Savour Food Gourmet and Festival Singapore

GUCCI OSTERIA – KARIME LÓPEZ

Karime López went to Paris to learn French to prepare for art college in France, and instead discovered the pastries and cuisine of the city, which inspired her to go to cooking school in Spain for three years. Returning to her birth country of Mexico, Karime began working in the kitchen of famed restaurant Pujol, followed by experiences in Japan’s Ryugin and Osteria Francescana. The chef runs the kitchen of Gucci Osteria da Massimo Bottura, creating dishes she helped Massimo Bottura design.

James Knappett
Bubbledogs, London, UK

Voted one of Britain’s Most Influential Men by GQ Magazine, James Knappett is the new “it” chef in London with the hip Bubbledogs&, serving up gourmet hotdogs with grower Champagne.

Voted one of Britain’s Most Influential Men 2013 by GQ Magazine, James is one of the UK’s most talked about chefs at the moment.

With an exceptional resume and references from some gastonomy legends like Thomas Keller (Per Se,
3 Michelin stars), Rene Redzepi (noma, #1 on the Worlds Best List 2012, 2 Michelin stars), Gordon Ramsay (Royal Hospital Road, 3 Michelin stars) and Marcus Wareing (Marcus Wareing at The Berkley, 2 Michelin stars), the foodie community was aflutter when James ventured out with Bubbledogs& and broke all the rules.


Henrik Yde
Kiin Kiin
Copenhagen, Denmark
1 Michelin Star

From the birthplace of culinary institutions such as the the world’s best restaurant, noma, comes a Danish chef doing the truly unexpected – Thai cuisine. Kiin Kiin is first Thai restaurant in the world to be awarded a Michelin star.

Henrik Yde is both trained chef and sommelier and is the founder and Restaurant Kiin Kiin in Copenhagen, one of only two Thai restaurants in the world to be awarded a star in the Michelin Guide.

Henrik’s interest in Thai food was born during his four year stay in Thailand starting in 2000 where he worked his way through Asian restaurants, collecting recipes and learning hands-on the secret of Asian cooking.

 
Kiin Kiin serves a modern Thai cuisine, with local produce and everything from fish sauce to prawn crackers made from scratch. The opening of Kiin Kiin in 2006 has been a great success and it has spawned a restaurant empire for Henrik, including award-winning Sra Bua in Bangkok. 

Mark Best
Marque, Australia
2 Hats, Chef of the Year
Restaurant of the Year

Boasting incredible technical skills and a philosophy that never compromises on quality, Marque Restaurant has been featured on practically every food guide in Australia as one the best in the country. Voted Chef of the Year by Sydney Morning Herald, Restaurant of the Year by TimeOut Sydney and of course the coveted Chef Hats recipient, we are really looking forward to what Chef Mark has to offer.

Mark Best started by discovering the stoves accidentally and ended up becoming an unquestionable symbol of the new Australian Cuisine. His perseverance and his ‘eternal dissatisfaction’ (as he calls it himself) are the vitamins for his spectacular personal development.

Mark Best started his working life as an electrician in the gold mines of Western Australia before starting his culinary career at the age of 25. He commenced an apprenticeship at the Macleay Street Bistro, Potts Point, in 1990. This was the beginning of his passion for French food. In the fourth year of his apprenticeship he was awarded the Josephine Pignolet Award for ‘Best Up and Coming Chef’ in NSW.


‘Few Chefs have stayed at the front of contemporary cuisine with such consistent results’
Australian Gourmet Traveller 2014 Guide

In 1995 with wife Valerie Best, he opened his own restaurant, Peninsula Bistro, Balmain, which soon developed a strong local following and rave critical acclaim. During this time he decided to further his study of French Cuisine in France. In 1998 he worked at ‘L’Arpége’ in Paris, Alain Passard’s three Michelin Star ‘Gastro Temple’. He followed this with a stint at Raymond Blanc’s, ‘Le Manoir Aux Quatre Saisons’ in Great Milton, UK. His time overseas fuelled his desire to open Marque.
