On Saturday, 24 September 2022, Ember Beach Club at One&Only Desaru Coast is proud to present the inaugural edition of the all-new Ember Curates series, featuring a collaborative dinner showcase from Michelin-starred chefs Andrew Walsh and Julien Royer.

Ember Beach Club, a beach-side destination with cuisine crafted by Chef Andrew Walsh, will play host to a show-stopping line-up of modern European specialties. From the inspired ‘nua Irish’ cuisine from Cure Restaurant created by Chef Walsh, to Chef Royer’s refined French cuisine à la Odette Singapore, guests are invited to savor an exciting dinner by the ocean, created by two culinary masterminds and available for one night only. 

Spotlighting the finest produce and cooking styles from France and Ireland, Ember Curates: Andrew and Friends pays homage to the Chefs’ culinary signatures of aromatic complexity and powerful flavour combinations, with a menu inspired by their homelands, travels, and experiences. 

In addition to items like Hand Dived Scallop ‘Au Naturel’ and Yuzu T’art, Chef Royer will present his signature Claudine Bouillabaisse, a favorite at his newest French neo-brasserie concept, Claudine. The dish reflects Chef Royer’s distinct take on the hearty classic Provencal fish stew, where the juicy heads of carabinero prawns are left intact. This encapsulates the sensational tomalley-like and distinct flavors evocative of the tastes that he has grown to appreciate over the many years he spent in Asia.

Meanwhile, Chef Walsh will showcase distinct Irish elements from his Michelin-starred Cure Restaurant in Singapore. Anchoring Chef Walsh’s menu are fresh seafood and tender meats from Ireland, key ingredients in his kitchen that reflect his proud heritage. Freshly harvested Gallagher oysters from Ireland, known for their sweet flavor, will make an appearance, in addition to a classic Irish recipe of potato colcannon. Another sumptuous menu highlight, and a personal recommendation of Chef Walsh, is the Wagyu Beef Rossini. 

For overnight guests of One&Only Desaru Coast, an ultra-stylish brunch by the pool will be taking place at Ember Beach Club to continue the festivities on Sunday, 25 September 2022, from 11am to 4pm. Guests will savor an array of crowd-pleasing favorites that include signature stuffed baos, hearty tacos, woodfired flatbreads, and more, to the panorama of sparkling ocean views and ambient sounds from the DJ.

Limited seats are open for advanced reservations for dinner on Saturday, 24th September 2022. An unforgettable escape from city life and epicurean festivities await at One&Only Desaru Coast with special room packages for overnight stays available for booking here.
