Avanti Italy At ITC Sonar

Most of us are extremely fond of Italian cuisine but very rare do we get to taste authentic Italian cuisine.To bring out the true flavours of Italian food the Italian consulate is having an Italian cuisine week which is happening all across the globe.And a a part of the festival ITC Sonar is having an authentic Italian A la carte menu at the West view Bar and Grill.Chef Vittorio Greco has curated some of the most authentic and exotic italian delicacies.Chef Vittorio believes simplicity is the key and he prefers food that is simple and soulful.He is highlighting the diverse cuisine of piedmont,parma and versilia.

I along with other city bloggers was invited to have an afternoon with the master chef ,knowing about Italian food and also tasting some amazing delicacies.We started with antipasti(appetiser) which had Filleto di pollo o Alle Erbe (,chicken cubes in Tuna sauce and sesame seeds.) and Parmigiana Rivisitata Con Olio Al Carbonnee (tomato and parmigiano mousse with aubergine salad and drizzle of charcoal oil).Next came the soup.Have you ever tried soup with dark chocolate in it?Thats what the next dish is about,if you are fond of gorgonzola cheese and dark chocolates I’m sure you will love the Zuppa di Carciofi con Gorgonzola e cioccolato Fondente.The creamy artichoke soup with dark chocolate is extremely interesting.

For the main course we had Ravioli di Ossobuco ,a lamb ossobuco ravioli in citrus sauce.The ravioli was filled lamb and the citrus sauce added that tangy flavour to it.Next came my absolute favourite Filleto di Branzio Capperi e Olive,sea bass braised with celery,capers and olives in a thyme and white wine broth.The flavours were extremely distinct and i loved how it was simple and yet very distinctive.

Now what is Italian food without a classic Tiramisu for desserts.And i have to admit this one was the showstopper.

So if you love Italian food you know where to be this weekend.The special a la carte menu for the International week of Italian Cuisine is available till the 27th of November at West view Bar & Grill,for dinner from 7;30pm onwards.Dont miss it.
