Corner House is doing its first-ever four-hands collaboration with chef Kristian Baumann of one-Michelin-starred restaurant 108 in Copenhagen.
Not much is known about the menu as of now, but expect to see interesting dishes from Baumann, who cut his teeth at two-Michelin-starred Noma before opening his own restaurant, 108. Less than a year since its opening, Baumann scored a star in 2017.
Corner House’s chef Jason Tan will be championing his gastro-botanica cuisine here, a fitting partnership with Baumann’s own foraging and fermentation-led culinary philosophy.

The Series will make its first stop at The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore with a six-hand collaboration between chefs Paul Lau of Tin Lung Heen, Gordon Cuo of Lai Jeen and Cheung Siu Kong of Summer Pavilion.

Nami’s menu focuses on traditional Japanese cuisine, and in this upcoming collaboration with the Niseko-based Sushi Shin, it will be showcasing the many aspects of Edomae-style sushi.
While Sushi Shin has not a Michelin star yet, it shares the same menu as sister restaurant Sushi Miyakawa in Sapporo which has achieved the highly-revered three star ranking last year. Both restaurants are led by chef-owner Masaki Miyakawa, who has extensive experience with sushi and French cuisine.
In this two-week pop-up at Nami, Miyakawa is bringing Sushi Shin’s culinary team to present a 14-course nigiri menu ($165++ per person) and a more elaborate 19-course omakase menu ($380++ per person) for lunch and dinner.
There’s plenty of time to enjoy this culinary exchange. But if you want to see Miyakawa in person preparing sushi be sure to get a spot by the counter from 2nd to 4th November.

Brasserie Les Saveurs at The St Regis Singapore will be under the helm of Swiss chefs Andreas Caminada of the three-Michelin-star restaurant Schloss Schauenstein and Marcel Skibba of one-Michelin-star IGNIV.
Caminada is owner of both Schloss Schauenstein and IGNIV, both fine-dining establishments with a focus on simple and familiar ingredients presented with finesse. Caminada is also one of the youngest chefs every to achieve a three-Michelin star status at the age of 34.
The menu in this take-over will see 17 dishes spread over three-courses and meant to be shared between diners. You’ll want to save space for petit fours, presented as a ‘candy store’ buffet experience.
Not to worry if you’ve missed this. Head down to Kuala Lumpur: both chefs will be carrying their act on to The St Regis Kuala Lumpur from 8 to 10 November.

Nouri’s chef Ivan Brehm brings diners deeper insight into his culinary heritage through a four-hand collaboration with chef Rafa Costa e Silva of one-Michelin-starred restaurant Lasai from Brazil.
While Brehm’s crossroads cuisine at Nouri takes inspiration from Brazilian fare, Silva offers an exploration of seasonal produce from his country with his farm-to-table dishes. Expect to see fruit and vegetables only found in Rio de Janeiro -- some even procured from his own farm located in the mountain areas of Vale das Videiras.
A seven-course dinner is available on both days at $260++ per person and additional $130++ for wine pairing. But if you have time to spare, go for a five-course lunch menu on 15 November at $170++ per person with $90++ for wines.
