Mezzo Mezzo celebrates Italian Chef Davide’s birthday with homestyle Italian fare

Was thrilled to find an invite from FBAI (Food Bloggers Association of India) to the exclusive Chef’s table dinner to celebrate Chef Davide’s birthday. Check out FBAI’s FB page  - Great for foodie updates across the country.

The special menu inspired by Chef Davide Canazi’s childhood is on offer for a week  till November 10th to celebrate Chef’s birthday on the 9th. The Chef’s fondness for using fresh ingredients and his passion for food make the special dishes on offer delicious and surprisingly light.

Had a superb meal made all the more special to see it all prepared in front of us. Seated at the Chef’s table, we ate a 3 course meal inspired by Chef Davide’s mother’s cooking providing the best of regional Italian cuisine:

Insalata Di Rucola, Nocie Pecorino Toscano, a salad of rocket, walnut and pecorino toscano cheese with marinated zucchini. Light and flavourful, each ingredient could be tasted…

Risotto Gamberetti E Zucchini, a shrimp risotto redolent with generous splashes of sauvignon blanc followed by

Crespelle Alle Mele Con Salsa Alla Arancia E Cointreau, light apple crepes with a Cointreau butter sauce

Totally delicious….

These specialities can be enjoyed a la carte, as a set menu or treat yourself to the Chef’s table.

Cost varies from Rs 2099 upwards (plus taxes) depending on what you opt for…. Try for the Chef’s table it’s a visual treat seeing Chef prepare each dish while explaining the ingredients  with the added  benefit of improving your cooking skills.

Rush as its on only till Sunday November 10th
