Californian Burger Maestro Kristin Frederick serving at Le Méridien Kuala Lumpur

Discover the American who changed how Paris eats! Credited with kickstarting Parisians’ love affair with gourmet burgers, the renowned burger maestro Kristin Frederick stars as guest chef at Gastro Sentral from 16 to 20 October 2019.

Think pillowy soft buns, flavorful and succulent patties… Making her first appearance in Malaysia, feast in a variety of specially-curated gourmet burgers executed flawlessly as Gastro Sentral Kuala Lumpur pays homage to the great American luncheonette experience.

California-born Kristin came to fame as she revolutionized France’s first food truck concept via Le Camion Qui Fume (or “The Smoking Truck”), which opened and became the chic new way to eat in Paris back in November 2011. It was there and then that she realized it was the start of something huge!

The responses she received were overwhelming, sparking long-hour queues to form around the block for her commendably delicious burgers. Parisians fell in love with Le Camion’s burgers filled with succulent caramelized meat patties with just a hint of gristle for body in char-grilled bun complete with iceberg lettuce, mayo, extra pickles and signature ‘secret sauces’ dripping from the side, all wrapped with paper. It quickly spurred the introduction of other burger chains with similar values, like Blend and Big Fernand and upscale trucks like Cantine California and Le Camion Gourmand, in Paris.

Discover a variety of gourmet burger selections throughout Kristin’s 4-day stint at Gastro Sentral. Relish the taste of the famous Beef BBQ Burger – beef, onion rings, pastrami and melted with cheddar, the Truffle Burger, the Lamb Herb Sauce and the Shroom Swiss to name a few. Marking her first appearance in the city of Kuala Lumpur, the menu selections will also include a few Asian-style variations such as Beef Teriyaki, Beef Kimchi, Grilled Chicken Satay and Extra Spicy Chilli Beef to suit the taste buds of the Asian community.
