Three-star Michelin Guest Chef Thomas Buhner debuts at Mandarin Oriental Bangkok
April 23, 2015: Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok has announced a guest residency by one of Germany’s most celebrated chefs, Thomas Bühner, from May 11 to 16, 2015. Chef Bühner is the owner and head chef of La Vie Restaurant in Osnabrück, Germany – the restaurant boasts three Michelin stars and 19 Gault Millau points.
Chef Bühner inspires with modern, three-dimensional aromatic cuisine: always placing each individual product’s natural flavours in the foreground; a penchant for low-temperature cooking; and the extensive range of his cuisine which he likens to a symphony rather than a collection of disparate courses.
During his residency at the Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok’s Lord Jim’s restaurant, Chef Bühner will orchestrate a symphony of innovative and avant-garde five- and seven-course dinner menus that include highlights such as slow cooked salmon served with caviar, fennel, croutons and olive oil; and blue lobster with beetroot, caviar and hazelnut foam. Both menus offer a choice of Australian wagyu with tamarind, banana and pimento; and turbot, broccoli and chickpeas with Joselito ham for the main course.
An exclusive six-course dinner menu, paired with Dreissigacker Riesling and Pinot Noir wines from Germany’s Rheinhessen region, includes marinated mackerel teriyaki with passion fruit and black sesame ice cream; and sour braised beef and pigeon served with red cabbage and celery puree.
The five- and seven-course dinner menus are available from May 11 to 15, 2015 and cost THB 4,700 and THB 5,400 respectively. Wine pairing options are also on offer. The exclusive six-course wine dinner on May 16 costs THB 6,900.
