Michelin Stars and Jazz All-Stars Come Out at Topaz

Les Etoilés Michelin du Topaz has brought some of France’s finest chefs to Phnom Penh to share their skills, passion and knowledge with our team, and the fruits of their labours with the city’s gourmands.

To round off a year of Les Etoilés Michelin events, Topaz is partnering with the Audi International Jazz Festival 2017 to present an evening of fine dining paired with carefully selected wines. Diners will enjoy a gourmet dinner created by two-star Michelin chef, Thierry Drapeau, to sounds of Miles Davis played by an all-star jazz ensemble from Europe’s lively jazz circuit.

Hailed as one of France’s top chefs, Thierry Drapeau won his second Michelin star at his La Chabotterie restaurant in La Vendée in 2011, five years after his first was awarded. Two years later, he was selected to become one of Relais & Châteaux’ Grand Chefs, one of just over 500 around the world.

Thierry started his first apprenticeship at the age of 16 and from there worked his way across France in a series of celebrated restaurants. His rich and inventive style reflects his gourmand journeys and is the result of years of passionate research and creation dedicated to presenting and respecting the ingredients in their purest form. For this event, two-star Chef Drapeau will take diners on a journey through flavour and form.

To compliment this dining experience Christian Brenner will lead his all-star jazz quintet with a Tribute to Miles Davis with the British all-star jazz trumpeter, singer and composer Damon Brown who has played with the likes of Sting, Eric Clapton and Bjork. Joining them will be Belgian saxophonist Stéphane Mercier, French pianist and composer Christian Brenner, who is famed for his deft touch, Bruno Schorp on bass, and percussionist Pier Paolo Pozzi.

The evening in Topaz’ ballroom starts with a cocktail reception at 6pm, December 14
