Xperience, the signature restaurant and bar at Sofitel So Singapore, welcomes French Michelin star chef Nicolas Isnard to deliver fresh and sumptuous flavours from France to Singapore. From 4 to 8 November 2014, Chef Isnard will act as Guest Chef, bringing his Mediterranean and Italian influences and serving up rustic flavours in the classic French style.

Partnering with Chef Anne-Cecile Degenne, Executive Chef of Xperience, Chef Isnard will offer a daily set four-course lunch at S$45++, daily set five-course dinner menu at S$88++ and a Saturday 6-course Gala dinner at S$148++ or S$188++ with wine pairing. An à la carte dinner menu will also be available.

Originally from the South of France, Chef Isnard acquired a taste for cooking from his Italian grandmother. Famous for mixing traditional cooking with innovation, he currently co-owns the L’Auberge de la Charme restaurant in France, which earned a Michelin star within a year of its opening in 2008. The restaurant also boasts four Gault & Millau toques.

“As the culinary capital of Asia, Singapore is the place for gastronomic adventures and new experiences. Sofitel So Singapore strives to offer our guests an exclusive interactive culinary journey of the senses. With Chef Isnard and Chef Degenne together, we are confident that they will bring an extraordinary culinary experience for Singapore’s gastronomes,” said Vincent Lelay, General Manager of Sofitel So Singapore.

Chef Isnard’s specialties include filet de boeuf, farmed chicken egg and onion soup “Contemporary Style”.

“I am excited to be collaborating with such an inspiring chef to continuously push new boundaries for Singapore’s culinary scene. Chef Isnard’s creativity and innovation will certainly elevate our guests’experience to a whole new level,” added Chef Degenne.

Guest Chef Isnard is the grand finale of Sofitel So Singapore’s Guest Chef Series. Earlier this year, Chef Degenne was joined by other internationally acclaimed Michelin star guest chefs, including Chef Yuichi Kamimura and three-Michelin star Chef Quique Dacosta.
