Timing is everything in the world of fine culinary arts, and there’s perhaps no better person to articulate this message than award-winning chef Richard Ekkebus.
The culinary director of two Michelin-starred restaurant Amber invites Hong Kong Tatler into his kitchen, as he prepares two dishes of a delectable six-course meal he’s created exclusively for Blancpain’s Gala Dinner to celebrate a Metiers d’Art Exhibition held over two days on November 10 and 11. As Ekkebus talks us through his luscious menu, he tells us of the parallels between the exacting whilst highly creative worlds of watchmaking and gastronomy.
Watch the video below to witness how the same level of creativity and precision that goes into crafting a fine timepiece, also applies to the preparation of an exquisite dish:
