Food For Now: At-Sunrice’s Sunday Luxe Series – Sunday Eggsperience with Chef Haikal Johari

The Sunday Luxe Series, At-Sunrice GlobalChef Academy’s signature event, will be transformed into an eggciting day of learning and tasting, where guests will be taken on epicurean journey that is themed around one of our everyday food ingredients, eggs, also considered to be an exceptional superfood and a great source of nutrients.

The Sunday Luxe Series takes place every fortnight with one of the following themes – food mission, heritage, food business and sustainability – and the upcoming installation of the Sunday Luxe Series will lend focus to food sustainability in supporting local produce by spotlighting eggs as the anchor ingredient of the event. Learn how poultry eggs and roes are used in deceptively simple to incredibly complex creations in this unforgettable dining experience, while being introduced to homegrown producers and ways to consume sustainably.

The one-day egg-themed event on Sunday, 5 December 2021, is hosted by Executive Chef Haikal Johari of one-Michelin-starred Alma by Juan Amador that serves European cuisine with an Asian twist. A Singaporean native, Chef Haikal was the founding chef of the Water Library, one of the finest culinary institutions in Thailand, and helped establish it and expand into other cities. Following a motorcycle accident in October 2015 which left him wheelchair-bound, Chef Haikal returned to Singapore to helm the acclaimed Alma by Juan Amador restaurant at the Goodwood Park Hotel.

Guests will be treated to a unique all-day dining experience where a luxurious eight-course brunch menu can be enjoyed throughout the day. Chef Haikal will be using ingredients of the highest quality to showcase the key ingredient for a gastronomic experience. Other activities include a produce market, wine workshop and cooking with eggs workshop.

Chef Haikal has created an exquisite eight-course menu that is befitting to be enjoyed any time
of the day. Using different kinds of eggs and roes that are derived from various sources as the
key ingredient, be awed by the different textures and techniques used by Chef Haikal to present
this delightful dining experience. Presented with his flair for European cuisine with an Asian
familiarity, you can expect a smorgasbord of textures and flavours, crafted from only the best
ingredients.

Spend a leisurely afternoon at the produce market to learn, taste and understand the many of facets of eggs by N&N Agriculture, Singapore’s high-tech, eco-friendly and bio-secured egg farm, and the wines of Italy and Spain by our official wine partner, Cellarmaster Wines.
