whole new sense of exhilaration and excitement.

excitement at being able to appraise their ideas. They also spoke a
bit more about the dishes they had prepared. A perfect night for
the dinner, the organization of the event under the stars and the

the patrons with a delightful Pacchery Cacio E Pepe, Scorpionfish
along with Sautéed spinaches and a dessert consisting of different
types of chocolate with different consistencies, bread and olives.
Ernesto produced a remarkable Seabass cooked in Banana leaves, with
Green Zucchini Cream, Tomato soup and Green lemon. But perhaps the
most eye-catching dish presented on the night was a baked potato

extravagant flavour of natural saltiness.

among the guests, as they dined on the cuisines. Putting the final
garnishes to the outstanding dinner, the three chefs stated how
grateful they were of the opportunity to experiment with their
craft and provide an immaculate dining experience to the guests of

developed it is with different types of cuisines and different
techniques being used. Working as a team, the three masters in
their craft, showed true wonders that can come out of Michelin

the year. The resorts have further plans to host chefs such as
