Southeast Asia–based gourmands do not need to wait for the opening of Ubud’s Syrco BASÈ to taste Syrco Bakker’s inventive cross-cultural dishes. The maestro who led Pure C in the seaside Dutch town of Cadzand to two-Michelin-star status has embarked on an Asia tour ahead of the Q4 launch of his latest venture in Bali. After successful pop-ups at the Four Seasons Sayan resort in Ubud and Modena in Jakarta, Bakker will be bringing his craft to the ultra-luxe Capella properties of Singapore and Bangkok. Here’s what we know so far:

Capella Singapore: August 18–19

Bakker is set to demonstrate his culinary innovation at Capella Singapore, where he will join forces with the resort’s Chinese Executive Chef Alan Chan for an exclusive two-night event at Cassia. Guests will be treated to a six-course menu blending Cantonese, Dutch, and Indonesian flavors, with Chef Bakker’s own heritage expressed in specialties influenced by his Dutch-Indonesian upbringing. Diners can look forward to a memorable preview of culinary creations that will be revealed at Syrco BASÈ before the year’s end.

Capella Bangkok: August 25–26

Later this month, chef Bakker’s journey continues to Capella Bangkok, where he will team up with chef Davide Garavaglia at Côte by Mauro Colagreco. The epicurean adventure involves an eight-course dinner that marries the flavors of the French Riviera and Bali. Enjoyed against the backdrop of the Chao Phraya River, this experience promises to be a celebration of sustainably sourced ingredients, the chefs’ deep connection to their culinary roots, and a shared respect for seasonality and utilizing the local produce.
