Chef Gavin Baker’s Mist Project comes to the beautiful Misool Eco Resort, Raja Ampat, Indonesia from 4-16 May, 2015.
Mist is a roving restaurant that reinterprets local ingredients and techniques, transforming them into world-class dishes. Chef Baker immerses himself in new cultures and communities, accessing their traditions through the universal language of food.
He researches disappearing foodstuffs and techniques, documenting the entire process. Chef Baker and a team of local cooks then join forces in the test kitchen, reinventing the food as modern cuisine. The result is an altogether unique culinary experience.
Chef Baker will hand-craft a number of dinners, culminating in a 12-course tasting menu featuring unknown and forgotten local foods. This multi-sensory experience will be the result of several months of on-site research and development at Misool Eco Resort as a part of Chef Baker’s Mist Project.
Chef Baker’s culinary career has spanned from managing Justin Timberlake’s LA restaurant on the Sunset Strip to teaching cooking in remote Himalayan villages. He has worked with the legendary Jean-Jacques Rachou in New York City, and also held one of the coveted sous chef positions at The Fat Duck, awarded the “Best Restaurant in the World” in 2005. He also managed the creation, construction, and operation of 5 high-end food outlets in Melbourne, Australia. Most recently, Gavin filmed a documentary chronicling Mist in Bali.
