5 Minutes with Sara Calais

France does decadence best. Fact. And if there’s anyone who knows this, it’s French Martini’s Head Chef Sara Calais. Without further ado, we present you 5 minutes with Sara Calais.

FAVOURITE INGREDIENT
My favourite ingredient would have to be garlic. Flavourful and intense, it reveals a hidden sweetness when roasted that I really enjoy. I use it in most of my dishes a home!

SIGNATURE DISH
I love seafood! Back in London, I used to make a spelt risotto with lobster bisque, saffron, steamed clams, razor clams and mussels. Bright, light and fresh!

I COULDN’T LIVE WITHOUT
Sea salt – I use it in everything!

CULINARY ICON
I don’t have one in particular. I’ve always followed French chefs as they all have something different to teach. Whether it’s Ducasse, Robuchon, Passard or Savoy, it’s always a pleasure to dine in their restaurant.

IF YOU WERE A FOOD
I would definitely be cheese! I love it – stinky or not, I eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner!

Take me to French Martini
