Claude Pothin and the Chinese cuisine.
Born in Reunion island, the chef Claude Pothin has nonetheless a great interest towards world’s cuisine. His first trip to China was a delightful culinary trip aiming to awaken his palate to the flavors of the Chinese cuisine but also to better understand the traditions and culture of the Chinese gastronomy. Together with the chef Gaochao and our chinese market representative Shunli, the chef Claude Pothin was able to discover new flavors and traditional techniques thanks to culinary exchanges with renowned Chinese chefs and numerous tastings.
While in Shanghai, Claude Pothin discovered the traditional Sichuanese cuisine with the head chef of the restaurant “Yuxin Sichuan Dish”, but also its contemporary counterpart at “The Peacook Room”, a fine-dining restaurant blending together western techniques and local flavors. The chef Guchao, specialist of an authentic Shanghainese cuisine has also opened the doors of its restaurant located in the Relais & Chateaux “Le Sun Chine”.
