Diners can expect a culinary feast like no other as the two acclaimed chefs join forces to create a multi-course tasting menu that highlights their contemporary European culinary influences and shared passion for using high-quality seasonal produce.

“Johanne and I have known each other for a few years now and after a five-day culinary retreat at Shishi-Iwa House in Karuizawa, Japan last October, where we visited local farmers and food producers, and collaborated on a one-off menu, we decided we needed to do a collaboration and cook together once more. I am delighted to have her join me in the MONO kitchen to celebrate another year of great food with great people,” says Chef Chaneton.

“Being from the Philippines, I’ve always had a fascination with Latin American food since we share a lot of culinary ties and traditions. Even as chefs, Ricardo and I also have a very similar philosophy in terms of our European culinary training and creating produce-driven dishes. I’m looking forward to working with Ricardo on creating a special menu filled with delicious new creations that incorporate our roots and our journeys,” adds Chef Siy.
