Four-Hands Dinner with Maxime Gilbert

November 9th - November 11th

Visiting us from Écriture in Hong Kong, French-born Maxime will be arriving on our shores for two exquisite four-hands dinners on 9 & 11 November with our very own Chef Gaushan.

Growing up in France, Maxime Gilbert always aspired to be a chef. Following stages at restaurants in France and Scotland, including the chef Gregory Coutanceau in La Rochelle, he began his career at the Sofitel Philadelphia in the USA, before joining the team at the three Michelin star, Meurice Paris. Over the course of five years he worked his way from commis chef to sous chef. Following a stint at Two Michelin-starred La Reserve de Beaulieu on France’s Cote d’Azur, Maxime went to work with Alleno at La Grande Francaise by Yannick Alleno at the Hotel Royal Mansour in Marrakesh, Morocco. Alleno saw talent in Maxime and entrusted him to help open STAY by Yannick Alleno at the Shangri-La Beijing in 2011. From 2013 until he started work on ÉCRITURE in September 2016, Maxime was Chef de Cuisine at Two Michelin-starred Amber restaurant at the Landmark Mandarin Oriental. From his experience and mentorship with Alleno, Maxime has come to understand the evolution of the seasons and the importance of establishing his own unique identity as a chef.
