I’ve never seen Lafite look more energized nor electrified than at the most recent Beats & Brunch soirée..
What can I say, perhaps this injection of electric vitality was exactly what the doctor ordered.
And every last Sunday of the week, revival comes in a downpour of champagne, great French food, and rocking beats.
Beats and Brunch at Lafite, Shangri-La Hotel, Kuala Lumpur features an all-you-can-eat French buffet, consisting of sumptuous appetisers, mains and desserts by Executive Chef Olivier Pistre, free flow of Veuve Clicquot champagne, wines and cocktails, paired with live DJ music.
Chef Olivier Pistre was just recently appointed Executive Chef of Shangri-La Hotel, Kuala Lumpur in February 2017. He has over 22 years of culinary experience in the food and beverage industry. His professional skills include being a master at fabricating all things sweet and salty as well as being a technical advisor for restaurants, banquets and catering. Upon graduating from the patisserie division in Mazamet, France, there was no turning back. He has since won many culinary awards, and has had years of experience at Michelin-starred restaurants, working hand in hand with Michelin-starred chefs such as Christian Willer, Gerard Garrigues and Philippe Labbé.
The other exciting new face to Shangri-La KL happens to be Paul Gardin, executive pastry chef. Hailing from France, Chef Paul Gardin obtained his training in the catering and hotel industry, majoring in culinary production from the Ecole Hotelliere De Paris – CFA Mederic in France.
