Langkawi’s luxurious resort, The Datai, continues on with its latest edition of the Chef Series programme with one of Malaysia’s best chefs, Darren Chin. Known for combining French classical techniques with local Asian ingredients and flavours, Chef Darren has enjoyed acclaim through his two restaurants DC Restaurant and Bref located in the township of TTDI.
From 1 to 3 November, Chef Darren will be serving a specially crafted six-course menu, presenting his signature culinary style using some of the best ingredients available. Darren Chin is a supporter of la jeune cuisine, or young cuisine, that is unpretentious and focused on the freshest ingredients that are available daily. The menu will include yuzu meringue with fresh crab and an apple and lemon gel; wild Atlantic turbot, quinoa with zucchini, orange and corn cream; and butternut squash sorbet served with grapefruit granite, hazelnuts and lime zest, all selections from some of Chef Darren’s list of signature dishes.
Served in The Datai’s indoor and outdoor venue, The Dining Room, the six-course dinner will be served every evening for all three days of the Chef Series residency. The menu also comes with the option of a wine pairing, which also includes selections from the champagne house Dom Pérignon, as Chef Darren is an appointed ambassador of Dom Pérignon in Malaysia.
As part of his residency, Chef Darren will also give a cooking demonstration by The Beach Club, as well as an exclusive cooking class and lunch programme at The Datai’s cooking school, The Dapur. Guests who choose to join the class will get a hands on gastronomic experience with the chef himself where they will create and enjoy the dishes they make.
Chef Darren Chin joins an acclaimed list of chefs who have cooked for The Datai’s Chef Series, including Michel and Sébastien Bras and most recently the Australian-based, London-born Chef Nelly Robinson, who created a unique menu based on fairy tales and childhood memories.
