Ben Dayag Guest Chef at Montreux Palace

Have you ever tried Japanese Peruvian Fusion Cuisine? Well, until recently I hadn’t either. This week, however,  I was lucky enough to be invited to the Fairmont Montreux Palace Hotel where Ben Dayag, Executive Chef of the Nikkei Nine Restaurant in Hamburg is the Guest Chef from 19th – 24th March 2018.

I had really been looking forward as I really love both Japanese food and Peruvian food – but I was intrigued as to how the flavours would combine. I was in for a total treat as not only was the food a feast for the eyes, it was absolutely delicious too.

Spinach Salad with Crispy Calamari

The dishes were light, clean fresh but with a hidden depth and there were a few surprises along the way too! For example, beneath the spinach leaves in the bowl above, lay the lightest, crispiest calamari in a tempura batter that you could ever imagine – total perfection!

There were three of us tasting the menu and we decided to share a combination of starters, main courses and desserts so that we could each get to taste all the different flavours and cooking methods.

Koji Cod with Chimichurri with Ginger and Parsley (main course)

All the dishes we tried were packed with flavour and beautifully cooked. I really love fish and the Koji cod (above) was cooked to perfection and absolutely divine. I can’t wait to try it again!

We were also lucky enough to meet with Ben whilst we were at the Montreux Palace Hotel too. Having worked at NOBU in Las Vegas and Morimoto in Philadelphia, the American Chef is now based in Hamburg’s NIKKEI NINE Restaurant and we met him at the end of our delicious lunch.

We also got to taste the wonderful desserts that Ben and his team had created. Fruity and light these were full of flavour and I particularly liked the raspberry sorbet with wasabi, which was delicious and cooling but with a hint of heat at the same time.

I thoroughly enjoyed this amazing lunch which will be one of those culinary memories that I will remember for a long, long time. Every dish was so different but so tasty. If you are able to take this opportunity to enjoy the NIKKEI NINE Guest Week at the Montreux Palace Hotel, I certainly urge you to go and enjoy! I’m sure you will love it!
