I was extremely excited and honoured when David from The Gastronaut Diary invited me to the recent “Jumping Table” event. I read and got to know about this makan club through David’s blog when he posted their wonderful dining experience at Red Star Restaurant cooked by Masterchefs Sin Leong and Hooi Kok Wai. I was so very fascinated by the classic high-end Cantonese dishes from yesteryears (which David described as the golden 60s) recreated by the 2 masterchefs and wished I were part of the extraordinary gastronomical experience.
“The Jumping Table” is an epicurean club that focuses on such dining experiences which are specially planned and truly one-of-a-kind. Each event is unique and seats are limited to ensure quality. So, you could imagine my excitement when David dropped me an email invitation to join him and his like-minded friends last Saturday for a traditional Malay Wedding feast cooked by retired Chef Arni who used to run a well-known eatery at Far East Plaza, Scotts Road. Who in the right epicurean frame of mind would turn down such a dining invitation? I would not mind rescheduling all my appointments just to attend this wedding kenduri and to meet the Gastronaut himself! :D
