(SPOT.ph) As Filipino food breaks through the global scene, Metro Manila foodies are, in turn, given more and more opportunities to experience top-level cuisine from around the world. Internationally renowned, award-winning chefs like Alvin Leung, Nobu Matsuhisa, Akrame Benallal, and more have already impressed their culinary styles upon Pinoys, and the latest to watch for is Chef Andre Chiang.
Taiwan-born, French-trained chef Andre Chiang owns five restaurants in Taiwan, Singapore, and France. His Restaurant ANDRE in Singapore currently ranks No. 3 on Asia's 50 Best Restaurants. He is famous for having an "Octaphilosophy" in his dishes.
According to the write-up on Asia's 50 Best Restaurants list: "To dine at Restaurant André is to embark on an exploratory journey around the mind and memory of chef and co-owner André Chiang. Each of the eight exquisite courses, paired primarily with biodynamic French artisanal wines, reflects aspects of his multi-faceted culinary experience."
Chef Andre will be cooking with Gallery VASK's Chef Chele Gonzalez for an exclusive three-part degustacion on May 22 (dinner) and May 23 (lunch and dinner). Gallery Vask, by the way, is the Philippines' lone entry in Asia's 50 Best list.
