Shared an article with my 2 ROCKSTARS: Janice Wong of 2am: Dessert Bar and Will Goldfarb of Ku De Ta Bali..
*somebody PLEASE pinch me!!!
Our takes on deconstructed-style of desserts and also my recipe for a Deconstructed Strawberry Shortcake on Femina No.19 (May 2013)
Well, nearby idols..
i mean i could have Johnny Iuzinni, Herme and many other big names here.. But these are the names that i heavily adored and idolized, and it’s pretty much makes a perfect sense if i would like to have a projects with any of them.
Andrian Ishak- Namaaz Dining Jakarta
I have mentioned that i despise self-learning people, but Andrian have made me change that thought. The success of Namaaz Dining as the first Indonesian-themed Molecular Gastronomy restaurant in Jakarta followed by his glory at 2012 Jakarta Culinary Festival puts him straight up into this list of people that i would like to work with. i better get the bookings started for his Season 2 at Namaaz Dining (PS: it’s east javanese feast!)
Will Goldfarb- Ku De Ta Bali
An offer came up to my inbox from him. from then on lots of twitter messages were exchanged. His witty works and crazy flavor combination just reminded me a lot of why am i in this industry and his Fairytale dinner with Janice Wong in Singapore was just simply insane. Finally get a chance to meet him at the 2012 Jakarta Culinary Festival, i’m looking forward to that chance of working with him.
Janice Wong- 2am: Dessert Bar Singapore
I was that lucky to be able to work for her at 2011 F1 Grand Prix for a function at Marina Bay Sands rooftop. With several chances of trying out her masterpieces, i hereby confirmed that YES, it was indeed an honor to work for her that one rare weekend. With her extensive works at 2am: Lab in Singapore, maybe one day, i will get a chance to share the kitchen with her.
Who ever guess that Bitter would be a main flavor for a dessert?
