The irascible and intrepid Travelling Gourmet TM visits what used to be the Supreme Court but is now the…
MAGNIFICENTLY restored National Gallery of Singapore, to taste the 2 Michelin Star cuisine of mon ami Chef Julien Royer. Odette is named for Julien’s grandma on his mother’s side, and now has 2 Michelin Stars. Julien hails form Auvergne which is one of Franc’s greatest treasures, a largely rural region of farms, artisanal cheese makers, mountains, valleys, forests and rivers.
I was overjoyed to be seated in the kitchen at the very special Chef’s Table near the Garde Manger (Cold Food) section. It brought back happy memories of cooking with mon bon ami Chef Philippe Legendre of le Cinq in Paris.
A definite must-try is the Declination of Pigeon cooked in a Dutch Oven and presented in a very unique segmented plate. Truly a most delicieux dish to rob a bank for!
