Ever dream of a Charlie and the chocolate factory themed Christmas? The Westin Kuala Lumpur team is out to make that a reality this Yuletide season with chocolicious highlights taking centrestage.
According to Executive Chef Halim Chek Lah, the idea is to push his team to raise their culinary game in working with chocolate. “Although the ingredient of choice is focused mainly on dessert and sweets, everyone has to think creatively and learn how to make the best use of premium Callebaut chocolate. We also experimented with uniquely flavoured variants such as sea salt and dark chocolate, resulting in 30 different desserts for our festive menus.”
PALATE-PLEASERS FROM PREGO
Chef Marco De Cecco and his team proffers Pizza di Natale with Chocolate, Saffron Risotto and Parmigiana Panna Cotta. Homely servings of Seafood Salad, platters of Pasta, Salami and Assorted Cured Meat with Cheeses and Panettone (Italian sweet bread with raisins and candied fruit) among other temptations will be on the menu too.
