A Culinary Extravaganza with Michelin-starred Chef Rikard Hult & Chef Marc Viala from L'Epicurien, France at Taylor's University

In January 2024, Taylor’s Culinary Institute (TCI) had the honor of hosting two distinguished Michelin-starred Chefs, Chef Rikard Hult and Chef Marc Viala, from L'Epicurien, a renowned restaurant in Albi, France. This marked a significant milestone in TCI's commitment to providing unparalleled culinary experiences for our students.

On January 24th, Truffles Restaurant in Taylor’s University Lakeside Campus came alive with the aromas and flavors of Michelin-starred cuisine as both Chefs prepared an unforgettable dinner with TCI students. The evening welcomed about 40 guests, including Chef Jean Michel Loubatieres, the Founder & Executive Chef at Dalí by Chef Jean, returning guests from past events, and families of our students who had interned at L’Epicurien restaurant.

The dinner featured an exquisite menu meticulously crafted to showcase French gastronomy, such as using classic French cheese - Comté cheese with black truffles in a ‘Croque Monsieur’ to kick off the dining experience. Chef Rikard and Chef Marc also served Venison for the main course, paired with ‘Grand Veneur’ sauce, also known as huntsman sauce in France. The dinner ended with a Pavlova served with sea buckthorn sorbet that was sweet and refreshing.

The guests expressed their satisfaction for the well-curated menu, expert wine pairings, and the meticulous service rendered by our dedicated students from the Diploma in Hotel Management programme.
