'Ni Hao Ciao' with Marta Sandini

With a journey taking her from Italy to Australia, China & Slovenia, cooking at elite restaurants at every step of the way, Chef Marta Sandini's cooking style is as iconoclastic as her life experience. From working under the tutelage of world-renowned Chef-Patron Ana Ros (of Netflix's Chef's Table fame) at her world-famous haunt Hisa Franko in Slovenia, to running an Italian restaurant in Shandong, China, and training at Heston Blumenthal's Dinner, to name just some of her wild adventures . It was her time in China, however, which provided the inspiration for her table&candle series, and her exploration of the wonderfully rarefied, yet synergistic, fusion of Italian and Chinese cookery.

For Chef Guillaume's next frontier: Caviar.

So much so that Chef Guillaume has declared that it requires a dedicated menu: "caviar goes with everything", he boldly proclaims. Whether elevating the sweetness of crab or the succulent richness of langoustine, or dancing effortlessly with tender lamb, caviar has an unmatched ability to transform dishes into culinary masterpieces.
