Food | Michelin-starred French Feast

Michelin-starred-Guest-Chef-Philippe-Arrambide-Michelin-starred restaurant at Crown Towers, City of Dreams, The Tasting Room offered an exquisite French dining experience last week, an exclusive and exciting culinary collaboration between guest chef Philippe Arrambide of famed Michelin-starred restaurant Les Pyrénées in the South of France and The Tasting Room’s Chef de Cuisine Guillaume Galliot.
The six-course Michelin-starred dinner menu featured the very best of authentic French cuisine. We enjoyed smoked salmon tarama with citrus infused, mussel lentil, bread chips and green asparagus foam; scampi with Aquitaine caviar, green apple and celeriac cream, Sarasin powder; slow cooked egg yolk, potato mousse onion and green chili, cèpes mushroom emulsion; Brittany lobster fricassee, saffron risotto, sauted squid ink sauce; roasted pigeon with bacon, carrot jelly, onion tempura green pea variation; and finished with passion fruit molleux with mango compote, marber of kiwipassion, banana tuile.
“The slow cooked egg yolk, potato mousse onion and green chili is like a deconstructed omelette. It is inspired by something simple. Overall, I love to work with seasonal ingredients and to respect nature, and then, it depends on my mood to make whatever I think is the best dish to serve at the moment. It is indeed a great pleasure to be in Macau,” he said.
Growing up in a small town near the border of Spain and whose family runs a hotel and restaurant business, Chef Philippe Arrambide is deeply influenced by the local food culture as reflected in his culinary style, and he enjoyed an early exposure to culinary art as son of successful Michelin-starred chef Firmin Arrambide. Philippe has acquired a wealth of culinary experience in many of France’s renowned restaurants, including Les Jardins de l’Opéra in Toulouse, Carré des Feuillants and Fauchon in Paris, and Le Jardin des Sens in Montpellier. After returning to his family business in 2000, his achievements were recognized with a one Michelin Star Award in 2002 and then a two Michelin Star Award in 2008.
