Meet Emmanuel

Speciality Chef

“In cooking, I believe perfection is found in simplicity with emphasis on natural flavours. I try to be as organic as possible and treat all produce with respect. Every dish should be a balance between flavours and textures.

Through this balance comes the perfect meal that possesses a symphonic flow.

My cuisine combines French techniques with Japanese produce”.
