Exclusive Interview with Chef Nobu Matsuhisa

Indulging in cuisine from around the world is an adventure in and of itself. Rolling Grace had the privilege of sitting down with world-renowned Chef Nobu Matsuhisa to learn how his passion for fresh and locally sourced ingredients has helped him blend cultures and create a culinary legacy that spans continents.

As an ingredient-driven professional with a keen palate for all things delicious, Chef Nobu has made it his life's work to keep innovating and providing his guests with top-quality meals. However, before any new culinary creation hits the menu, he pays close attention to his patrons' preferences, ensuring that their expectations are met.

It's no surprise that Chef Nobu has been inspired by his surroundings, including the unique spices and herbs he finds in local markets. Recently, during a trip to Singapore, he discovered a new dish that he simply couldn't resist adding to his repertoire: chili pepper crab. This delicate yet flavourful dish has soon become his muse ever since.

At Nobu, the focus is always on quality and consistency over fleeting trends. Even though catering to a broad clientele can be challenging, Chef Nobu never deviates from his high standards, instead choosing to create and refine dishes that stay true to the restaurant's ideals. He believes that the kitchen is the heart of the house and that each plate is a reflection of his passion.

The staff at Nobu works tirelessly to ensure the restaurant remains a staple in the industry. Thanks to their extensive training and understanding of Chef Nobu's style, they act as gatekeepers, ensuring the quality of the restaurant's dishes stays up to scratch. While the chef has strict expectations, he wants his team to express their creativity in presentation and preparation, always striving to delight their guests.

As he looks toward the future, Chef Nobu plans to solidify and grow the Nobu brand further, creating innovative dishes that stay true to his passion for fresh, locally sourced ingredients and that continue to set the standard for excellence in the industry. We can't wait to see what's next from this culinary icon!

It was a celebration of flavours, culture, and innovation, and those fortunate enough to be in attendance left with a deeper appreciation for the artistry behind the Nobu legacy.
