HCM CITY — Renowned guest chefs will arrive in the island of Phú Quốc for an exclusive Lunar New Year food event that transcends culinary boundaries to make a statement on the beginning of a new chapter.

Held at JW Marriott Phu Quoc Emerald Bay Resort & Spa, “The Luxury Intersection” event is designed to celebrate luxury and cultural diversity, especially in the culinary arts.

Guest chefs from two of the most prestigious luxury brands, JW Marriott Hotel Seoul in South Korea and The Ritz-Carlton, Guangzhou in China, will converge at this enchanting destination to curate an exquisite fusion of Vietnamese, Chinese, and Korean cuisines.

Just as intersecting paths create meaningful interactions, The Luxury Intersection is a space where chefs from JW Marriott and The Ritz-Carlton cross culinary borders to collaborate, inspire, and craft an extraordinary gastronomic experience, while honoring the traditional beauty and unique identities present in Việt Nam, China, and Korea.

Gourmets will have the opportunity to experience a culinary journey from region to region, filled with quintessential pan-Asian flavors, thanks to the stellar talents of Chef Jeongsoo Choi from JW Marriott Hotel Seoul, and Chef Bob Chen from The Ritz-Carlton, Guangzhou, along with Chef Nhượng Nguyễn, the head chef of the Vietnamese Kitchen, and Executive Pastry Chef Gin Nguyễn from JW Marriott Phu Quoc.

Together, they take centre stage at The Luxury Intersection, orchestrating an extraordinary culinary experience that goes beyond mere indulgence.

Between February 10 and 17, gourmets can embark on a transcendent culinary odyssey that spans the rich landscapes of Việt Nam’s Phú Quốc Island, Seoul, and Guangzhou.

An important event that guests would not want to miss during The Luxury Intersection is the luxurious dinner buffet at the Tempus Fugit restaurant, served on the first day of the Lunar New Year, February 10.

Gourmets will be guided through a symphony of taste, from the heartwarming Korean flavors to Lunar New Year delicacies in traditional Cantonese cuisine.

And the indispensable flavor notes of Vietnamese cuisine during traditional Tết such as sticky rice cake or bánh chưng, bánh tét or rice ball sweet soup, contribute to the completion of a pan-Asian symphony.

John Woolley, general manager of JW Marriott Phu Quoc Emerald Bay resort, said, “The main purpose behind ‘The Luxury Intersection’ is to curate a diverse and multi-dimensional experience for guests by collaborating with renowned luxury properties from our source markets. Together, the chefs will craft special menus that highlight the distinct specialties of each country involved, offering our guests an exquisite journey through the flavors and cultural heritage of Việt Nam, South Korea, and China.”
