A Sicilian affair with Chef Lino Sauro @ Ritz Carlton KL

It’s been a while since I’ve accepted an invite for a food event but hey, the Chef in topic is Chef Lino Sauro so how could I miss such an opportunity?

It would be great to see him in action again after 5 years.
Heck, let me try to get this same shot with him and post it in my later article about my luncheon alright? 🙂

Citibank Gastronomic Jam Session 2012 (10)

The luncheon menu was shared with us today and boy, it’s going to be torturous few days of wait before I can savour my Squid Ink “Rice Pasta”, Cuttlefish, Mussels, Chili, Pistachio Pesto!
Yes, I’ve even selected my main course!

And I’m drooling my dessert.
How does one say “No” to desserts?

I know I won’t!

Sicilian Ricotta Cheese Cake.

And this Charred Citrus Glazed Octopus, Capsicum & Sun Dried Tomato Aioli as appetiser.
I’m slobbering over my keyboard now.

But hey, YOU can enjoy this meal too.
