CHEFS NIGHT SERIES

We are proud to present our intimate dining experiences which are formed out of a combination of Bonne Nouvelle and Umami.

The CHEFSNIGHT series is where we invite celebrated international chefs to Charly’s Gare to create a memorable and unique culinary experience based on a collaborative seasonal set menu and an imaginative drinks pairing.

Everyone is invited to sit together amongst a shared passion for food, wine and storytelling.



OFF THE GRID
Caves Wengler x Umami
5 courses with wine pairing
Off the Grid is a new series of experimental dining experiences and low intervention wine performances created in collaboration by Umami and Caves Wengler. One of a kind bespoke food and savage wines in a combined nature to embrace the conventions of innovative fine dining with an off grid touch.

Chef Juan Pablo Rojas Pineda will be bringing his Latin American influence to Luxembourg. Born in Medellín, he arrived in France at the age of 6 and graduated from the Ferrandi school in Paris. He trained at Antoine and Septime, before returning to Colombia to rediscover its culture and gastronomy. Back in Paris, he worked as a sous-chef at Flocon and then decided to go independent. Juan Pablo then went on to do a series of residencies and pop ups in Europe to promote Colombian cuisine.

Biodynamic and natural wine selection by Wengler Châteaux et Domaines, a family business exclusively importing fine wine, champagne and spirits in Luxembourg. The portfolio embraces a carefully curated selection from small refined producers to noble wine houses. 125 years of sharing passionate stories behind bottles that reflect the terroir and the people that make them. Be prepared to travel through a diverse selection from the greatest wine regions in the world.

PAST CHEFSNIGHT005_SVEVA GUEDROITZ and CHARLES BIWER

We kick off the next CHEFSNIGHT in a surprise location in Bonnevoie over two days. Paris-based chefs Sveva Guedroitz and Charles Biwer have developed a five course for the event. In collaboration with Florence Café.

Sveva’s culinary debut started in Paris when she decided to join Ferrandi, the gastronomic school. She did her training alongside Michelin starred chefs in Paris and in the south of France. She also got to experience the catering industry by working at Nhomade in Paris. She now works with Manon Fleury at Le Perchoir, an all vegetarian gastronomic restaurant. Sveva’s cuisine centres on fish and seasonal vegetables. She believes in the importance of seasonal and local produce and wants to show that animal protein doesn’t always have to be the star of a dish.

After a retraining from the startup world, Charles started out working as a chef in spring 2022. He is now working full time at Nhome, a gastronomic restaurant also founded by Matan Zaken. Born in a family that puts meaning behind the harmony of food and tradition, Charles’ focus today lies in combining memory and nostalgia with the newly acquired technique in French gastronomy when creating a dish. The duo met through a friend and they ended up living together, soon realising they shared the same passion for food.
