Stevan Tan of SM Supermalls recently hosted a special degustation dinner featuring renowned Michelin star Japanese chef Yoshiaki Ito of L’Archeste in Paris, France, alongside Hiroyuki Meno of Epilogue at S Maison.
The dinner, dubbed “Four Hands Collaboration,” was a magnificent reunion of two talented chefs who brought the sophistication of a French-Japanese nine-course meal.
Guests feasted on St-Jacques, Beignet, Pissaradiere, Gazpacho, Yellowtail and Crab, Giant Grouper, Foie Gras, Wagyu Tenderloin MB7, and Vacherin—these gastronomical European dishes were crafted with some ingredients that were locally sourced.
Ito spent 18 years working with the Hiramatsu Group in its various Michelin-star restaurants in France and served as executive chef for 10 years at the one Michelin star Hiramatsu in Paris. He rose to fame after earning a Michelin star in a record of five months for L’Archeste, which opened in September 2016.
Meanwhile, Meno honed his craft working in various Michelin-star restaurants. He was the executive chef of Brasserie Paul Bocuse and Maison Paul Bocuse, both in Tokyo.
