André Chiang is the only Chinese-born chef listed in the World’s Best 50 Restaurants.
His Netflix film, “André and His Olive Tree,” is the top-grossing documentary in Taiwan for 2021.
He’s now devoting himself to shaping the next generation of young chefs in Taiwan.
At Restaurant André in Singapore, nothing was left to chance, and nothing was out of place.
The menus were hardback novels inscribed with Chef Chiang’s sketches. Chairs were placed at a perfect 45-degree angle to the table. Dishes were presented in line with Chiang’s trademark Octaphilosophy and represented his chosen eight elements of food: texture, memory, pure, terroir, unique, salt, south, and artisan. Food lovers from as far away as Germany and Brazil would fly to Singapore for a taste of Restaurant André’s S$450 ($333) degustation menu.
