[Upcoming Event] Four Hands Dining in Seoul Featuring Jungsik x Candlenut

|
Share on:

The first official Michelin Guide dining event in Seoul will take place over two days on July 21 and 22nd. Organized by Robert Parker Wine Advocate and Michelin Guide as part of the biennial International Michelin Chef Showcase, the two-day event will bring together the celebrated culinary minds of Chef Yim Jung-sik of ‘Jungsik’ Seoul (and New York) and Chef Malcolm Lee of ‘Candlenut’ in Singapore. The four hands event will offer local diners an exclusive chance to experience a collaboration between the two chefs who are masters of their craft in two distinctly different genres of food: contemporary Korean and Peranakan cuisine.

Touted as a pioneer of modern Korean fine dining, Chef Jungsik Yim is the head chef and owner of Jungsik Seoul and New York. Since it opened in 2009, Jungsik, Yim’s first restaurant in Seoul, broke gastronomic boundaries with his modern interpretations of traditional Korean flavors. The chef, who garnered two Michelin stars for Jungsik New York—which opened in 2011–has since gone on to add another star under his name for his Seoul restaurant in the 2017 Seoul guide.

Chef Yim trained at Aquavit and Bouley in New York and at Zuberoa and Akelarre in Spain before returning to Seoul in 2009 to open his eponymous restaurant in Cheongdam-dong, which moved to its current location in 2014.

Chef Malcolm Lee is the head chef and owner of Candlenut. As the first Singaporean recipient of the Miele Guide Scholarship, he was accepted into the At-Sunrice Globalchef Academy where he explored his Asian culinary roots.

A Peranakan, Chef Lee seeks to serve his heritage through the food he creates that showcases refined flavors and techniques that make up Candlenut’s authentic yet innovative Peranakan menu.
