Michelin Star Chef Francesc Rovira Canudas from the acclaimed La Fonda Xesc in Girona, Spain is set to delight diners at LTITUDE Restaurant, Genting Grand Hotel, Resorts World Genting in October 2016.
The Executive Chef will be creating a special menu which will showcase the flavours and finesse that earned him his star in 2009. The six-course degustation dinner, to be held on 7 and 8 October 2016 will introduce diners to the farm-to-table concept that La Fonda Xesc has become known for.
Unlike the chic sophistication of most Michelin-starred restaurants, La Fonda Xesc has made a name for itself for replacing sophistication with simplicity and authenticity where rural, farmhouse style food is transformed into a hearty, Spanish Soul Food with a highly accomplished twist.
For two nights only, guests will be able to be transported into this delectable tableau of flavours when Chef Rovira recreates the magic of La Fonda Xesc at LTITUDE Restaurant. His six-course menu will begin with an amuse bouche of langoustine, basil and soy, followed by a cold tomato and crab soup with cream cheese, herring eggs, coriander and ginger.
Lobster with seasonal vegetables, wild mushrooms and saffron will serve as the entree, with a main course (fish) of sea bass, zucchini, peach, grape and fennel. The meat course is an artisanal beef and pork burger with chard, mustard and a Valdubon wine sauce. Dessert will highlight Spain's heady freixenet cava with red berries, lychees and lemon verbena.
As fitting a chef inspired by avant garde Catalan maestro chefs Santi Santamaria and Xavier Pellicer, expect cuisine with a personalised, spontaneous feel, rooted in the deep traditions of Spanish cuisine, and elevated to unimagined heights of mastery.
