[Macau – 12th October, 2018] In a special tribute to Joël Robuchon’s lasting culinary legacy, his family of chefs – Éric Bouchenoire, Tomonori Danzaki, François Benot, together with Julien Tongourian – all of whom worked with Robuchon for decades and share his culinary DNA, are reuniting in Macau to continue telling Robuchon’s story through his dishes. On Saturday, 20 October 2018, guests are invited to experience a culinary journey of his classic dishes through a very special Gala Dinner at Robuchon au Dôme.
For this year’s Gala Dinner, Robuchon au Dôme Executive Chef Julien Tongourian, who opened the very first L’Atelier with Robuchon in 2003, will work alongside Éric Bouchenoire, Chef du Laboratoire de Creation et Coordination, whom much like Robuchon is a perfectionist and has been honored with the Meilleur Ouvrier de France; Tomonori Danzaki, Chef Conseil, who opened Joël Robuchon restaurant with him in Tokyo and François Benot, Chef Patissier Conseil from Joël Robuchon International France who joined Robuchon in the opening of La Table in Paris. Together, they will present a meticulously handcrafted 8-course Gala Dinner in Robuchon’s honor.
Executive Chef Julien speaks of his time with Robuchon with great emotion: “I worked with him for 20 years. He taught me that the precision in making each dish is important and that we must cook with heart and passion for our guests just as if they are our family. Here at Robuchon au Dôme, I carry on his life’s work.”
To continue conveying his story, Chef Éric and Chef Julien have both crafted a very special 8-course menu highlighting Robuchon’s classic dishes for the Gala Dinner. “We have carefully designed this menu to preserve the authenticity of Robuchon’s work,” Chef Julien said. “We want guests to immediately recognize that each dish is the work of Robuchon, as he was inspirational for many people around the world.” Three dishes in particular, are very representative of Robuchon – Le Caviar der Sologne, La Langoustine and La Poularde de Bresse. These dishes are especially symbolic of the technical and emotional bond Robuchon had with his culinary art, and will be shared with guests at the dinner.
The Gala Dinner is priced at MOP4,600 per person plus 10% service charge. For reservations or to learn more, please call: (853) 8803 7878.
