The launch of Starhill Culinary Studio was as cultured and refined as one would expect from the YTL Corporation. The event began at Shook! in the beautiful central courtyard of Starhill Gallery. Mr Jeremiah Tan, the Director of the new Culinary Studio, introduced a bevy of chefs, headed by the charismatic Master Chef Wai. Together, these wizards of the kitchen will create unique recipes for the culinary classes, dishes which may appear later in one of Starhill’s many restaurants. Mr. Tan pointed out that Starhill Gallery is already recognised as one of the world’s premier shopping destinations, so adding a first class culinary arts studio will only enhance its prestige.
From the Feast floor we were whisked up to Muse floor to experience the studio for ourselves. With 12,000 sq. ft. dedicated to the Culinary Studio, everything in this spacious venue feels bright and airy. There are several state-of-the-art kitchens, including areas for dining, pastry and baking and everything is beautifully designed to provide the optimal learning experience.
