Appealing to those who desire premium and exclusive experiences during their travels, Fusions by Club Med is redefining paradise by bringing together unparalleled connoisseurs from varying fields to create a series of unique enchanting experiences to delight its guests.
Ultimate Multi-Sensory Fusion Experience
Kicking off the first of its quarterly series, will be a multi-sensory culinary experience, specially curated by world-renowned Chef Jozef Youssef and musical virtuoso Tze Toh. Launching at Club Med’s Exclusive Collection at Finolhu Villas on 30 August 2018, Chef Patron and Founder of Kitchen Theory Chef Jozef and award-winning Composer-Pianist Tze Toh, will be taking guests on an amalgamation of immersive and unique experience with their carefully curated menu and accompanying musical pieces.
A 4-course menu designed by Chef Jozef himself tells of a story as the dining room transforms with dynamic projects on the surrounding furniture and each dish carefully crafted with visual elements to bring out the flavours. To complete the story, specially selected pieces by Tze will play to further elevate the guests’ experience and delight senses to influence the characteristics of the various dishes. Firing imagination and highlighting senses may boost sweetness or enhance the umami flavours of the food.
“At Club Med Finolhu Villas, we provide the platform for these first-of-a-kind collaborations to come alive. This first fusion series showcases two very different yet complementary elements – food and music that stimulates not just senses of sight and sound but taste as well. We pride ourselves in providing artisanal experiences that are exceptionally delivered for an unforgettable travel memory.” commented Xavier Desaulles, CEO of Club Med East and South Asia Pacific.
Regular guests can also look forward to a multi-sensory culinary experience, inspired by this event from September to November 2018.
