The latest addition to a list of prolific restaHIurants that have garnered the highly coveted Michelin Star in Malaysia– Au Jardin – will be collaborating with The Mandarin Grill from 27-29 April. Chef Marco Caverni and Chef Kim Su will be serving up a range of gastronomic delights to tease the palate and enlighten the senses, in a four-hand collaboration between both restaurants.
Originally from Penang, Chef Kim Hock’s has had a diverse experience working abroad in Europe and Taiwan, gathering the necessary skills to enhance the fine dining experience in Malaysia. Chef Kim Hock stated: “I have met Chef Marco a few times at different events, and we were able to discuss food and flavours. When I thought about doing a collaboration in KL, Chef Marco and the Mandarin Grill were the first things that came to mind. I am very excited to “set up shop” at the Mandarin Grill for these few days, it really gives me the opportunity to showcase the essence of Au Jardin.”
Together with Chef Marco, both chefs have devised a 7-course menu that intricately encapsulates both their skillsets, complementing each other with a diverse array of fresh ingredients, premium cuts, and succulent seafood.
Chef Marco, Chef de Cuisine at the Mandarin Grill, said: “Working with Kim Hock on this menu has been an amazing experience. His dedication to his craft along with the creativity and understanding of ingredients is nothing short of exceptional. He considers all the potential customers, designing dishes that would fit the palette from our standard menu to a vegetarian menu.”
