Centering the Cooler Season with Winter Guestronomic Journey at Elements
Bangkok, Thailand, January 2, 2023 / TRAVELINDEX / Start 2023 in fabulous flair with the astonishing new ‘Winter Guestronomic Dining Journey’ carefully crafted by Chef Gerard Villaret Horcajo at Elements, inspired by Ciel Bleu at The Okura Prestige Bangkok. This latest dining experience at the renowned Michelin-starred restaurant showcases magnificent premium seasonal ingredients and flavours from some of the finest artisanal producers in Europe and Japan. Available from 4 January 2023 onward.
Chef Gerard’s ‘Winter Guestronomic Dining Journey’ menu is characterised by rich, warm flavours designed to take away seasonal blues. Centering on French cuisine laced with delicate Japanese influences, his dishes are sophisticated in composition and further enhanced using his duo sauce technique. Making menus playful and bold, Chef Gerard continues to celebrate Elements, inspired by Ciel Bleu’s commitment to exquisite fine dining with a twist.
Highlights of the new seasonal set journey include flavourful ‘Ikejime Hamachi’ with kombu, oyster regal and sorrel; a dish of ‘langoustine tail’ with ikura, spinach and veloute that uses whole langoustines to create a deeply rich sauce; and the mouthwatering ‘Brittany lemon sole’ with Japanese hakurei turnip and mussel in which the delicate winter fish is cooked with a classic vadouvan spice marinated in miso and mirin and then rolled in shiso leaves and served with a homemade dashi demi-glaze.
The gastronomic odyssey concludes with a choice of delicate desserts – either way the signature ‘binchotan’ with Japanese whiskey, citrus and caramelize white chocolate; or ‘Provence almonds’ with premium 70% French L’Opera dark chocolate, cranberry and praline rounds off a superb dining adventure on an exquisite sweet note.
