Checked out a private dining outfit in Taipei. Trained in Japanese and french cuisine, Le Duet showcases the techniques in the 8 course menu. .
Though it's a private dining, the place is split into multiple rooms and you have your own personal space. There was another 2 groups of couples in different rooms. I understand that this segmentation of rooms is also a popular approach in HK's private dining scene? Unfortunately it makes the place a lot more like a restaurant than someone's home. However, I also recognise that its the only way to scale as well. .
Food was decent, with some hits and misses. The prawns with Red curry was a winner as well as the choux pastry with lavender cream. .
Had a good chat with the chef about Taiwan's private dining scene as well has his plans for the future. At only 25 years old, he is probably way ahead of the curve to most Singaporeans about being clear about his future plans. I have lots to catch up. :)
Our chef will create your bespoke grazing menu, cook it in your chosen space, serve each dish and clean up afterwards. All you have to do is enjoy. #springhassprung #sitbackandrelax

Because I am always looking into ways in which my food quality can improve, today I toured a new farm in Malibu. They have been running for less than a year and are not even open to the public yet. They gave me these amazing sweet potatoes to try, I saw them harvest them from the ground, and two hours later, I was making soup for my family. Can’t get fresher than that! It’s all in the details, eat organic and support your local farmers! #chefmonicacastillo #eatorganic #herselptoject #privatechef
