Phuket’s trendy new RE KÁ TA Club on the Beach will host an exclusive culinary evening on April 6th with Jordi Roca. The youngest of the internationally renowned Roca brothers and a celebrity of the culinary world, Chef Jordi is known for his innovative and inherently creative style in desserts and for touching personal emotion through cuisine.
El Celler de Can Roca – owned by the three Roca brothers, including older brothers Joan and Josep – has held three star status in the Michelin Guide since 2009.
Among many accolades, in 2011 El Celler de Can Roca was voted second best restaurant in the world by Restaurant Magazine. In December 2011 the Restaurant appeared on the UK television series MasterChef: The Professionals. The Roca brothers are also authors of five of their own culinary books and have paved the way for a type of cuisine that is committed to research and an avant-garde approach.
Courted by the culinary media throughout the world, Jordi often breaks down the floral notes in famous scents, and incorporates them all into different aspects of a single dish, recreating the ‘perfume’.
“The culinary experience is interesting because it will be attached to your previous memories – tied to your memories from childhood – so what you feel may be different from what your neighbour is feeling,” said Chef Jordi. “Cooking is not just about transforming ingredients but about preserving the ingredient’s natural flavour.”
Chef Jordi will create a custom menu for the exclusive dinner, promising an unforgettable experience for those in attendance.
“There are two aspects of flavour combinations that are important to me,” said Chef Jordi. “I like traditional combinations but done with new interpretations. But also the balance is important to me. Salt, sweet, sour, savoury. I want pieces of each in my dishes, with a little bitter on the tongue.”
“At Boathouse and RE KÁ TA we continually strive to bring amazing dining experiences to Kata, so to welcome the globally renowned Jordi Roca to RE KÁ TA is a huge honor. We are all looking forward to him sharing his passion for food with those lucky guests able to join this event and to him demonstrating some of his legendary skills and techniques to our culinary teams as well. It will no doubt be a very special moment in time…one which will resonate for years to come in one’s memory due simply to the caliber of this event, combined with the backdrop of beautiful Kata beach” said Marie-Laure Fleury, General Manager to Boathouse and RE KÁ TA.
RE KÁ TA Seafood Beachfront Restaurant was also recognized with the Award of Excellence in Wine Spectator Restaurant Wine List Awards.
RE KÁ TA Club on the Beach opened late December, is offering a new beachfront destination for Phuket visitors to eat, drink, swim spa, shop and chill out to great tunes from morning to midnight (and beyond).
RE KÁ TA beach club was designed by Fredo Taffin, the renowned Bali based architect and landscape designer, who created the concept as part of Boathouse Phuket’s renovation, a project which cost USD 6 million in transformation.
RE KÁ TA beach club’s fabulous new facilities make it a perfect one stop shop for a relaxing day out, a hip and happening night out – or both – where you can enjoy the “James Bond Martini Lifestyle” all day and night.
