The St. Regis Bangkok Presents a 1-Michelin Starred Journey of the Senses by Chef Giovanni D’Alitta
Acclaimed chef from Stube Hermitage in Italy to present delightful tasting menus at Jojo from 29th May – 1st June 2019
The St. Regis Bangkok invites diners to explore the pantry of mother nature with Chef Giovanni D’Alitta from the 1-Michelin-starred Stube Hermitage restaurant in Madonna di Campiglio. Fresh ingredients and wild plants are meticulously crafted into simply exquisite dishes showcased in lunch and dinner tasting menus at Jojo from Wednesday 29th May to Saturday 1st June 2019.
Under his helm, Chef Giovanni led Stube Hermitage to regain its 1-Michelin star recognition in 2019, a distinction the restaurant earned in 2008 when it was the first restaurant in the premier mountain ski resort village to be awarded a Michelin star.
At Jojo, Chef Giovanni will be presenting his signature style of harmonizing flavor, aesthetics, and wellbeing. Dishes such as Risotto allo Zafferano (saffron risotto, roasted lobster and foie gras) draw influences from around Italy and with hints of the East. Other dishes including Gnocchi di patata di Montagna (mountain potatoes dumpling, roasted mushroom sauce and Gorgonzola fondue) artfully illustrate the simple pleasures of local produce.
Growing up in the southern Italian region of Basilicata, the mountains hold a special place in Chef Giovanni’s heart. Controlled and unhurried, his colorful creations such as Tortino di Ricotta e Primizie (warm sheep’s milk ricotta cake, raw vegetables, green pea and cardamom) bring diners on his personal journey of wholesome ingredients with an emphasis on seasonal produce and wild herbs.
