Bangkok's Shangri-La Hotel will be welcoming Michelin-star chef Jeff Ramsey, a "culinary engineer" from Tokyo, to Angelini Italian Restaurant and Bar between Sept 16 and 21.
For his sojourn at Angelini's, Ramsey, who is now renowned for his Asian modernist cuisine, has devised an exclusive "molecular tapas" dinner menu for a a maximum of 12 guests at a time. There will only be two seatings per night - at 6.30pm and 8.30pm - during the six-day promotion.
Diners will get to enjoy an interactive dining experience while watching Ramsey and his team put the finishing touches to a total of 23 different tapas dishes which he will then personally serve to guests seated at the dining bar in Angelini's open kitchen.
The molecular tapas dinner is priced at 3,800 baht per person.
The dinner will start with bite-sized tapas which includes compressed pineapple impregnated with a Mai Tai cocktail mix; sesame-coconut polverone and crab sandwich; tom yum goong-flavoured ceviche of blue prawns; mochi cheese noodles with strawberry sauce and pesto genovese; plus a roasted lamb chop with a liquid centre served with lavender, yoghurt and potatoes.
To end this special meal on a high note, there will be classic home-made petit fours such as doughnut with foie gras and muscat creme, sweet kinako-powder Chinese sesame balls with white bean paste plus "oxygen and matcha marshmallows".
