One & Only Desaru Coast Introduces A Brand-New Culinary Series

Enjoy an evening of modern European gastronomy presented by Michelin-starred Chefs Andrew Walsh and Julien Royer.

Hosted at One&Only Desaru Coast’s Ember Beach Club, Michelin-starred chefs Andrew Walsh and Julien Royer are joining hands to present an inaugural edition of the all-new EMBER CURATES series, an evocative evening of modern European gastronomy happening this Saturday, 24th September 2022.

Framed by breathtaking sunsets and the sound of cascading waves from the South China Sea, Ember Beach Club, a vibrant, beach-side destination with cuisine crafted by Andrew Walsh, will play host to a show-stopping line-up of modern European specialities. From the inspired ‘Nua Irish’ cuisine from Cure Restaurant created by Chef Walsh, to Chef Royer’s refined French cuisine à la Odette Singapore, discerning gourmands are invited to savour an exciting dinner by the ocean, created by two culinary masterminds and available for ONE NIGHT ONLY.

A presentation of contemporary European cuisine at its finest, EMBER CURATES: Andrew and Friends, a 7-course menu showcasing Chef Julien Royer’s passion for French artisanal produce and the Nua Irish cuisine inspired by Chef Andrew Walsh’s heritage.

Spotlighting the finest produce and cooking styles from France and Ireland, EMBER CURATES: Andrew and Friends pay homage to the Chefs’ culinary signatures of aromatic complexity and powerful flavour combinations, with a menu inspired by their homelands, travels and experiences.

Chef Julien Royer

The acclaimed Chef Royer, who has a coveted four Michelin stars under his belt, will present his signature Claudine Bouillabaisse, a perennial favourite served at his newest French neo-brasserie concept, Claudine, in Singapore. The dish reflects Chef Royer’s distinct take on the hearty classic Provencal fish stew, where the juicy heads of the carabinero are left intact in his rendition. This encapsulates the sensational tomalley-like and distinct flavours evocative of the flavours he grew to appreciate over the many years he spent in Asia.

Chef Walsh

Chef Walsh, who leads the culinary concept at Ember Beach Club will showcase distinct Irish elements from his Michelin-starred Restaurant Cure in Singapore. Anchoring Chef Walsh’s menu highlights fresh seafood and tender meats from Ireland which reflects his heritage. Freshly harvested Gallagher oysters from Ireland, known for their meaty sweet flavour, will make an appearance, in addition to a classic Irish recipe of potato colcannon. Another great menu highlight, and a personal recommendation of Chef Walsh, is the Wagyu Beef Rossini, his rendition of the world-renowned steak dish.

Unwind at the ultra-stylish brunch by the pool, at Ember Beach Club to continue the festivities on Sunday, 25 September 2022 from 11am to 4pm. Guests will savour a mouth-watering array of crowd-pleasing favourites including signature stuffed baos, hearty tacos, woodfired flatbreads and more, to the panorama of sparkling ocean views and ambient sounds from the DJ.

Following its inaugural edition, the ANDREW & FRIENDS culinary series will continue to bring together inventive and coveted collaborations between Chef Walsh and renowned Chefs from all over the world, reflecting their respective heritages styled in their own worldly interpretations.

“Absolutely. There are plans for future editions of “Andrew & Friends”, with each edition showcasing a different type of cuisine by renowned Chefs from all over the world working alongside Chef Walsh.”

“We are also taking this timely opportunity to introduce the new ‘Ember Curates’ event series at our venue. Just like its name suggests, our valued guests can look forward to a specially curated selection of programming at Ember Beach Club, from culinary collaborations to music festivals and exclusive launches. We want to establish Ember Beach Club as the beating heart of these exciting collaborations, and continue offering distinctive experiences at our resort.” said Jerome Pichon, General Manager of One&Only Desaru Coast.
