We stayed at Suvretta House earlier this year in January for the St Moritz Gourmet Festival that takes place every winter, and concluded with a fabulous party at Badrutt Palace. St Moritz is a curious little place that pretty much comes alive for two seasons – the winter and the summer. It’s also the city […]

A lovely way to start at Jaan Singapore with this beetroot meringue, smoked eel, Devonshire cheddar cheese and buckwheat pancake, fish and chips, artichoke roll. We finally got to check out one of the best of British cooking in Singapore at Jaan restaurant. The menu at Jaan by Kirk Westaway, a one Michelin-starred restaurant and #32 on […]

I contributed to this month’s July 2019 Travel + Leisure Southeast Asia’s Food Issue on where we eat in Hong Kong. It is by no means limited to this list, but I had to cramp everything into 4 full pages with a balance of local, western and fine dining spots. There are many other favourites, […]

I haven’t been back to Italy since I left in 2006, then with a heavy heart and began a new chapter in life in Beijing. I forgot how much I miss the food, the fresh coffee and the beautiful produce and friendly wildly gesturing people. We ate wild caught sustainable seafood daily, and it was […]

I haven’ t been big on the festive celebrations where everyone seem to go all out to party like there’s no tomorrow. Since going through cancer treatment and the gift that won’t stop giving – the reverberating side effects of chronic pain – my body feels broken from the inside out, I have been trying […]

Last year, we made our friend a couple of hours from Amsterdam to Anvers in Belgium, on the insistence of my husband to have dinner at his friend chef Frédéric Chabert’s restaurant Dome. Fred was formerly at Petrus in Hong Kong and returned to Europe to open his own restaurant. Dome is a beautiful intimate […]

When I was still working at the corporate office for Four Seasons, this was the newly acquired property in the French Riveria that everyone was really excited about.  I am grateful I got to visit and have lunch at La Veranda. We made a day trip down from Monaco, a 20minutes drive down the coast […]

I am so late with posts. I’ve gone and returned from France twice now and didn’t get down to writing about Jamin. Late last year, we had lunch at this wonderful restaurant helmed by chef Hervé Rodriguez. It’s also the original location of the first restaurant of the late chef Joel Robuchon. He opened Jamin in 1981 […]

We’ve been here several times now and love the neighbourhood. We’ve dined at the brasserie a few times as well as the 2 Michelin starred Thoumieux restaurant upstairs. It’s where they serve breakfast every morning too. As for the food, it’s definitely on our go to. Brasserie for simple quick fare and the Michelin restaurant […]

Look up. View lying on my terrace. Banyan tree roots are always magical to look at. My second Amaryllis bulb starting to grow. World’s youngest three Michelin starred guest chef chef Max Alajmo of La Calandre served up some amazing dishes at Otto e Mezzo Hong Kong. Beet root sorbet in his saffron risotto with […]
