RENAISSANCE Kuala Lumpur promises authentic Italian cuisine at MED.@Marche-Live by executive chef Andrea Conti.
Hailing from the north-western region of Piamonte, known as Italy’s gastronomical capital, Conti is bringing his wealth of experience to serve every palate craving for some good Italian food in Kuala Lumpur.
Conti is very passionate about his food and is particular in using only top quality ingredients.
“Here you are assured of simple, authentic and fresh Italian food of the highest standards.
“We are also looking into supporting local farmers who supply organic food products,” he said.
Conti also mentioned that there were many misconceptions about Italian cuisine as many simply use names to market their food.
“People relate to Italian food as a comfort food and that is what it is. This is the place for a casual dining experience with a dose of the real Italian goodness,” he said.
Renaissance hosted an exclusive one night only Piamonte wine dinner recently featuring a six- course gourmet dinner for about 50 lovers of wine and good food put together by Conti himself.
The dinner started off with Trio Piemontese, made up of ball peppers roll, poached veal in tonnato sauce, zucchini salad and trout carpaccio paired with Fontanafredda Gavi Del Comune Di Gavi DOC.
Next up was the Cream Pea Soup with Ricotta and Dark Chocolate Tortellini, Milky Air accompanied by Fontanafredda Dolcetto d’Alba DOC, followed by the first main course, a choice of either Arborio Rice Italian Sausage Ragout and Barbera Wine Reduction or the Arborio Rice, Goat Cheese, Asparagus Salad and Thyme paired with the Fontanafredda Barolo DOCG.
Diners were again given a choice for the second main course between the Slow Braised Rump of Lamb with a medley of Roots and Nutmeg Barolo Jelly or a Confit of Snapper and Fresh Herbs, Sweet and Sour Seasonal Vegetables Creme Fraiche along with Fontanafredda Barolo Serralunga d’Alba DOCG.
Then came the dessert, Amaretti Semifreddo with Vanilla and Cinnamon Soup paired with Moncucco Grappa Di Moscato. Lastly, an assorted selection of petit fours was served.
