Beautifully simple dishes

Sebastien’s suggestions

Recently we have seen a shift in catering from over-the-top 20+ ingredient dishes (with various molecular gastronomic components) to bringing things back to showcase simple yet flavourful offerings. At our new Eatertainment test kitchen & office, our fresh new direction is inspired by starting with basic quality ingredients, then adding our own dose of passion and talent to create dishes that truly standout without being over-complicated. While the presentation for us is of course important, a simpler approach offers a unique opportunity to create menus for our wedding and corporate clients that focus on accentuating the basics in a creative and interesting way. Using four to five ingredients per dish ensures the flavours of each item really stand out and work to complement one another. They also simplify the process for those home chefs who want to re-create dishes on their own. We love to inspire our clients to experiment in their own kitchens, and keeping it simple and achievable is key to this.

Once Upon an Island

Private islands and atolls occupy a sacred place in our imagination. The Brando’s untarnished natural beauty and remote location has become a metaphor for simpler times and a less frantic lifestyle, away from the constant reminders of civilization and cellphones.
