A taste of the Med.

Gastronauts Asia (the people behind Women in Gastronomy) are gearing up for a new "Sicilian Journey Series."

Starting on Nov 22-23, "Sicilian Journey Series Part One" will see Italian chef Martina Caruso—of Michelin starred Ristorante Signum in Salina, Italy—pay a visit to Bangkok's Rossini's

Chef Martina embraces the rich cultural history of Sicily in her cooking, delving into the full spectrum of Mediterranean flavors. Earlier this year, she won the Michelin Female Chef Award 2019 in Italy. This will mark her second visit to Bangkok, following a one night pop-up at Sathorn's Bunker last year.

For two nights, you can savor a seafood-focused six-course tasting dinner, featuring some of the chef's top dishes. Starters include bagna càuda—a fondue-like hot dish made from anchovies and garlic—with sea urchin, and mackerel confit with green olive soup, buffalo mozzarella and candied capers. For mains, you can expect pasta with mussels, zucchini and ragusano cheese, and snapper served with marinated lettuce, oranges and anchovies. End on a sweet note with a milk soup, containing chocolate, coffee and carob.

The dinners will be priced at B5,500 and B6,500 per head, with additional wine pairing curated by GFour Fine Wines and Spirits. 

Rossini's, Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit, 250 Sukhumvit Rd., 02-649-8888
