Château Palmer Dinner Brings Together the Chefs from Le Du, Mume and Toyo Eatery

          On 23 January 2019, Chef Thitid (Ton) Tassanakajohn and the team of Le Du Bangkok welcomed Chef Jordy Navarra of Toyo Eatery (Manila, Philippines) and Chef Richie Lin of MUME (Taipei, Taiwan) to create a stunning 6-hand dinner to showcase CHÂTEAU PALMER wines.

          What made this dinner stand out was the fact that the chefs share a very similar food philosophy, favouring local-ingredient driven cuisine whilst redefining the traditional foods of their respective cultures. The night brought together Thai, Filipino and Taiwanese and Chinese flavours, with each chef contributing at least 2 dishes, integrating local Thai ingredients and the produce they sourced themselves from home.

          This dinner wasn’t about each chef just bringing his dishes to the table. Their shared outlook and overlapping influence on each other’s cooking were apparent in a sensational dish like the Thai ox tongue with cucumber and Taiwanese spices.

          Their harmony and friendship was evident over a few more glasses of Château Palmer wine to celebrate a successful night after the dinner. Château Palmer is a winery in Margaux, the prestige appellation in Haut-Médoc located just north of Bordeaux. The estate can trace its roots back to the middle of the 18th century and was classified as a Troisième Cru (third growth) in 1855. Over the course of the evening, we were treated to wine pairings with Château Palmer vintages of 1995, 2000, 2005 and 2012.

          In the opinion of Bangkok Foodies, this threesome is the one to beat in 2019 (so far!). Not only was each dish a stand-alone feat but the menu in its entirety was exciting and cohesive, an achievement not always shared by other multiple handed dining events.

CHÂTEAU PALMER DINNER. I may have to swallow my tongue in the case of who gets the most memorable dish of the night. This Ox Tongue absolutely rendered us speechless. OK, enough of the tongue puns, but truly and deeply this dish had everyone moaning throughout. Quite the genius to combine Ox Tongue with Abolone, then flavour it up with Taiwanese spices. But must of all that texture, that damn flawless texture!Massive props to @ledubkk x @mume_taiwan x @toyoeatery and @chateaupalmer for a meal never to forget. #BangkokFoodies #ledubkk #MumeTaiwan #toyoeatery #bangkokfood #bangkokrestaurant #foodbkk #michelinguide #thailand #thaifood #bangkok #foodies #bangkokguide #bangkokfoodguide #TaipeiFoodies #filipinofood

CHÂTEAU PALMER DINNER. By far the most memorable. @toyoeatery ‘s first contribution to this spread fell a little out the way but in the best possible way. Less of traditional with a French twist or experimentally hyper local, this was rough and rustic cum class. One Bite and you’re hooked. Two bites and you’re lost in nostalgia. Massive props to @ledubkk x @mume_taiwan x @toyoeatery and @chateaupalmer for a meal never to forget. #BangkokFoodies #ledubkk #MumeTaiwan #toyoeatery #bangkokfood #bangkokrestaurant #foodbkk #michelinguide #thailand #thaifood #bangkok #foodies #bangkokguide #bangkokfoodguide #TaipeiFoodies #filipinofood #finedininglovers #sanpellegrino

CHÂTEAU PALMER DINNER Impossible to pick a “favourite”, but if somebody had me in a headlock until I choked, I would have likely blurted out this dish. The Squid, shrimp paste, palm sugar. Why? Because of precision and balance, because it’s poetry for the mouth and you don’t even see it coming. @ledubkk do not disappointed, this is highly intelligent cooking and everyone brought their A game tonight. Bravo. Massive props to @ledubkk x @mume_taiwan x @toyoeatery and @chateaupalmer for a meal never to forget. #BangkokFoodies #ledubkk #MumeTaiwan #toyoeatery #bangkokfood #bangkokrestaurant #foodbkk #michelinguide #thailand #thaifood #bangkok #foodies #bangkokguide #bangkokfoodguide #TaipeiFoodies #filipinofood #finedininglovers #sanpellegrino

CHÂTEAU PALMER DINNER at @ledubkk You know I’ve only ever eaten at @mume_taiwan once and that singular experience alone was outstanding. An experience that leaves you in a sort of listless wonderment. But upon trying a single dish again, and not even on the same turf, yet many months later, like an epiphany – it hits you. Chef Richie Lin has formed his own unique signature flavour, and that is what makes everything the more remarkable. I could close my eyes and know without a shadow of a doubt, this dish was borne with @mume_taiwan ‘s touch. Massive props to @ledubkk x @mume_taiwan x @toyoeatery and @chateaupalmer for a meal never to forget. @masonflo @filippocassabgi @little_meg_siu_meg #BangkokFoodies #ledubkk #MumeTaiwan #toyoeatery #bangkokfood #bangkokrestaurant #foodbkk #michelinguide #thailand #thaifood #bangkok #foodies #bangkokguide #bangkokfoodguide #TaipeiFoodies #filipinofood #finedininglovers #sanpellegrino
