Gradini Ristorante E Bar Italiano Shines its Spotlight on Seasonal White Truffles

(Hong Kong, 23 November 2021) — Gradini Ristorante E Bar Italiano at The Pottinger Hong Kong salutes its culinary homeland with a grand six-course Italian White Truffle Tasting Menu, presented until 19 December 2021 only. This seasonal epicurean experience features rustic Italian dishes lavishly adorned with white truffles – the “diamonds of gastronomy” – savoured within the restaurant’s setting of sparkling, old world charm.

 

Executive Chef Cano’s meticulously crafted dishes are deceptively simple, designed to showcase one of the world’s most prized delicacies. Gourmet ingredients are the backdrop for generous toppings of freshly shaved white truffle, whose marbled pattern, earthy, elegant flavour and intoxicating aroma transport diners on a multi-sensory gastronomic journey.

 

The White Truffle Tasting Menu appropriately starts with the classic Italian entrée Parma Ham with Italian Melon and Truffle Honey, followed by Scrambled Eggs with Baby Spinach which, when crowned with fragrant white truffles, is a match made in heaven. The rich, creamy Orzetto with Porcini and White Truffle is pure indulgence. The inimitable depth of white truffle flavour enhances the succulent sweetness of Langoustine, Asparagus and White Truffle and the mouth-watering tenderness of Grilled Wagyu Sirloin with Truffle Mashed Potatoes and Morel Jus. Fittingly for truffle lovers, the sweet finale is a luxurious White Chocolate Mousse with White Truffle. For those who can never get enough of the white gems, additional white truffle shavings are available throughout the dinner for HK$138 per gram.

 

To make the already extravagant meal even more memorable, guests can choose a five-glass wine pairing option for an additional HK$600 per person.

 

The White Truffle Tasting Menu is HK$1,588 per person plus 10% service charge, with exclusive 10% savings for Sino Club members, available daily from 6:30 to 11 p.m. For reservations, please place online at https://bit.ly/wttm-pren or telephone 2308 3088. Gradini Ristorante E Bar Italiano is located at Lobby Level, The Pottinger Hong Kong, 74 Queen’s Road Central, Central, Hong Kong (main entrance at 21 Stanley Street).
