Tasting history

Grand, theatrical feasts can resurrect the pomp and ceremony of vast historical empires while private meals can unlock a door into a quiet, spiritual way of life.

So many of Asia’s rich cultures and traditions find their clearest manifestation in their cuisine. Ingredients and influences from across the world have been developed by generations of everyday people offering new memories to those who experience them afresh. A truly nourishing journey into the soul of this continent is incomplete without entering wholeheartedly into fascinating, varied – and, most importantly, delicious – dishes.
