GIRO D’ITALIA MOVING STAGE FROM THE RACE TRACKS OF ITALY TO THE TABLES OF TOSCA AT THE RITZ

From September 21 to 23, 2017, Chef Pino Lavarra will be hosting a one-of-a-kind wine and dine tour of Italy, bringing together top wineries, culinary maestros with three Michelin stars and divine gastronomies from four key regions – Puglia, Campania, Sicily and Lombardy, all in one menu.

The exciting dining concept draws inspirations from the time-celebrated Giro d’Italia annual three-week-long bicycle race navigating around Italy. This time, instead of leading riders in signature pink jersey, four highly respected Italian craftsmen in their recognizable white chef’s jackets will be under the spotlight. Whereas food is the key to enjoyment, pairing wines give life and vivacity to a dining experience. Premium Italian wines, with an overwhelming rise in popularity worldwide, are the backbone of Tosca’s exclusive menus. Chef Pino lined up four giants in the Italian wine-making scene – Gianfranco Fino from Puglia, Feudi di San Gregorio from Campania, Tasca d’Almerita from Sicily and Bellavista from Lombardy, and three other acclaimed guest chefs from the respective wine regions, to whip up an unparalleled three-day-only culinary storm.

 

Gianfranco Fino from the Manduria city of Puglia is a young winery founded in 2004. The estate is home to grapes which are allowed to ripen on the vines for a longer time to give the wines higher sugar content and more intense flavors. Hand-harvested grapes are aged in new and inert oak to strike a perfect balance between hints of barrel aging and the unique characteristics of the terroir. Originally from Puglia, Director of the Michelin-starred Tosca Pino Lavarra (main picture) has a special fondness for “the heel of the boot”. Warm memories of his hometown are reinterpreted into lovingly crafted creations to deliver the taste of Puglia at its very core.

Heading west on the map is Campania, where Feudi di San Gregorio runs its 300-hectare wine empire. With an unwavering respect for the land’s historic heritage, the winery is on a mission to enhance local wine production with a modern approach. Much emphasis has been put on cultivating native varietals such as Greco di Tufo – the most noble of the Southern Italian grapes; Fiano di Avellino – an ancient vine of the Roman era prospering in soils of volcanic origin; Falanghina del Sannio – another ancient varietal enjoyed by the Sannites and Romans; and Aglianico – ranking among the finest red Italian grapes. Pairing with the Feudi di San Gregorio wines will be scrumptious dishes prepared by Chef Paolo Barrale. Having honed his crafts for almost 30 years, Chef Paolo specializes in traditional Italian cuisine full of unique territorial flair. With family roots in Sicily, Chef Paolo has headed the kitchen of Feudi di San Gregorio’s Michelin-starred restaurant, Marennà, for over 10 years and has fully adopted Irpinia of Campania as his home.

Paolo-Barrale

Further south on the Italian peninsula is Sicily, the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. Boasting five farming estates in different territories in Sicily, the 500-hectare Tasca d’Almerita demonstrates the region’s vast potential in producing world-class vintages made with both international and Sicilian varietals. Benefiting from the Mediterranean climate of Sicily, the five estates enjoy significant differences in average temperatures and rainfall levels, which foster the cultivation of a wide range of varietals from the well-structured reds with great aging potential to the whites with strong notes of mineral. Bathed in southern light and salt-sprayed sea breeze on the Aeolian Island of Salina, Capofaro Malvasia & Resort is a luxury lodging facility in one of Tasca d’Almerita’s estates.

Ludovico De Vivo

Its Executive Chef Ludovico De Vivo is known for fashioning his Michelin-starred creations around local flavors ranging from ingredients from the estate’s vegetable gardens to seafood from the waters surrounding the Aeolian Islands. Aged 36, Chef Ludovico refined his culinary skills in kitchens in Amalfi, Anacapri, Zermatt in Switzerland, Bray in the UK and Copenhagen, before his passion for fine cuisine came to the notice of Capofaro Malvasia & Resort in 2012.

Fabio Abbattista

Home to the largest metropolitan area in Italy, Lombardy is customarily the place where Giro d’Italia starts or finishes. Producing one of the most reputable Franciacorta wines, Bellavista takes pride in its balanced landscape – sunny hills between the scenic Lake Iseo and the Alps. The 190-hectare vineyards spreading over ten municipalities have individual harvest schedules, resulting in wines acclaimed for tasteful and subtle expression enriched with extraordinary complexity. The wine producer of excellence has been the official partner of Teatro alla Scala opera house since 2004, supplying a limited collection of vintages to the theater’s major debuts. Just a few strides away from Bellavista is LeoneFelice restaurant where Executive Chef Fabio Abbattista showcases territorial cuisine bonding between traditions and modern interpretation. Freshness and the quality of ingredients are key to his cooking, whereas techniques, as he mentions, come later. In celebration of the strong agricultural tradition Lombardy is famous for, Chef Fabio loves working with local ingredients – vegetables from the restaurant’s own garden, cheese and dairy products from small farms, seafood caught by local fishermen and meat from neighboring breeders. His dishes, inspired by modern Mediterranean cuisine, are not just an expression of his talents, but also a representation of the work and passion of local producers behind the scenes.

JAPANESE OMAKASE RESTAURANT, KISHOKU COLLABORATES WITH MIXOLOGY MAESTRO ANTONIO LAI

A pairing unlike any other, gin and Japanese cuisine will now unite to exude a host of marvelous and unexpected flavors. The trendiest drink around town, gin is a spirit that is as good for the body as it is for the soul. Known for keeping one’s skin young, extending one’s life span and fighting off illness, this spirit is as close to an elixir as can be. Inspired by their love for a good gin and tonic, the visionary owners of Kishoku stumbled upon the perfect pairing for their fine Japanese cuisine. After much deliberation with the master mixologist Antonio Lai who believes that gin and tonic works wonders in helping one settle their stomach after a big meal, a beautiful union was born. Starting from 1st September, Kishoku will treat guests to five delightful pairings of gin and Japanese culinary delights.

Kishoku’s Gin x Japanese Omakase

A pairing unheard of in the local food scene, gin and Japanese cuisine have never been so delightful. A powerful duo, the special range of in-house infused gin will perfectly accent Kishoku’s delicacies. Using the versatile spirit that can be infused with countless unique flavors, Antonio will surprise guests with his gin concoctions and leave them wanting more.

The perfect prelude to the meal, the Cucumber Gin with Fever-Tree Premium Indian Tonic Water is a light and refreshing mix that will accent the delectable flavors of Kishoku’s appetizer. The Shiso Gin paired with fresh sashimi is another match made in heaven. Inspired by the shisho leaf that constantly accompanies sashimi, the gin will again be mixed with the Fever-Tree Premium Indian Tonic Water. Antonio’s Lemon Infused Gin with Yuzu Peel and Fever-Tree Mediterranean Tonic Water will accompany Kishoku’s exquisite sushi. Antonio specially chose the lemon and yuzu components for their acidity so be blown away by the tangy flavor that deliciously cuts through the fish and rice. The menu’s main dish will be served with a Grapefruit Infused Gin featuring grapefruit peel and Fever-Tree Light Tonic Water. To offset the heaviness of one’s main dish, grapefruit was chosen to balance the palate and accent the strong flavors. For dessert, guests will enjoy the Earl Grey Gin with lemon peel and Fever-Tree Premium Indian Tonic Water. The fragrant Earl Grey will lead to a perfect finale of the meal. Mimicking the traditional post-meal cup of tea, this cocktail will leave guests feeling delighted and satisfied.

Available only during dinner service at Kishoku, guests can add Antonio’s enchanting gin pairing for an additional HK$350 with each omakase set. At Kishoku, guests are given the option of four delectable omakase sets, the introductory “Ki (喜 )” omakase at HK$950, the sushi focused “Sho (嘗)” omakase at HK$1350, the premium “Ku (楽)” omakase at HK$1550 and the signature “Kishoku (嘗楽)” omakase at HK$1850. Guests can also choose to add pairings by the glass at HK$120 each. When indulging in each of the five lovely pairings, guests will embark on a breathtaking gastronomical journey.

Introducing Antonio Lai – Master Mixologist

Known for bringing the world of Multisensory Mixology to Hong Kong, Antonio Lai has built his career through working in renowned bars, clubs, restaurants and cafes both domestically and internationally, and lauded as a genius and extremely inventive mixologist. Over the past 20 years, he has successfully launched prestigious and award winning bars around Hong Kong such as the Quinary, The Envoy, Ori-Gin and VEA Restaurant & Lounge. With a passion towards sharing his knowledge on Multisensory Mixology with the world, he has published two cocktail books that received the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards in 2011 and 2012 respectively, and hosted numerous seminars and events such as the Restaurant & Bar Show Hong Kong, the Whisky Cocktail Workshop at The Institute for Tourism Studies in Macau, the Maison Bartender training program for Pernod Ricard and the Diageo World Class in Seoul Korea, New Delhi and Dubai.

A choice between the succulent Pan Seared Duck Foie Gras with apple chutney and port wine reduction and a rich Wild Mushroom Cream Soup with sautéed Chanterelle and truffles present an indulging second course. A pasta course celebrates Italy’s twin culinary staples with the crowd-pleasing Wagyu Beef Cheek Penne with rocket and truffle cream; or Lobster Ragout Risotto with zucchini and tarragon oil.

SUSTAINABLE NORWEGIAN KING CRAB LAVISH THE TABLES OF TIN LUNG HEEN

Native to the Bering Sea and introduced to the Norwegian waters of the Barents Sea in the 1960s, red king crab is a highly sought-after delicacy known for its massive size and succulent meat. From August 15 until October 31, two-star Michelin Tin Lung Heen presents a decadent six-course menu showcasing the luscious gem from Finnmark, the northernmost county in Norway, to satisfy the cravings of crab fanatics.

Tin Lung Heen secured the only sustainable source of live red king crabs from Bugøynes, a small fishing village in Finnmark where fishing quota is imposed. Waters around the coast of Bugøynes, strategically located at the northern tip of Norway, enjoy a lower average temperature which makes it an ideal habitat for red king crabs. To ensure sustainability of the species, each male crab carries a barcode for the purpose of tracing its fishing source and schedule.

Chef de Cuisine Paul Lau from two-star Michelin Tin Lung Heen is set to tempt epicures with the purest taste of premium Norwegian king crabs with a special six-course menu prepared with a 5kg* gigantic male crab good for 10 persons to share. Steamed Crab Leg with Egg White in Hua Diao Wine showcases the highly skilled crafts of Chef Lau. The crab leg is half-cooked to remove the shell and carefully arranged on top of the egg white for steaming. Precise portion of ingredients and time management are required to make the steamed egg white silky smooth while retaining the succulence of the crab meat. The flavor of egg white is enriched with crab juice and Hua Diao wine, making it an equally enticing accompaniment to the crab leg.

Crab shells are simmered for 45 minutes under high heat and sieved to create a clear crab stock full of natural sweetness. For an extra indulgence, the Simmered Fresh Crab Meat Soup is then enhanced with crab juice and freshly steamed crab meat.

Baked Fried Rice with Crab Sauce and Marmoreal Mushroom is a flavorful feast for crab lovers. Rich and creamy crab roe enlivens the fried rice and marmoreal mushroom, giving the dish an inviting golden color and an irresistible aroma. For the full menu, please refer to the appendix.

The six-course menu is priced at HK$1,888+10% per person. Five days’ advance booking is required. Menu prepared with 5kg male king crab requires a minimum order of 10 persons. Guests with a smaller party (two persons or above) may opt for the same menu prepared with 1.5kg* female crab.

For reservations and inquiries, please contact Restaurant Reservations at (852) 2263 2270 or email restaurantreservation.hk@ritzcarlton.com.

*Approximate size only. Size of crabs is subject to supply.

Those craving for something different can sample The Notorious P.I.G Hamburger with Wicks Manor English slow braised BBQ pork, crackling, green apple slaw and spring onions. Liberty Fries with secret sauce provides the perfect accompaniment to this comforting dish and for the final indulgence, the warm skillet cookies & cream is a sure crowd pleaser.

Born and raised in Germany, Chef Uwe has been in the culinary industry for two decades. He loves the freedom of creating new hamburgers ever since he started at Beef & Liberty and enjoys doing research on what makes a hamburger perfect.

Brace yourselves for a lively and interactive dining experience with Chef Uwe as he whips up a storm for dinner while resident mixologist, Nikita Matveev mixes invigorating cocktails to match this exciting fare. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to try these gourmet bites from Beef & Liberty. For reservations, call Vida Rica Restaurant and Bar at +853 8805 8928 or email vidaricabar@mohg.com.
