Willow is a no holds barred exploration of premium quality ingredients and different cooking styles from across the globe, focusing on maximal flavours while respecting the properties and combination of seasonal ingredients. Like the resilience and adaptability that the namesake tree symbolises, geographical boundaries are deliberately blurred and harmoniously connecting various cooking techniques, ingredients and plating styles. Chef Nicolas Tam takes you on a journey of possibilities and surprises while staying true to the intent of tradition and innovation.
"I’m a simple guy who just likes making simple food. I tend to favour ingredients from Japan for their consistently high quality. I'm always mindful about letting their natural flavours take centre stage in my dishes."
