Venetian menu at The Luxe Manor this Summer

Bringing the heritage, the beauty and the romance of Italy to the fine dining scene in Hong Kong, Chef Stefano Poli, the new Executive Chef at The Luxe Manor‘s signature Italian restaurant Aspasia, has created a tasting menu of Venetian delights that bring the flavours of the country to life. A native of Venice himself, Chef Poli is not just an expert in the Italian culinary arts, but in the way that Italian people approach the importance of food in their culture and the way it brings friends and family together. In July and August 2009, diners will have the unrivalled experience of treating themselves to a truly Italian fine dining experience at Aspasia with an authentic and inspiring Venetian Menu. Intimate, romantic and steeped in Italian culinary traditions developed over centuries, Venetian cooking places an emphasis on bringing out the natural flavours of fresh seafood, paired with simple yet delicate vegetables; the finest cuts of meat served with sauces that highlight its tenderness and texture; and creative blends of fruits, vegetables and pastries in mouth-watering desserts. Dishes like Cod Fish Mantecato with Cannellini Bean Soup, Carnaroli Risotto with Black Ink Baby Squid and Red Prawn Prosecco Foam, Calf Liver Alla Veneziana with Braised Onion and Polenta Cake and Classic Fried Pumpkin Puff with Pumpkin Chantilly and Grappa di Saassicaia present Venetian cooking personified. This four-course meal, with the sommelier’s suggested Italian wine pairings optional, is a treat for all senses. In addition to dining on sumptuous Italian fare, guests will receive a special fancy dress mask to enhance the mood of the evening and inspire creativity and conversation!

  1. I have passion of traveling. Nowadays am planning to visit Asia, especially few places like, Da Nang, Mekong Delta, Ha Long Bay, Saigon, etc. There I would like to enjoy historical and cultural places. Can anyone recommend me an appropriate cultural tour or luxury travel tour?
