Burton-Race and Home Restaurants’ executive chef Nguyen Gia Thien will each heat up a frying pan at Home Moc to prepare four dishes, paired with wines from French winery E.Guigal selected by Celliers. In an East meets West culinary experience, Burton Race’s European concoctions will include rock lobster tail with cauliflower panna cotta, brown butter, rum and raisin, and smoked “H’Mong” chicken with green tea leaf, crispy green sticky rice and black mushroom jus will be among Thien’s Vietnamese creations.

As part of a special two-day, one-night cruise on Paradise Elegance from May 3-4, Burton-Race will craft the entire eight-course menu complemented by wines from Chilean winery Concha Y Toro and followed by live music cognac, wine and whisky at the vessel’s piano lounge.

Highlights of the dinner range from gnocchi with creamy herb sauce, shavings of parmesan and truffle to rack of lamb with lamb shank tortellini, lettuce, morels and mustard seeds. A seafood lunch buffet and pre-dinner cocktails at Cua Van floating village will also be served as part of the cruise dubbed “Haute Cuisine on the High Sea – Chapter 2.”

Burton-Race will team up with Vietnamese celebrity Iron Chef Nguyen Thanh Tung at Home Finest Saigon, where each will preparefour European and Vietnamese dishes, including duck breast honey, citrus, fennel puree and lychee, and braised crab claw and Mekong delta rice noodle soup in coconut, paired with wines from Italy’s Banfi winery.

“When I created the menu for President Cruises, that debuted November last year on Halong Bay, and trained their chefs and food and beverage staff, I was so struck by the country’s natural beauty, people and energy I vowed to return, and soon,” said Burton-Race. “It’ll be incredible to return, working with some of the country’s most talented local chefs and peppering the fine dining scene with a distinct European flavor.”

In 2000, Burton-Race took over the Landmark London hotel. After notching up two Michelin stars at the Landmark, he then opened the New Angel restaurant and hotel in Devon that was awarded a Michelin star in 2005.

Mr. Hong Nhat Nguyen - Representative of Vietnam Paradise Group said: “The series ofhigh-end culinary events of Paradise Vietnam is not only a unique dining experience for patrons to meet and enjoy aesthetically pleasing dishes that utilize local cuisine, we also aim to take Vietnamese cuisine to the world stage. Vietnam will become the new destination of high-end cuisine on the world map, and the ‘kitchen’ of international star chefs.”
