Snippets: Brand new Basilissimo menu at Basilico, Regent Singapore | A culinary tour through the Mediterranean Sea and Alps

What’s new? It’s the second half of 2016 in a flash, and one reason to feel excited is the new quarterly seasonal menus at Basilico for the rest of the year. Basilico Head Chef Luca Beccalli will be bringing to the table a new menu line-up of dishes influenced by the Mediterranean Sea and Alps. This three-course Basilissimo Dinner includes an appetiser and dessert buffet, and an à la carte main course.  A list of fine Italian wines has also been selected to perfectly complement the dishes on the menu.

Highlights of third quarter
From July 5 to October 3, the focus will be on the flavours from the mountains, showcasing characteristic regional specialities of southern Italy and the mountainous inland regions. The inspiration for the menu comes from Mediterranean islands such as Sicily and Sardinia, as well as creations influenced by the regions along the Italian boot’s heel – Calabria, Basilicata and Puglia.

For mains, there is the classic Cavatielli Pasta with Baby Cuttlefish, Mussels, Lentils, Aglio Olio and Bottarga, an Italian delicacy of salted, cured fish roe.

Alternatively, you can opt for the Palermo-style Swordfish with Vegetable Pinzimonio, Beetroot Purée and Fresh Herbs.

Desserts include the Toscano Black Chocolate Tart with Marsala Chantilly, and a rich homemade Pistachio Gelato with Olive Oil and Sea Salt. I can’t decide which I prefer, but I am bias towards Pistachio. This version is really rich and good.

Highlights of fourth quarter From October 4 to December 31, diners can expect a menu highlighting flavours from the Alps, covering most of the northern territories in Italy.

For cheese lovers, you must try the Chef’s Braised Beef Cheeks Cannelloni served over Light Parmesan Velouté.
