Fabulous Meals by Chef Yvonne Yuen

There is nothing more authentic than enjoying the good company of close friends over a meal at home. That’s precisely what Nadia Widjojo, owner and founder of Conchita Home & Conchita Patisserie had in mind for an intimate and semi-casual gathering with a surprise birthday celebration last February. Private chef Yvonne Yuen renowned for her authentic Chinese cuisine (Shanghai) was invited to prepare 11 exquisite course meals. Not only meals became the centre attention during the fabulous dinner party. Meticulous attention to detail of the table setting was created by Dina Touwani, founder of Flora Lines and renowned wedding decorator based in Jakarta. For this ultimate table party, Dina Touwani has selected an unconventional long table: a long S-shape mirror table.

As William Shakespeare wrote “If music be the food of love, play on“, while enjoying artful meal presentation by Yvonne Yuen for each course, the happy guests were entertained with traditionally rich music from Gunzheng instruments played by two young woman musicians at the gazebo.

Last but not least, in the end of the dinner, all guests received a surprised gift to take home: a pouch of chocolates from FrischSchoggi, Läderach. The unforgettable dinner party by Nadia Widjojo and her husband Boetje Widjojo was enjoyed by their special guests.
