Tables Grill, in partnership with Fine Dining Lovers by S. Pellegrino and Acqua Panna, launches its first ‘Four Hands Epicurean Journey’, a recurring series of guest chef collaborations with Chef Hans Zahner, showcasing the journey of a key ingredient within an exclusive six-course menu, paired with world-class wine.
In the first episode, Chef Hans will host the Michelin-starred duo of Chef Hideaki Imahashi and Patissier Shoko Hirase from L’aube Restaurant in Tokyo, with the key ingredient of Yuzu.
Fresh Yuzu – Citrus junos or yuzu (from Japanese ユズ) (or more precisely, Citrus × junos [C. reticulata × C. ichangensis]) is a citrus fruit and plant in the family Rutaceae. It is called yuja (from Korean 유자) in Korean cuisine context. Both Japanese yuzu and Korean yuja are cognates of Chinese yòuzi (柚子), but the Chinese word means pomelo. Yuzu is called xiāngchéng (香橙) in Chinese.
Chef Hans Zahner – With years of experience working in Michelin-starred restaurants in France and around the world, most notably Chef Hans had the chance to work with the celebrated chef Alain Ducasse at Alain Ducasse Au Plaza Athénée in Hôtel Plaza Athénée – Paris.
