Jiang Nan Restaurant Presents Authentic Jiangnan Cuisine at The Venetian Macao

500 272 wttc2

Jiang Nan Restaurant Presents Authentic Jiangnan Cuisine at The Venetian Macao - TRAVELINDEXMacao, Macao SAR, December 31, 2021 / TRAVELINDEX / The Venetian Macao’s Jiang Nan by Jereme Leung restaurant in partnership with renowned celebrity master chef Jereme Leung features the very best of Jiangnan cuisine, showcasing the authentic flavours of Shanghai, Jiangsu and Zhejiang.

A pioneer of modern Chinese cuisine and winner of multiple culinary awards, Chef Jereme is one of the most creative and inspiring chefs in the industry. Born in Hong Kong, he honed his craft in Singapore, and has been active on the Chinese culinary scene ever since. Chef Jereme was a judge on the Chinese edition of MasterChef for several years, and appeared in the popular food documentary ‘A Bite of China’. His revolutionary combination of contemporary techniques and presentation with traditional recipes has pushed the boundaries, taking the culinary world by storm and reigniting interest in Chinese cuisine.

“Jiang Nan by Jereme Leung at The Venetian Macao represents an unparalleled opportunity to share this superb yet underrepresented regional cuisine,” commented Chef Jereme Leung. “Through the use of fresh, high-quality ingredients and contemporary cooking techniques, we will present an elevated dining experience. An evolving seasonal menu means there will always be new and surprising additions to delight customers.” While celebrating the essence of traditional Chinese gastronomy, Chef Jereme has made bold refinements that give it a modern and global dimension.

“My diverse background allows me to look at Chinese cuisine from a broader perspective. I am constantly bringing new things into the kitchen with the belief that I can better present traditional dishes, giving them a new twist,” he added.

A premium dining experience where contemporary chic meets timeless elegance, Jiang Nan by Jereme Leung is perfect for both special occasions and everyday meals. Designed around signature dishes specially created by Chef Jereme, the menu features classic Jiangnan cooking methods and specialities updated on a seasonal basis. The region’s rich climate offers a bounty of seasonal produce, crafted by time-honoured techniques to create outstanding cuisine. In addition to classic fare from the region, authenticity is further provided by the restaurant’s chefs, who are mainly Jiangnan natives.

An example of Chef Jereme’s ingenuity at Jiang Nan is the reimagining of traditional Jiangnan dishes to provide a Macao connection. ‘Fortune chicken’ is based on classic dish ‘Beggar’s chicken’, and resembles a gold ingot that is ceremonially cracked open at the table before serving. ‘Mahjong full house – Shanghai’s White Rabbit creamy candy’ consists of colourful mahjong tiles identical to the real thing in every way except they are created using the popular White Rabbit candy many will remember from their childhoods.

More traditional dishes are enhanced to deliver a superior taste and presentation experience. Chef Jereme’s take on boneless yellow croaker fish is to fill them with Suzhou-style crab paste and crab roe and smaller yellow croaker fish rather than the traditional broth with large fish, both enriching the flavour and aroma and giving diners an element of delightful surprise. Other signature dishes include ‘eight treasures’ braised duck, lotus-shaped fish dumplings in supreme consommé and drunken crab in Shao Xing Hua Diao wine.

Jiang Nan also offers special touches and details to guarantee a perfect meal. A beverage trolley serves daily specials directly to the table, while steaming hot rice is also provided as table service like a home meal to enhance the taste of dishes.

Diners will appreciate Jiang Nan’s striking interior design, based on the Shanghai Art Deco movement of the 1920s and 1930s. Shikumen brickwork enhances the sense of space that artfully conveys both homeliness and Chinese style luxury, with sophisticated elements informed by bespoke furniture, lighting and artwork. A playful theme references birdcages throughout the restaurant, while the modern chinaware, custom-made by Hong Kong designer Monica Tsang, features bird motifs.

2426 What’s Your Surname? My Café at My Beach Resort Phuket

500 313 wttc2

2426 What’s Your Surname? My Café at My Beach Resort Phuket - TRAVELINDEXPhuket, Thailand, December 23, 2021 / TRAVELINDEX / My Café at My Beach Resort Phuket will take all gastronomes to a flashback of the past into an era when surnames were still new in Siam or Thailand in the current day. At that time, Thailand’s many delicious dishes still did not have prominent names and still relied on the Western culture and influence. Our locally made food was collectively called “Thai Food” from the development of the word “Eat Like Thai.”

Discover the origins of the name of dishes under the concept of “2426 What’s Your Surname?” a beautiful journey led by Chef Tai Nutchtakamol Songkhramsee, our guest chef, the owner of Tanya’s restaurant, and a figure widely recognised as the hidden jewel in Hua-Hin’s restaurant industry.

For centuries, inhabitants of Thailand did not have surnames, and all went by similar first names. 2426 BE was the first time when postal communications were introduced in Thailand and required people to be distinguished by the given and surnames, which were usually the given names of their parents. Therefore, when the postman went out to deliver mail, a question that was frequently asked was “What’s your surname?” in order to ensure that mail was delivered to its correct recipients. Comparably, Thai dishes during that era did not have names to refer to. Recipes were not recorded making it difficult to recreate dishes, and it was during this similar period that the first Thai cookbook ever recorded, the “Mae Krua Hua Pa” cookbook, appeared. This cookbook and other cookbooks during the same era had become the inspiration of our dining event along with the integration of Chef Tai’s family recipes passed down through generations, making this meal exceptional.

This dining experience at 2426 What’s Your Surname? will make you feel as if you were dining at a friend’s place, and they were telling you stories about each dish you are enjoying. Hors’ d’oeuvres will begin with Macaroni cooked with pineapple curry and dressed in horseshoe crab eggs, followed by a combination of old meets new – Steamed curried fish served in jelly form. The next dish as part of our hors d’oeuvre is a bite of Mun Luem Gluen, mashed potatoes topped with garlic and pepper shrimp. For appetizers, Kanom Jeen Poon or Thai fermented rice vermicelli dressed in grilled scallops and crab meat will be served followed by a soup, Tom Plong Talay, a traditional Thai tamarind seafood soup with grilled giant tiger prawn, squid and salmon. For the main course, guests will be served Khao Sao Nam and Mussamun Som Za, or rice in seasoned soup served with orange infused massaman curry with a choice of meat. The dining experience ends with a dessert called Kanom Chang Ma, or traditional Thai sweet rice noodles in coconut cream. Come and join us for a wonderful evening of delicious food and memorable moments.

Our delightful food journey presented in a 5-course meal is THB 2,500++ (excluding beverages). Experience 2426 What’s Your Surname? from 23 December 2021 until 16 January 2022. For reservations, please call 076 305 066

Featured in this fifth local edition are 361 dining establishments – with 6 two Michelin Star (all retained their status), 26 one Michelin Star, 133 Bib Gourmand, and other 196 selected entries.

Gwendal Poullennec, International Director of Michelin Guides, revealed: “Due to lockdowns and dine-in restrictions during the COVID-19 pandemic in many countries, the restaurant business has been on its all-time lows. Nevertheless, Thailand sees the opening of new restaurants with interesting cuisine types – such as street-food-inspired stalls and authentic Thai food from ancient recipes. Local produce and ingredients have been incorporated in the menu, as diners are increasingly concerned about living healthy lifestyles and food sources. This not only ensures optimum freshness that elevates the cuisine, but also encourages sustainability in the agriculture and restaurant industries that help boost up the local economy.”

“This year’s Michelin Guide celebrates Ayutthaya as the latest city introduced into the guide – yet the oldest and with the richest heritage among all. In addition, this former capital city of Thailand boasts historical charm and retains among the greatest history in Thai cuisine. We are thus convinced that our local and international readers will enjoy exploring this extended coverage of Thailand’s culinary scene,” added Mr.Poullennec.

Six New Entrants Joining the one Michelin Star List, While the two Michelin Star Listing Remains the Same

In the 2022 Michelin Guide Thailand edition, two Michelin Star listing remains the same with 6 entries – namely, Chef’s Table, Le Normandie, Mezzaluna, R-Haan, Sorn, and Sühring. However, the one Michelin Star selection welcomes 6 new entrants, all located in Bangkok, namely: Aksorn, a Thai restaurant offering flavorsome dishes inspired by chef’s collected Thai cookbooks from the 1940s to the 1970s, with highlights including the coconut cupcakes with salted pork, and the fermented bean curd relish with minced pork and prawns;

Côte by Mauro Colagreco, a French contemporary restaurant with contemporary Riviera-inspired cuisine that serves lunch set menus, à la carte dishes, plus a special nine-course “Carte Blanche” dinner – an Omakase experience where every course is a surprise;

Gaa, an innovative restaurant offering an exquisite variety of Indian dishes transformed with modern techniques and presentation, plus a street-food-inspired tasting menu with a delightful balance of flavors, textures and aromas; IGNIV, a European contemporary restaurant serving up modern European cuisine – including its signature chicken nuggets and barbecue sauce – through a unique shared meal experience; Savelberg (new by relocation), a French contemporary restaurant offering à la carte and fixed menus that boast sophisticated modern French fare made from fine international ingredients; Yu Ting Yuan, a Chinese restaurant offering refined Cantonese dishes that emphasize nuance of flavor and strike the right balance of oil – with highlights including delectable Peking Duck and succulent Dim Sum.

Another 51 Eateries Included for the First Time in This Year’s Michelin Guide Selection
Apart from dining establishments awarded with the Michelin Star, the Bib Gourmand, and the Michelin Green Star; the official selection of the 2022 Michelin Guide Thailand edition also recognizes an additional 196 eateries that provide good meals, capably prepared with fresh ingredients and good cooking. Out of this number, 91 are located in Bangkok & Surrounding Provinces, 16 in Ayutthaya, 37 in Chiang Mai, and 52 in Phuket & Phang-Nga.

It is notable that 51 are first-time entrants (15 in Bangkok, 16 in Ayutthaya, 5 in Chiang Mai, and 15 in Phuket & Phang-Nga). Among them are Baan Suriyasai [Bangkok], a restaurant offering time-tested dishes drawn from royal recipes and bygone family favourites – including the savory 5-spice stew with boiled eggs; and the stir-fried crispy pork belly, fish flakes, and dried shrimp with seasoned paste; Phak Wan Noodles [Ayutthaya], the first and only restaurant in Ayutthaya where every dish is cooked using local greens called “Pak Wan” (Melientha), providing unique and pleasantly different flavors and aromas; Yangzi Jiang [Chiang Mai], a Chinese restaurant in a contemporary Lanna house, offering fresh, clean, and expertly cooked food – including the signature steamed scallop dumplings with black truffles; Juumpo [Phang-Nga], a restaurant offering many unique local “Baba” (Chinese-Thai) recipes – such as the Baba-style coconut milk soup with shrimps and Thai herbs, the chilli dip with shrimp, and the fried fish with sweet and sour sauce.

PRU Retains Its Michelin Green Star: The One and Only in Thailand
For the second year in a row, PRU – the one Michelin Star restaurant in Phuket – retains the Michelin Green Star for its sustainable gastronomy practices. As part of the restaurant’s initiatives, ‘Pru Jampa’ – PRU’s own farm that supplies vegetables, herbs and flowers – is where PRU puts the idea of permaculture into practice, while pursuing sustainability and supporting artisan producers. With seasonal, 100% locally sourced ingredients that determine its menu cycles, the restaurant offers a dining experience that combines culinary excellence with outstanding eco-friendly commitment, and stands as a source of inspiration both for foodies and the restaurant industry as a whole.

Panang Curry Striploin Beef is a red Thai curry that is thick, salty and sweet, with a zesty makrut lime flavour and captivating aromatic chili paste that perfectly compliment the tender and juicy grilled Australian striploin. This dish is a celebration of flavours, making it the perfect meal to mark the end of the year.

Secret Top Chef tip for the perfect grilled steak is to rest the beef after cooking, this will help keep the juices locked in. Resting meat after cooking is essential for tender, juicy results every time, it allows the beef cut to reabsorb and distribute the juices that have been constricted during the cooking process. If you were to cut a beef right off the grill, you’ll notice that the internal juices immediately run out of it, leaving you with a dry and tough final product. So, remember to be like a Top Chef…rest first, then enjoy.

For the first time in its long history, InterContinental Phuket Resort worked alongside with “Chef Ton”, a celebrity chef celebrated for his prominence in Thai cuisines with creative twists and high-quality ingredients. He runs the restaurant Le Du, his own modern Thai restaurant recognized as the fourth best restaurant in the latest Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants and aptly decorated with a Michelin star as a mark of world-class recognition.

The opening event: “Jaras x Le Du” welcomed our guests to the seaside Thai cuisine fine dining experience delicately prepared by “Chef Ton”, a greatly renowned chef in charge of the Le Du restaurant together with our own “Chef Banky” (Chatchawan Warahajirakul), the best chef in charge of our proudly Jaras restaurant. The event’s main attraction was 5-course Omakase (designed by chef) style Thai cuisine paired with premium wines expertly selected by our sommeliers.

The course started with a Southern style amuse-bouche that packed a spicy punch: “Nam Prik Goong Seab”, the famous Phuket shrimp paste reimagined as a savory mousse served with banana prawns and fresh garden vegetables. Next on the plate is the familiarly sounding “Namm Kor Moo Yang” (flame grilled fermented pork) but the familiar name came with special twists. The 3-day fermented pork was made with Kurobuta pork (Berkshire pork) from Nan province elevated with our special seasoning to a new height of flavors. The next dish that came in a bowl was “Tom Klong Pla Mong”, a delicate soup made from Andaman trevallies aged for 7 days in smoked fish broth and aromatized with lemongrass and mushroom puree to the Thai’s true spicy tastes. Then came the main course: “Ped Pa Lo”, or duck stewed in five-spice jus balanced with white pears in white wine, cured beetroot, radish, and mandarin. And to finish the course, a whimsical dessert “Pork Blood Pudding” was brought to the table. The rich and smooth sweet basil ice-cream was accompanied with pork blood pudding, bringing surprise along with the sublime dessert.

For our “Pine x Le De”, the Phuket’s most-talked-about Sunday brunch was made even more special with Thai cuisines exclusively reimagined by “Chef Ton” of Le Du. The creations included Oyster with Cilantro and Chili Granita, Crudo of Hamachi with Phla Sauce, Grilled Squid with Turmeric and Passion Fruit Sauce, Goong Rom Kwan in Galangal Curry, Gaeng Pla Korat, Lamb Massaman Curry, and Tonkatsu Pork Neck with Curry Sauce along with various menus for our guests to enjoy with Kamala beach’s great scenery, great music from our DJs, and free-flow Champagne.
