Art At Curate To Feature Chef Tanja Grandits From Two Michelin-Starred Restaurant Stucki
From April 27 to May 3, chef Tanja Grandits will be taking a break from running her two Michelin-starred Restaurant Stucki in Basel, Switzerland. She'll be here in Singapore instead to join hands with Curate’s resident chef Benjamin Halat for the 10th instalment of Art at Curate.
Why should you make a reservation you may ask? Simply because chef Grandits is Switzerland’s most decorated female chef who just added the Michelin Switzerland Female Chef Award to her long list of accolades last year.
And there’s her jaw-dropping creations, too, which are a harmonious blend of flavours and textures in beautiful monochromatic themes. In fact, the Michelin Guide Switzerland 2018 inspectors raved about her food, saying, “The food it serves—choice ingredients used in punchy yet sophisticated combinations refined with the generous use of herbs and spices—bears the inimitable signature of Tanja Grandits.”
She’ll showcase her signature touch in unforgettable four-course lunch and eight-course dinner experiences that will put her signature creations on the table alongside chef Halat’s contemporary dishes.

Making your mouth water will be her beef tartare with beetroot, coffee oil and shiso, which she describes as “a perfect match of dark red hues, texture and taste”, as well as Hokkaido scallop with dill dashi and pistachio; egg yolk with cardamom butter and mango polenta; and Atlantic cod fish with green tea hollandaise and peas.

Chef Halat will match her delicious offerings with modern dishes that draw inspiration from his German roots. He says, “As chef Grandits is a fellow German, I am excited to showcase my best interpretations to her as well.” These include Kyoto red carrot with barley and coriander; glazed pork cheek prepared goulash style, offset with pickles; and sea buckthorn berry sherbet with Bavarian gin espuma and lemon verbena.
