9780714871158: Octaphilosophy: The Eight Elements of Restaurant André

The culinary philosophy of premiere chef André Chiang, whose Restaurant André is in the top 50 world's best restaurants list.

Headed up by chef-owner André Chiang, Restaurant André's menu centres around his 'Octaphilosophy' taking into account Chiang's eight elements of gastronomy: salt, texture, memory, purity, terroir, south, artisan and uniqueness.

Octaphilosophy, explores one year in his restaurant. Including snacks, mains and sweets over each season, and the stories and processes behind each dish, Chiang will share his unique approach to food combining the technical precision of Asian gastronomy with the Western culinary preference for produce, producers and seasonality.

This volume includes 150 recipes, 95 full dishes, 22 fermented juices and 33 basic recipes.

Heavily illustrated with photos of the working kitchen, and the final results, Octaphilosophy will be one of the first cookbooks to capture the emerging gastronomic scene in Asia and its leading proponent.

About the Author:

André Chiang was born in Taiwan and moved from Japan to France at age 15. He worked in several Michelin-starred restaurants there, training under Pierre Gagnaire, Joël Robuchon and Alain Ducasse. In 2010, he moved to Singapore to open his 30-seat Restaurant André, which is on the World's 50 Best list. In Singapore he also is invested in the restaurants Burnt Ends and Bincho, RAW in Taipei, and Porte 12 in Paris.

Lotta Jörgensen wrote the narrative text in Octaphilosophy with André Chiang. She is co-founder of creative gastro-brand consultants Fool Agency and co-editor-in-chief of award-winning gastronomic magazine Fool, with her husband, photographer Per-Anders Jörgensen. Lotta is also an art director specialising in magazine design and brand identity.
