An excursion of Italy with Guest Chef Giuseppe Lioce @ Westin Gurgaon's PREGO!!
This July, take an excursion of Italy, right here at The Westin Gurgaon’s Californian Style Italian Venue- PREGO with Guest Chef, Giuseppe Lioce.
So, just like you would expect in Italy, you can choose to enjoy your meal indoors or out on the open deck with a backdrop of a busy restaurant. In order to deliver the quality that he is so particular about, Giuseppe Lioce personally ensures that he buys only the best and the freshest ingredients. With certain recipes tracing back from his home town aka Bari in the south of Italy, the cuisine here finds its roots in tradition. Giuseppe takes pride in every dish served to you and ensures it is as true to its roots as he himself is with a beautifully crafted A la carte menu, for lunch and dinner. Veritably Italian!
To start with let me tell you this dynamic Chef Giuseppe comes with 13 years of experience, having worked in a range of boutique restaurants and 5 Star hotels throughout Europe and is currently the Italian Chef at The Westin Pune Koregaon Park specially flown in for this promotion. What do you do when you’re far away from home and you crave for Mama’s cooking? You cook like her, Giuseppe did just that, his promotional menu is concise, classic with his signature twist and his sumptuous offerings focus on taste without forgoing the presentation.
The ‘carpaccio di funghi’ which are seasonal fresh mushrooms marinated in Italian lemon dressing, mint, shaved parmesan, rucola and balsamic reduction is a great prelude of things to come. Every dish that follows from the pasta to the mains will not disappoint- a consistency of standard that adds to the dining pleasure. Try the gnocchi; it is given a fresh twist with tomato sauce, basil, baked in the oven with mozzarella sauce. Not to be missed is the ‘Paccheri al ragu di Agnello’, here the Paccheri is filled and topped with fork tender slow cooked lamb ragout is so beautifully cooked and tastes so divine, that it leaves you wanting for more. His specialities ‘branzino livornese’ baked sea bass, tomato sauce with olives, anchovies, capers served with fried polenta and spinach and ‘pollo alla pizzaiola’, chicken fillets cooked in tomato sauce, black olives, oregano, chilli, served with mashed potato are absolute winners. Dessert is a dip into the pool of divine decadence with chef’s version of the ‘millefoglie’, layered warm puff pastry with Italian custard, mango and vanilla ice cream … simply a sweet piece de resistance. Buon Appetito!
The promotion is on from 8th July until 17th July 2015
