Event description:

In January 2017, two-star Michelin chef Sidney Schutte will visit Shanghai as part of his collaboration with the innovative vegetarian cuisine restaurant and brand WUJIE. On November 7th this year, Chef Schutte was named Chef of the Year 2017 by the prestigious restaurant guide Gault & Millau Nederland while Librije’s Zusje Amsterdam, the two-star Michelin restaurant he runs at Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam, was awarded 18 out of 20 points. This trip marks his second collaboration with WUJIE, where he and the restaurant’s head chefs will together craft an 8-course menu that explores the global dimensions of vegetarian cuisine.


Chef Schutte started his career in 1999 as sous-chef at De Librije in Zwolle, Netherlands and has been earning countless positive reviews and praise ever since. De Librije earned its second Michelin star that year and its third in 2004 under the guidance of Schutte as Executive Chef. In 2009, Chef Schutte decided to broaden his culinary horizons and relocated to Hong Kong, where he served as Executive Chef in world-renowned The Landmark Mandarin Oriental that houses the two-star Michelin restaurant Amber. However, his most noteworthy accomplishment may be his role in leading his current restaurant Librije’s Zusje Amsterdam to two Michelin stars within only seven months of opening in 2014. 


Chef Schutte’s achievements have been praised by many, and his time spent in Hong Kong was influential in molding his personal culinary style as Asian accents can be found throughout his dishes. The Gault & Millau jury report refers to “Schutte’s comet-like development” in praise, explaining, “Sidney’s dishes are works of precision. Each plate is a story in itself. Composition, balance of flavors, ingredients, preparations – everything ultimately intertwines in an extraordinary fashion. It is often daring, also with the use of Asian ingredients, but has a subtlety that only the very best chefs can master.”


“Vegetarian food is the way of the future,” said Chef Schutte to Vogue.com in December 2015. “It needs to be exciting, not boring. When you make it exciting, people will come back and, at the end of the day, that’s the goal. You always need to respect the classic kitchen, but you need to go one step further. Otherwise, you go one step back.” It is this fairly simple, forward-thinking philosophy that’s taken Chef Schutte and his restaurant to great heights in just over two years. 


At the end of September this year, WUJIE was invited by Chef Schutte to Amsterdam, where the two parties collaborated at the Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam’s Goldfinch Brasserie on a world-class vegetarian menu that was enthusiastically received by guests. Orders for his vegetarian Chef’s Menu at Librije’s Zusje Amsterdam skyrocketed during WUJIE’s visit, which he attributes to the interest the collaboration piqued and the bright future ahead for inventive vegetarian cuisine.


In order to extend the wonderful partnership in vegetarian co-creation, WUJIE has invited Chef Schutte to visit Shanghai in January 2017 and join its chefs in the kitchen to create another memorable and exciting menu, marked by the themes of East meets West and tradition meets contemporary. This culinary event is dedicated to offering a well-rounded gastronomic experience not only for vegetarians but for all lovers of innovative cuisine.

WUJIE cordially invites you to join us on this most special occasion. Three nights only at WUJIE The Bund 1/15-17.
