André Chiang is a man who goes by principles. And the guests at his Restaurant ANDRE in Singapore experience this pleasure day after day. Engaging all the senses with his French nouvelle cuisine, he is considered one of the best in Asia today.
In line with his own ‘Octaphilosophy’, Chiang pledges to a culinary philosophy which elevates improvisation and seasonal produce to a principle in their own rights, based on eight pillars. Each one of these is incorporated into the different courses of his menus. Chiang is committed to pure taste without added seasoning, the use of unfamiliar shapes and textures and the exploration of ingredients in an unusual way. To fully grasp the essence of ‘Octaphilosophy’, you need to experience one of André Chiang’s menus for yourself. So it’s fortunate that Chiang is taking a short trip to Salzburg – as guest chef at the Restaurant Ikarus.
