This year marks Chef Hiroyuki’s fourth visit to The Sherwood Taipei. During his 2009 visit, he delivered the ultimate Japanese daintiness with the “Michelin Three-Star Feast.” In 2010, his “Sea of Ice” theme combined top-quality rice from the Niigata Prefecture in Japan with the freshest seafood from the icy waters of the region. In 2014, Chef Hiroyuki took center stage at the newly-renovated KOUMA and invited guests to sample his “One-Heart Feast,” which featured a range of first-class western like Oyster, black truffle, caviar, foie gras, and champagne, along with Taiwan local ingredients like Cherry Duck from Yi-lan and ingredients from Japan such us lotus root, pufferfish soft roe, and Japanese oyster. To mark the 25th anniversary of The Sherwood Taipei, Chef Hiroyuki returns to KOUMA to offer guests an opportunity to experience the highlights of his talents and his unique partnership with Chef Wachi Isao.
