Schloss Schauenstein, tucked in a fairy tale castle, has been drawing well-heeled gourmands from all around the world to savor the cuisine delivered by chef Andreas Caminada in the remote mountainous area of Fürstenau. The restaurant has been garnered with ultimate accolade this year: it has been awarded three Michelin stars, named one of the world’s best restaurants in World’s 50 Best Restaurants list, and recently crowned Sustainable Restaurant Award by World’s 50 Best.
Chef Andreas has a mission to expand his culinary empire to Bangkok next year, bringing IGVIV – the establishment merging gourmet dining with sharing concept, to The St. Regis, due to open in April 2020. In the meantime, the chef is teasing Bangkokians’ palate with some of the outstanding creations from Schloss Schauenstein, delivered by the restaurant’s head chef David Hartwig and pastry chef Arne Riehn.
Tucked inside Jojo restaurant, “The Peak” is a causal countertop pop-up eatery catering up to 12 diners daily. The six-course menu brings to the fore delicate-yet-flavorful flavor delivered by top-notch ingredients. Highlights include small five amuse-bouche, each of which reflects nicely unique flavor profile, followed by lightly cooked mackerel served with daikon, avocado and wasabi, the bold-flavored pork neck with onion and dried pear, and two parts of lamb served with harissa and spiced jus.
Chef Arne also delivered exceptional desserts. His creation of basil sorbet with red wine cream has a nice Thai touch from “long kong” fruit, while lemon cake with lemon yoghurt and herb salad ends the meal with a nice refreshing touch.
“The Peak” will be running every Tuesday to Saturday until 2 January, from 18:00 onward. For reservation, contact 0 2207 7777 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
