The Cook

Fashion & food come together

Origins, at The Cook, features live show kitchens and a gourmet delicatessen with seating for 365 people, including an outdoor patio. Origins offers a unique blend of authentic dishes, comprised of fresh, natural ingredients from sustainable sources. Talented chefs, whose origins allow an innate understanding of these cuisines, carefully craft every detail of each dish. They understand that Origins is all about real food and real people. Origins is a feast for the senses, with à la carte and buffet offerings drawn from 13 kitchens, featuring the most genuine and delectable versions of dishes from around the world.

“The Cook, Origins” concept focuses on sustainability, transparency and authenticity.  The highest-quality ingredients are only sourced from growers and farms that utilize sustainable, ethical methods of production. In July, The Cook’s culinary team visited Yunnan Province, China’s most biologically and culturally diverse province. This journey led to a greater understanding of Yunnan’s local ingredients and provided a source from which to draw major inspirations. Now, we bring all the delicacies of Yunnan back to Shanghai for our beloved guests with Origins!
