It’s more than just a collection of gorgeous photos and write-ups though, it’s also a collation of recipes carefully selected by chefs for ease of preparation in your own home.

A recent Gourmet Safari Dinner in the private dining room, The Gallery, at the J. W. Marriott highlighted some of the unique flavours featured in the book. YTL Corporate Executive Chef Wai Look Chow and chefs from various restaurants including Chef Matthew Ona, who had flown in from Shook! Shanghai, came together to share with guests signature dishes appearing in the book and restaurants.

Each sampling from the book was preceded with a demonstration of the recipe by YTL chefs from the restaurant the dish originated from.
In an impressive black dining room, walls were lined with enormous pages from the book, A Perennial Feast, and two stretched 24 seater tables were elegantly dressed with fresh floral arrangements awaiting the arrival of diners. Each dish was preceded by a demonstration by chefs, before being served by a line up of waiters – one for every two guests! 

The dishes brought from page to table were:

  1. You're not giving out a free copy of the book? Can't remember which blogger is doing that. I wonder if I won or not...
