Presenting nature’s finest through a harmonious interplay of quality ingredients at JAAN by Kirk Westaway*, this Krug Ambassade in Singapore is where the Chef Kirk Westaway showcases his creations which belie the many layered intricacies that go into crafting them.

A clean and rich taste which was long-lasting on my palate and could only be described as gold.
What are your sources of inspiration?
I draw my inspiration from quality ingredients and the amazing produce to which we are fortunate enough to have access. We use them to form a harmonious interplay of tastes and textures on the plate while also allowing the character of each ingredient to shine on its own.
How would you describe your culinary philosophy?
Simple and genuine – almost a reflection of self – yet refined and complex in technique and presentation.
What is your culinary obsession?
My current culinary obsession is allowing each ingredient to speak for itself. This goes back to my childhood years of growing up in a small seaside town in Devon on the Southwest Coast of England, a region famous for its impeccable produce and incredible variety of products, where local growers and farmers are extremely passionate about quality and what they do. This developed in me an early and deep regard for how premium produce can be an essential part in transforming a dining experience.
With whom would you share your dream dinner?
Likely Chef Marco Pierre White when he was in his late 20s and a rising culinary personality about to receive his second Michelin star. Chef Marco is also the youngest to be awarded 3 Michelin stars, which he earned at age 33, and the first Chef owner of Harvey’s in Wandsworth Common, London. He was a mentor to celebrity Chefs Gordon Ramsay, Curtis Stone and Shannon Bennett, and an inspiration for all Chefs of our generation. I would like to ask him over dinner what continued to drive him and how he kept the passion for the culinary arts during a period of intense pressure.
Your first sip of Krug?
It was my first night in Singapore when I had just arrived and was having dinner at JAAN with a fellow Chef. I’ll always remember my first glass of Krug, the initial sip brought about a clean and rich taste which was long-lasting on my palate and could only be described as gold.
