Chef Emmanuel Stroobant

Indra Balaratnam 

Hailing from Belgium, Chef Emmanuel Stroobant’s career began at a tender age of 16 with the cleaning of dishes in one of his country’s best restaurants. At 23, he opened his first restaurant in his hometown, Liege. 

After travelling the world, he made a life-changing decision by heading to Asia. His maiden stop was to Kuala Lumpur in late 1997 and was awarded the ‘1999 Best Expatriate Chef’ by World Asia Media. In that same year Stroobant and his wife Edina moved to Singapore to yet again experience another unchartered episode. Their first restaurant, Saint Pierre became the only Singapore member of the world-renowned Relais & Chรขteaux, the prestigious association of the world’s finest hotels and restaurants; and has been awarded 1 Michelin star by the second edition of Michelin Guide Singapore in 2017.


Chef Emmanuel loves working with U.S. Potatoes because of the quality and versatility of the product.  He demonstrated 4 exciting recipes using U.S. potatoes that are sure to excite your guests when you serve them during the coming Christmas and New Year parties.

Chef Emmanuel loves working with potatoes as they are a staple in nearly every cultural cuisine, so they’re uniquely suited to deliver today’s most craved global flavors. Whether you’re looking for a comforting classic or a new contemporary cuisine, with U.S. potatoes, the possibilities are endless. Available in many varieties and formats, U.S. potatoes are always ready to elevate any dish with amazing taste and texture.

Indra Balaratnam is a consultant dietitian who has 22 years of experience in the field of nutrition and dietetics. She runs her own private practice, where she helps her clients to eat healthier. Indra holds professional memberships in the Malaysian Dietitians’ Association, where she is a Past President (Year 2011/2012); member of the American Overseas Dietetics Association (AODA) affiliate of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics of the US. 

Indra shared with us the fact that potatoes are actually very nutritious.  Potatoes are naturally fat free, cholesterol free, and low in sodium. In addition, potatoes are an excellent source of vitamin C, and those eaten with the skin are a good source of potassium.  Foods that are good sources of potassium and low in sodium, such as potatoes, may reduce the risk of high blood pressure and stroke.

Ms Indra also shared that although many people these days are worried about their carbohydrate intake, carbohydrates are one of the key nutrients in performance nutrition.  Athletes engaged in high volume and high intensity training require adequate amounts of carbohydrates for energy.  U.S. potatoes are an example of an excellent source of carbohydrates. They are rich in vitamin B6 and C, potassium, folate, fibre and antioxidants. “They are extremely versatile and filling, making it a convenient source for athletes” she elaborated. 

Organizer Potatoes USA is the marketing organization for the 2,500 commercial potato growers operating in the United States. They promote five main good quality potato products: fresh table-stock potatoes, fresh chipping potatoes, seed potatoes, frozen potato products and dehydrated potato products.

The night ended with a lucky draw with prizes sponsored by Shangri-La Tanjung Aru followed by a meet & greet session with Chef Emmanuel Stroobant.
