Following on from the success of their first edition that featured Chefs Rishi Naleendra and Andrew Walsh and Sun Kim, the latest Colombo Supper Club will feature the creations of Singaporean chef Damian D’Silva, flown down by SriLankan Airlines.
The event will be held at 7 p.m. on 20 and 21 May at Fifty7, at the new Jetwing Colombo 7. With very limited seats available, contact 0772300038 for further details and to avoid disappointment.
Chef Damian D’Silva is devoted to protecting the unique jigsaw that is Singapore’s culinary heritage. The nation state has a history, and a cuisine, that speaks of influences from across the globe, reflected in the creations at D’Silva’s restaurant, ‘Immigrants’. D’Silva went from being an aviation industry engineer in America to a chef after training in Italy and France. Add this to his Portuguese and Peranakan ancestry to understand D’Silva’s dedication to celebrating diverse flavours and origins.
Chef Damian serves up dishes from the major ethnicities of Singapore – Chinese, Eurasian, Indian, Malay and Peranakan. The small plates were commonly eaten at homes but are fast disappearing today. Each dish has a story to tell; however most restaurants don’t serve them and others don’t take the same painstaking effort to prepare them as chef D’Silva does. Pairing heritage dishes served ‘tapas’ style with an eclectic range of beverages curated by Wineworld, Colombo Supper Club #5 aims to create a complete experience of dining, history and urban lifestyle.
