Walking On Sunshine at Ottimo, ITC Gardenia!
Ottimo is synonymous to premium Italian food in the country. So when Chef Vittorio Greco who heads Ottimo all across the country had come to ITC Gardenia, we couldn’t stop ourselves from dining there! Chef Greco had come by for an exotic fest titled “Walking on Sunshine”. This fest highlights the cuisine from the Apulia, Italy.
For those of you who don’t know Apulia is the paradise of gourmet food as the produce here is fresh like no tomorrow.
Below are the best dishes the Chef Greco & The 3 Hungry Men recommend:
1. Friselle Bread:
Almost similar to a baguette, this bread is slightly hard (the way it should be) and is doused with cherry tomatoes, cucumber, onions, and just the perfect amount of olive oil. To describe it one word, we would call it “fresh”!
2. Zucchini Flowers:
This dish is one of a kind, never have we had zuchinni flowers in such a delicious way. Stuffed with sea bass or ricotta, this delicacy is mild in flavor yet wholesome.
3. Lamb Ragout:
Minced lamb sauced with the freshest of seasonings served on top of capunti pasta is definitely what you would need to feel right at home!
4. Burrata Pizza:
Cherry tomatoes, olives, and burrata strewn on a pizze and baked to perfection, this is truly delight in disorder as the sauce complements the toppings perfectly!
Though this dish is availaible as a regular but Chef Greco’s touch just made this into a masterpiece. With a perfect proportion along with the right amount of coffee this dessert is a perfect end to your meal.
Incase you haven’t started salivating already, you have eyesight problems! This fest par excellence is on till the 18th of June for dinner!
If you’re lucky, you’ll bump into Chef Grecco who’s one of the finest Chef’s you’ll have ever met!
Stay Hungry! Stay Happy!
