The Mozaic Group is headed by Masterchef Chris Salans, founder of Mozaic Restaurant Gastronomique since 2001. Salans’s culinary philosophy is to apply modern and traditional French cooking techniques to Indonesian ingredients, an approach that has made him one of the most celebrated chefs in Southeast Asia. He regularly travels in the region, teaching and giving presentations for culinary events. In 2004, Mozaic Restaurant Gastronomique was invited to become a member of Les Grandes Tables du Monde (The Grand Tables of the World), Traditions & Qualité, so far one of only three in Southeast Asia. Its wine list is regularly awarded by Wine Spectator. Mozaic is also the only Indonesian restaurant to be selected as one of the 100 World’s Best in the San Pellegrino Guide. Mozaic is also the venue of a world-class cooking school, where classes are taught by Chef Salans or one his co-chefs in a state-of-the-art kitchen built in partnership with Miele. The adjacent dining room is the venue for Chef’s Table dinners and other private events.
