Go back to the e-newsletter

Degan Septoadji, better known as Chef Degan, brings a passion for cuisine and a refined style to Phuket, with traditional Indonesian dishes mastered with an abundant mix of exciting ingredients and flavours. From the 4 to 11 of March 2016 the JW Marriott Phuket Resort & Spa will open the doors of Ginja Taste, the resort’s signature Thai restaurant, and allow the master chef to take over with a mouth-watering mix of Indonesian fare.

The respected judge on the reality show, ‘MasterChef Indonesia’, and his home team of sous chefs will be working alongside inhouse culinary artists to present an à la carte menu at Ginja Taste that will introduce diners to the colourful world of Chef Degan’s Indonesian offerings.

Alongside the crafted à la carte menu, Chef Degan will proudly offer his signature set menu. Some highlights include: ‘Aneka Hidangan Pembuka’ (a traditional mix of Indonesian appetisers), ‘Bebek Bambu Bali’ (Balinese spiced duck), ‘Ikan Panggang Kemangi’ (oven-baked fish, chili and lemongrass spice-paste and lemon basil) and an Indonesian black sticky rice pudding.

On 11 March, Chef Degan will be hosting a limited-space cooking class to work hands-on with guests at the resort. As limited spaces are available in the popular Ginja Cook, advanced bookings are highly recommended to those who would like the opportunity to learn seven dishes and the foundation pastes behind many Indonesian dishes from a true Master Chef.

Degan was nominated as ‘Best Asian Chef’ at the 2012 World Gourmet Summit in Singapore. Currently, apart from his involvement in Café Degan, Chef Degan is a regular guest speaker and judge in cooking competitions, television appearances, host and motivator, culinary columnist and consultant.
