Hilton Beijing Wangfujing Presents "An Intimate Dinner With The Stars"
A team of three-Michelin-starred chefs & celebrity chefs takes Beijing by storm
May 04, 2009
BEIJING - Continuing the excitement of the successful grand opening celebration, the award-winning Hilton Beijing Wangfujing tempts you with a once-in-a-lifetime event featuring the stars of the culinary universe on June 8, 2009!
Hosted by Hilton's own Executive Chef Yu Xiang Gu, the magical hands of five of the world's most internationally acclaimed Michelin-starred culinary masters will create a dining experience nothing less than a highly celebrated gourmet gathering. From Italy to France, Germany to USA and all the way to Colombia, the renowned star chefs will take you by storm for one exclusive night only in Beijing.
On this evening of gastronomic extravaganza at the Hilton Beijing Wangfujing's Lantern Ballroom, each chef will create a single and unique mouthwatering ‘masterpiece', as part of a six-course epicurean journey. A champagne reception will pop the night off to a grand start. To top it all off, Master of Wine Dr. Ron Georgiou and resident Sommelier Peter Teng has carefully chosen an exquisite selection of wines to complement the evening.
General Manager Nils-Arne Schroeder proudly remarked, "It started out as a small dream to gather three-Michelin-starred chefs to create a gourmet evening no one else has ever experienced before. We are so excited to bring this dream to reality. This ties in perfectly with the vision of the culinary teams at Hilton Hotels in Asia Pacific who constantly seek to turn the ordinary to extraordinary."
The star-studded line-up of chefs is definitely one for the books:
Heinz Beck has won numerous accolades for his culinary skill; he is arguably Italy's most famous chef. Born in Germany, his restaurant, La Pergola, is housed in the Rome Cavalieri. Heinz, a three-Michelin-starred chef, specializes in Mediterranean cuisine and regularly creates new dishes to add to his already extensive menu. His inspiration is anything and everything - from museum paintings to Italy's mountain ranges.
Heinz Winkler was the youngest ever chef, at the age of 32, to receive the three-Michelin-stars. He also was the first Italian chef to receive three-Michelin-stars and has now his own hotel and restaurant in the southern part of Germany.
Annie Féolde was the first woman in Italy to be awarded the three-Michelin-stars; she works both in Tuscany and Tokyo. Her biography reads like a fairy tale: a little girl who grew up along the Promenade des Anglais in the south of France, and then discovered Tuscany and made it her kingdom.
David Burke blazes across occupations as a chef, artist, entrepreneur, and inventor; he is one of the leading pioneers in American cooking. His fascination with ingredients and the art of the meal has fueled a career marked by creativity, critical acclaim, and the introduction of revolutionary products and cooking techniques. He now owns 8 restaurants in New York City and throughout the United States under his own brand name.
Jorge Rausch worked for three years with the well-known Chef Raymond Blanc in his eponymous restaurant Le Manoir Aux Quatre Saisons which has two- Michelin-stars. Jorge has now turned his restaurant in Bogota, Colombia into the latest award-winning gourmet icon of South America.
A historic gastronomic adventure that no ‘Bon Vivant' should miss! "An Intimate Dinner with the Stars" promises to be a ‘once-in-a-lifetime' culinary event at RMB 1,900 + 15% per person, cocktail reception starts at 6:30 pm at The Library. Only a limited number of seats are available! Reservations can be made through Tel +86 (0) 10 5812 8888 ext. 8402.
