The prominent Danish chef will be in Singapore next month for his first-ever overseas culinary showcase.
Gourmands spending the festive season in the Lion City should mark their calendars for early December, when acclaimed Danish chef Henrik Jyrk will fly in to kick off a monthslong collaboration with the Mount Faber Leisure Group. Jyrk rose to fame after stints at top Copenhagen restaurants The Paul and Michelin-starred Atelier Crenn, and has since served as a two-time guest judge on MasterChef Denmark. Jyrk is known for reinterpreting Nordic cuisine with an Asian twist — his unique creations will be available at Mount Faber’s Dusk Restaurant & Bar and Cable Car Sky Dining for a limited time only.
Running from December 3–11, “Dusk Presents: Dining by Jyrk – Chef’s Menu” offers a six-course gourmet experience while Jyrk and his four-man culinary team are in town. Diners can sample kartofler og kaviar, a potato-and-clam salad made from confit potatoes that features oscietra caviar and sansho pepper foam; and a main course of Dansk økologisk tværreb, or organic free-range beef short rib braised for 18 hours and accompanied by pickled Japanese plums, salted prawns, and caramelized onions. Guests even have the chance to meet the chef and receive a framed photo with him.
Meanwhile, “Dusk Presents: Nordic-Asian Menu by Chef Henrik Jyrk” is a four-course special available from December 12, 2022 to March 31, 2023. Featured dishes include mackerel soaked in gooseberry-infused clam dashi, and andesteg, or roasted duck breast with Danish cherries and an Indonesian pepper sauce. The meal also includes æbleskiver — a pan-fried Danish takoyaki-like dish, filled with a vanilla and apple compote on this occasion. Patrons who book a table on New Year’s Eve will be treated to a selection of amuse-bouche, party packs, and a live band to ring in 2023 in style.
For something different, guests can even board the Singapore Cable Car and enjoy a four-course Nordic-Asian Cable Car Sky Dining menu in the comfort of their private cabin, soaking up the panoramic views as they glide 100 meters over Keppel Harbour on the way to and from Sentosa. Available from December 12, 2022 through March 2023, the hourlong journey will be preceded by Danish appetizers and welcome drinks at the Arbora Bistro at Mount Faber Peak.
