CHEF MARCO MURENU BRINGS THE FLAVOURS OF SARDINIA AT PREGO, THE WESTIN GURGAON, NEW DELHI
The Westin Gurgaon, New Delhi brings a never heard before culinary festival in the city- Flavours of Sardinia which is from July 5-15, 2019 at the hotel’s renowned Italian restaurant, Prego.
Chef Marco Murenu, Italian Chef de Cuisine at Prego will bring an exclusive gourmet experience from the island of Sardinia, which also happens to be his hometown. The 10-days long food festival – Flavours of Sardinia features a menu that draws inspiration from recipes that are integral to the home kitchens of this exotic island. Situated in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, Sardinia is the second largest island in the Mediterranean after Sicily. Sardinian food is simple, fresh and scrumptious as it uses a lot of organic ingredients. Sardinia is also famous for its Pecorino cheese.
Some of the dishes from this festival are Carpaccio di salmone alla giardiniera (marinated salmon with giardiniera salad in a light mandarin dressing); Fregola di gamberi (Sardinian couscous with prawns in a bisque), Gnocchetti Sardi alla campidanese a dish comprising “Sardinian gnocchi’, the quintessential pasta from Sardinia in tomato sauce with pork and pecorino cheese; Risotto asparagi e porcini, Pizza ai carcioffi e caciotta affumicata , Pancia di maiale arrosto e vernaccia and the most traditional Sardinian dessert Seadas con miele di acacia- somewhat a pastry, somewhat savoury, it could hold its own as an entree but it’s actually a surprising dessert – a crisp, deep fried pastry filled with oozing cheese and drizzled with warm honey.
