Milanese Chef Mauro Ferrari is the quintessential Italian Chef – gregarious and extremely hospitable. Chef Mauro Ferrari has worked on a special 4-course menu for Christmas. From slow cooked roast turkey served with dry figs to our favourite braised lamb shank tortellini combined with caramelised onions, this compact menu is something every Italian food fan will thoroughly savour.
This four-course dinner menu runs till Dec 23 (Rs 1800 plus taxes/head) before making way for a Christmas eve dinner menu for dinner on December 24th. The vegetarian options within this four course menu are equally compelling; our pick – the cheese creme brûlée (that cleverly combines Emmental and Parmesan cheese) served with fried vegetables.
