So what do you guys think of a road trip?

Ok, then how about an Italian Road Trip?

This road trip is probably not the same which crossed your mind. In fact, this Italian Road Trip is about an ongoing culinary trip through certain regions of Italy namely: Piedmont, Sicily & Tuscany. This Italian Food Festival is running at one of the best restaurants for Italian Cuisine in Bangalore: ALBA at the JW Marriott Hotel.

They have an elaborate a la carte menu for this but we tried a set menu consisting of Antipasti, Primi, Secondi & Dolci.




We had the following items:

Milfoil with slow cooked chicken with roasted bell pepper, charcoal onion and garlic and anchovies sauce: Beautiful presentation, perfectly cooked chicken, light smoked onions and a mouth-watering sauce were its highlights!

Home-made pappardelle, duck ragout & smoked duck: The highlights were the smoked and juicy strips of duck along with the ragout which not only blended well with the pappardelle pasta but tasted phenomenal! The pasta was al dente.

Chilean Sea Bass with Trapani style Couscous and Ghiotta sauce: Even magnificent does not come close to how well the fish was done. It was juicier than any sea bass we tasted before. The texture of the couscous along with the sauce complemented well with the fresh fish.

Cacao, Amaretti & caramel pudding with blueberry: It was mildly sweet with well-defined layers and soft too. A scoop of this with the blueberry alongside and enjoy the magic! There was a lot of cacao in it which also gave it a bitter after taste.

Now that’s a very short snippet of what we thought of this lip smacking Italian Road Trip.
We tried two other items: A ravioli preparation with ricotta and eggplant ragout and another dessert called the fruit cannolo which was very heavy.

All the items we tried were high on natural flavours and brilliantly executed.
