Shangri-La Hotel, Kuala Lumpur presents “From Farm to Table” cuisine by Chef Rémy Lefebvre at Lafite.
Farm fresh vegetables, seasonal and sustainable ingredients are the essence of his latest creations at Lafite. Chef de cuisine Rémy hand-picks fresh vegetables from Cameron Highlands, and seafood from sustainable sources.
He has introduced the 2016 Summer Lunch menu using fresh and seasonal produce. Diners can choose to have a two-course lunch at RM98 nett or a three-course one at RM145 nett. They can begin with the Kingfish Ceviche, have the main course of Duck Egg & Crab buckwheat crepe with mushrooms and butter sauce and dessert of Lemon Frozen Tart, meringue and sorbet.
He has also created an eight-course Chef’s Tasting Menu, Seasonal Tasting Menu (4 courses) and Vegetarian Tasting Menu (4 courses). He works culinary magic with this local produce, blending them with imported, seasonal ingredients.
The French chef has 15 years of fine dining experience under his belt in Michelin-starred restaurants and five-star hotels in Europe, Hong Kong, India, the Middle East, China and Singapore.
“The kitchen is not wholly French. It’s influenced by where I have lived, travelled and eaten, but the techniques remain French. The menu will feature more seafood, fish and vegetable dishes, with less meat, butter and cream,” he said.
Born in France, Chef Rémy has had his culinary education in Spain where he also worked as chef de cuisine in 2005, at the iconic Restaurant Reno in Barcelona, the first restaurant in Spain to receive 2 Michelin stars.
He was head chef and owner of Restaurant Artkuisine in Barcelona, where he showed a unique flair for French tradition and global inspiration.
His most recent post was as Executive Chef at El Mero Mero in Singapore. He was named Rising Chef of the Year by Cuisine & Wine Asia Magazine.
From 2012 to 2013, Chef Rémy was chef de cuisine at Exo Restaurant in Shangri-La Mumbai, a modern European restaurant and lounge.
