine-dining experience of Michelin star prestige.

We are incredibly excited to invite Michel Roux to The Datai Langkawi for his first culinary event in Malaysia, said Arnaud Girodon, General Manager of The Datai Langkawi. He is such an iconic chef and guests are in for a real sensory treat, combining his world-class cuisine with our award-winning service, style and setting. Its going to be spectacular by all accounts.

Guests will be served pre-dinner cocktails Michel Roux Champagne and canaps at the Main Pool, before enjoying a five-course set menu in The Dining Room.

To further elevate the experience, Pierre Bat, Sommelier of the House of Veyret Latour (Bordeaux), will be offering a wine flight, pairing the perfect bottle with each course, to complement the flavours and enhance the gastronomic experience.

For those eager to enjoy a more hands on approach and expand their culinary repertoire, Michel Roux will also be hosting a masterclass. Guided by the Michelin chef, participants will prepare two courses for lunch to follow and receive a number of take-home mementos of the experience, such as the recipes, a cookbook and certificate signed by Michel Roux.
