Chef Julien Royer Of The Michelin Two-Starred Odette To Make An Appearance At Restaurant Petrus

Chef Julien Royer Of The Michelin Two-Starred Odette To Make An Appearance At Restaurant Petrus

Restaurant Petrus at Island Shangri-La, Hong Kong welcomes Chef Julien Royer, chef and co-owner of the Michelin two-starred Odette in Singapore, as he – together with Restaurant Petrus’ very own Chef de Cuisine Ricardo Chaneton – brings diners unforgettable fares on 15 and 16 December 2016.

The accomplished Chef Royer is an advocate of delivering dishes that preserve ingredients’ integrity and flavours, and which are furnished with a modern approach using masterful techniques, a philosophy that coincides with Chef Chaneton’s.  As a result, the duo has together created an eight-course dinner menu imbued with pizzazz and exquisite flavours using the freshest catch from the ocean. Glints of palpable love and passion for food are visible throughout the menu, which includes Calamari ramen-style; Abalone, veal tendons and sticky yuzu sauce and Crispy skinned Kinki fish with charred pork belly and miso caramel. (Please refer to Appendix I for the menu.)

“I’m excited to collaborate with Chef Chaneton and the team at Restaurant Petrus,” said Chef Royer.  “At Odette, we are all about essential cuisine that brings the best ingredients around the world, combined with honest cooking, and I endeavour to provide that exact experience to local diners in Hong Kong.”

Aside from garnering the two Michelin stars for Odette, one of only six restaurants in Singapore to achieve such recognition, Chef Royer is the only Singapore-based chef and one of the headlining personalities at the 2016 Ubud Food Festival in Bali, Indonesia.  He will also serve as a mentor and judge at the San Pellegrino Young Chef 2016 Competition held in Seoul, Korea.

Chef Royer first ventured into the kitchen under the guidance of legendary Michel Bras in Laguiole, which instilled in him a respect for the integrity and purity of each ingredient in every dish.  He then moved to Durtol, where he worked for Chef Bernard Andrieux, who helped reinforce this reverence.  His culinary career then took him to London, where he was sous chef to Antonin Bonnet at the Michelin-starred The Greenhouse in Mayfair, before his four-year tenure at JAAN at Swissôtel The Stamford, Singapore in 2011.

About Odette 

Michelin two-starred Odette is a collaboration between Chef-Owner Julien Royer and The Lo & Behold Group.  Located at National Gallery Singapore, the restaurant serves modern French cuisine guided by Royer’s lifelong respect for seasonality, terroir and artisanal produce sourced from boutique producers around the world.  Odette is named in tribute to Royer’s grandmother who taught him how some of the most remarkable dishes can come from the purest ingredients and believed in ensuring that the fundamental pleasures of enjoying a meal are delivered in the most thoughtful, welcoming and hospitable manner.  This ethos has directed every aspect of the Odette experience.  The space was designed by London-based Universal Design Studio, with the overall creative direction led by Singaporean artist Dawn Ng. 

About Chef Ricardo Chaneton 

Before joining Restaurant Petrus of Island Shangri-La, Hong Kong in 2016, Chef Ricardo Chaneton was the chef de cuisine at Mirazur, the Michelin two-starred restaurant founded by Chef Mauro Colagreco in Menton, France.  Not only was Chef Chaneton in charge of the daily kitchen operation at Mirazur, he also played an essential role in the culinary development of Chef Colagreco’s restaurant in Shanghai when it opened in 2012. Together, they travelled to many places and presented Mirazur’s unique cuisine to the world. One of these epicurean tours included a sojourn at Restaurant Petrus during the Shangri-La’s 2015 International Festival of Gastronomy.
