The Ritz-Carlton Kuala Lumpur is shining light onto its epicurean Guest Chef series once again, and for a very limited time only, award-winning Australian Guest Chef Christopher Millar, the Executive Chef of Singapore’s Stellar at 1-Altitude, is presenting his culinary prowess with an exquisite six-course modern Australian cuisine dinner.
Backed by 20 years of expertise comprising fruitful career opportunities in both London and Australia as well as multiple awards and accolades including being awarded Two Stars by Wine & Dine Singapore Top Restaurants Award, the six-course dinner spotlights elegant recipes using sumptuous wagyu flown in from Chef Chris’ own Tajima cattle herd in Australia.
Get ready to have your tastebuds enthralled with an inventive curation of wagyu dishes such as the Wagyu Tri-Tip Tataki with Truffle Mascarpone and Olive Soil, freshened with slivers of black radish, which was a memorable highlight for us as the balanced yet refined complexity of flavours even gave off hints of a savoury umami edge.
While the flavours on the Wagyu Petit Tender Over The Coals with Sea Urchin, fresh Wasabi and Paris Mash were cleaner, the dish was no less spectacular and the light, briny flavour from the uni (sea urchin) offsets the mouth-watering and robust beef delicately.
The Pickled and Braised Wagyu Beef Cheek with Roasted Cauliflower Cream and Porcini on the other hand was palatably perfumed with a concentrated earthiness imparted from the rehydrated porcini mushrooms. It of course didn’t steal the thunder from the tender beef cheek that was perfectly moist though it is one of the leaner cuts of meat.
Cutting the decadence of the meat is an appetiser of Sturia Caviar on Crème Fraiche Cracker with air-dried beef sandwiched in between, and the gravlax-style Rock Rose Gin Marinated Salmon with Oyster boasting the fine flavours of Loch Fyne in Scotland, finished with a zingy and refreshing dessert of airy Sable of Mango and Lime Curd.
The six-course dinner by Christopher Millar at The Library, Ritz-Carlton Kuala Lumpur is priced at RM350 nett, or RM500 nett with wine-pairing. Only available from today until November 4 2017 from 7pm until 11pm, kindly call +603-21428000 or email [email protected] for reservations and enquiries.
