Guest Chefs at Restaurant Ikarus
Guest Chef July 2013: Richard Ekkebus
The hotel The Landmark Mandarin Oriental is based in Queen’s Road in the centre of Hong Kong. Richard Ekkebus works here as the chef of the exquisite French restaurant Amber as well as being responsible for all the kitchens at the luxury hotel in his role as Culinary Director.
Ekkebus was born in the Netherlands and learnt the art of haute cuisine during his time in France in particular. “I developed a deep appreciation of the French people and their pride for their fertile land and everything they plant and harvest in the fields”. This appreciation is reflected in his innovative dishes which use only the finest and freshest ingredients from all over the world, paired with ingredients from Hong Kong. The Michelin Guide has honoured his innovative interpretations of classic top quality French cuisine with 2 stars.
Each month at Salzburg’s two Michelin-starred Restaurant Ikarus, a different top international chef creates the menu. For this globally unique concept, Hangar-7 executive chef Martin Klein visits the cream of the crop, takes a look behind the scenes of haute cuisine, and is let in on some exciting culinary secrets. “Culinary Heights at Ikarus” offers a unique glimpse into the world of high-end cuisine and provides an interesting portrait of each guest chef, their culinary philosophy, and the food culture of their country.
