Valentine The St.Regis Bangkok

The St. Regis Bangkok continues to invite Michelin-Starred guest chefs to display their craft in exclusive menus at Jojo Restaurant. From Monday 22nd to Saturday 27th January 2018, The St. Regis Bangkok presents 2-Michelin-Star Dutch Chef Edwin Vinke from his award-winning restaurant ‘De Kromme Watergang’, in the tiny village of Slijkplaat, in the picturesque Zeeland region, located in the south-west of The Netherlands.

Chef Edwin’s unique culinary mastery of land and sea is what drives visitors the world over, far and wide, to seek out his remote village, and have the chance to taste his cuisine. For the first time, Chef Edwin shares his culinary expertise and unique perspective with diners in Bangkok. For Chef Edwin, cooking is all about three words: ‘Pleasure, Passion and Perfection’.

Let your heart speak, and your brain and hands do the work. And especially use all of your senses. Smell, feel, taste, over and over again!” ~Chef Edwin Vinke.

The hallmarks of Chef Edwin’s cuisine are based on the briny, earthy flavours of his restaurant’s abundant surrounds, inspired by the breathtaking landscape of the Zeeland region, and the rich bounty of its cold salty waters.

He and his team, together, search for the freshest, fairest and most planet-friendly products, where available, with the shortest possible journey from producers and suppliers to his kitchen. Sea life and salt for cooking comes from the waters nearby, and many vegetables, fruit and herbs comes from a garden close to his restaurant.

Exclusively for guests at Jojo, from 22nd to 27th January, Chef Edwin is presenting two exquisite menus for lunch and dinner, in six and eight courses respectively, with an optional sommelier’s wine pairing for each. With extraordinary daring and creativity, Chef Edwin selects the finest and freshest produce and allows it to shine.

Set the tastebuds tingling with a mojito ginger shot and spicy oyster, coupled with linseed and tapioca crisps and a pickle dip. Get a taste of the sea, when seabass and razor clams meet a Mexican estragon, agruum, almond, basil and tomato. Poultry is paired with smokey carrot, while cuttlefish and pork make for tasty bedfellows, as do sole and duck liver with Jerusalem artichoke.

In the 8-course menu, guests also have the pleasure of sampling North Sea crab and scallops, served with avocado, pistachio, apple and huacatay, as well as turbot and sea snails, with potato, sea vegetables, seaweed and verbena.

Cheese courses will never be the same again, as goat’s cheese is served with honey, thyme, beetroot, apple and pecan, before the ‘Dame Blanche’ makes a dessert cameo appearance, to end on a sweet and salty smooth note, with a hint of rum. The palate is assured to be both aroused and sated, in spectacular fashion.
