oma is considered by many to be the world’s most influential restaurant.
In 2017, the Copenhagen restaurant’s team and Four Seasons partner
for a nine-city, 19-day, once-in-a-lifetime Private Jet journey. Noma
Chef René Redzepi has curated the itinerary to connect guests with his
culinary friends around the world. One of three Four Seasons Private Jet
Experiences available in 2017, the Culinary Discoveries trip introduces
guests to top chefs and producers for discussions, foraging expeditions,
cooking classes, communal meals and street-food adventures—each
experience designed to reveal something not only about the destination’s
culinary heritage, but about its culture. As with every Four Seasons Private
Jet Experience, the in-air services and amenities—from the hand-stitched
Italian leather flat-bed seats to the latest vintage of Dom Pérignon—are
unbeatable, helping to make the journey as enjoyable as the destinations.
SEOUL | May 27–29
In this burgeoning food destination, the journey begins with a truly exclusive
experience: dining at the home of Chef Jong Kuk Lee, a pioneer in the city’s
farm-to-table movement. Lee was trained as a painter, but has become a
self-taught master of traditional cooking and fermentation. Although he’s
more likely to shy away from a spotlight than to seek one out, he has gained
renown among those in the know. “I’ve personally been to his home for dinner,
and it’s a very sought-after experience,” Redzepi says. Guests will also visit
Jungsik restaurant, the first to apply molecular gastronomy to Korean
ingredients, and, between outings, will find that Four Seasons Hotel Seoul
mirrors the city’s intoxicating mix of venerable history and modern sensibility.
