Taste Of Italy Afternoon Tea At Cucina
Promotion: January 21 - December 31, 2021 (261 days left)
For Cucina's newest afternoon tea menu, chef Andrea Delzanno starts things in the south with spicy Calabrian chilli pepper stuffed with tuna, along with almonds from the south of Italy that go into the duck liver terrine with almond macaron. Lastly, pistachios from Bronte are used in the traditional dessert of Sicilian cannoli with custard, as well as the chocolate sphere with pistachio mousse.
As we journey through central Italy, pizza with Parma ham and rocket salad is made with 24-month Parma ham from Naples, followed by sweet treats such as lemon chocolate lollipop, candied fruits and ricotta cheese tart, and bruschetta with tomato, avocado and red onion, a classic canapé from Lazio.
The menu also highlights northern Italian delights such as Bomboloni, deep-fried with a chocolate filling and raspberry sauce, while the mini Veneto tiramisu can be ‘drunk’ straight out of its chocolate cup. The heirloom tomato jelly with crab meat and mozzarella presents Caprese salad in jelly form alongside seafood and pesto, while the assorted mini cone with puff is filled with fresh fruit mousse, a typical Piedmontese treat that’s chef Andrea’s childhood favourite.
The Taste of Italy afternoon tea is priced at HK$508 for two persons and includes two drinks. For enquiries, please contact +852 2113 0808.
