Michelin-Starred Chef Marcello Fabbri in KL @ Villa Danieli, Sheraton Imperial KL

We were super excited to be invited back to Villa Danieli this year for a special preview dinner with Michelin-starred Chef Marcello Fabbri. This will be his second time cooking at Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur (read about his last stint here) due to popular demand.

Chef Marcello Fabbri hails from Anna Amalia Restaurant in Hotel Elephant, Weimar, Germany which has a 1-Michelin star rating. His cooking principle is "Italian simplicity", with an exceptional interpretation of Mediterranean cuisine. This time, he will be in KL from 19 to 23 January 2017. Guests can choose to have either the Degustation Menu (priced at RM220 nett for food only, RM380 nett for food with wine pairing) or choose from a selection of a la carte dishes. The menu can be viewed here.

Dinner kicked off with Marcello Fabbri's Vitello Tonnato, the chef's interpretation of the classic Italian antipasto. Instead of only cold, veal slices topped with tuna sauce, Chef Marcello adds two more tuna components to the dish, tuna tartare as well as seared tuna. This dish excelled aesthetically as well as the flavour department. An outstanding start to our meal.

Amuse bouche - salmon roll

Next was the soup course, where we were served the Zuppa di Zucca - pumpkin soup served with scallops and roasted pumpkin seeds. The pumpkin soup was velvety smooth, with a hint of spiciness. Three plump scallops, battered and deep fried was sat amidst the soup.

The Risotto ai porcini came with an element of surprise - Parmesan ice cream! A quenelle of Parmesan ice cream sits atop the risotto - mix it in with the risotto, for a wonderfully rich and creamy finish. We loved it!

The Australian Black Angus Striploin for mains was perfectly cooked to a medium doneness. Tender and juicy, it was served with green asparagus, potato confit and black truffle shavings. The potato confit was exceptional, it almost stole the limelight from the steak.

For a sweet end, we had the Torta di Mele Granny Smith, a Granny Smith apple tart with apple soup and sorbet.
