Chef Dani Garcia of Marbella restaurant Calima is guest chef at the luxury hotel’s acclaimed French restaurant Jaan for the promotion organized by Tourism Spain and Raffles Beijing Hotel.
The culinary spectacle opens on 23 August 2011 with a Gala Dinner priced at RMB 888 including a glass of Champagne. The event is also highlighted by the attendance of the world’s top chef, legendary Ferran Adria of elBulli in Catalonia.
From 24 - 26 August 2011, Jaan will feature Chef Garcia’s set menu priced at RMB 688 for dinner, including a glass of Champagne, and RMB 288 for set lunch.
Chef García’s cuisine is renowned as “provocative, clever and fresh, notable for its fresh ingredients and impeccable preparation”.
It is also playful, with repeated references to the Andalusian Sea, sky, mountains and sand. Though he works with some meat, seafood is his forte and inspiration. His signature unadorned skewer of sea bass pays homage to beach barbecues of his Marbella childhood.
But he elevates traditional popular gastronomy to a new level, with such celebrated experiments as his take on the classic frituras.
Signature dishes extend to spring salad with olive oil clouds and ca?aillas (local snails), a two-tiered "fried" sole in miso with slow-roasted tomato, and passion fruit tocino de cielo.
A ‘Michelin Star Chef Room Package’ is available during the promotion, for any two nights from 22 – 27 August 2011.
