Italian food lovers are in for a spectacular festival – The Clash of the Italians at Prego – The Westin Mumbai Garden City’s, a one-of-its-kind event celebrating the nuances of the popular cuisine. Showcasing the best of the cuisines from two different regions – Milan (hills) and Genoa (sea) with Marriott’s two Italian chefs, Chef Marouane Rahali, and Chef Antonello Cancedda personally curating a culinary journey that transcends the ordinary.
Be spoilt for choice with two specially curated menus to tantalize your palate. A sneak peek reveals Chef Marouane’s – dalle colline (from the hills) signature curations such as; Pollo tonnato (chicken slow cooked and served with tuna and capers sauce), Beetroot gnocchi, sweet blue cheese sauce toasted walnut, and Polenta croccante cuore di Gorgonzola dolce. This medley finales with a scrumptious Tiramisu decomposto (deconstructed Tiramisu, mascarpone, coffee Ice cream), and Tartufo al cioccolato Belga zabaglione al liquore di nocciola frutti di bosco (Belgian dark chocolate truffle, hazelnut liquor, zabaglione, wild berries).
While Chef Antonello’s menu, dal mare (from the sea) presents prime seafood delights, renown in Genoa like; Cappon magro (traditional Genovese antipasto, with fish, shellfish and salsa verde) Spaghetti allo scoglio, (seafood, frutti di mare homemade spaghetti, lemon zest), Grigliata mista di pesce (grilled sea bass, prawns, baby octopus, calamari, and grilled vegetables). To balance this exquisite menu, delectable desserts like Zuppa Inglese (vanilla and chocolate cake flavored with rose syrup) and Sorbetto al arancia e al limone (orange sorbet and lemon sorbet) make your meal unforgettable indeed!
With a menu that reads passion as equally, as the pure genius put into each offering does, there is an intense zeal to want to discover the robustness of authentic Italian cuisines from opposing habitats.
