LOOK: Noma’s René Redzepi reinterprets Toyo Eatery’s kinilaw, sinigang, and silog
This is the first time that a Filipino restaurant made it on the Gelinaz shuffle list
Dec 4, 2019
For this year’s Grand Gelinaz Shuffle, a worldwide kitchen event where chefs across the globe swap recipes for one night, Toyo Eatery by Jordy Navarra made it to the shuffle list, a first for a Filipino restaurant. But the best part, the Toyo Eatery’s menu was reinterpreted by René Redzepi, chef of Danish restaurant Noma and currently second on the World’s Best Restaurants list.
Here’s a rundown of some of the Toyo Eatery dishes reinvented by Redzepi.
After the chefs received eight recipes of which they call the “matrixes,” the challenge is to undo each one of them and create eight new “spontaneously rethought” remodeled dishes.
In an Instagram story by May Navarra, chef Jordy’s wife, Redzepi said: “Recipes are not absolute. They’re just guidelines and that’s how we took them.”
