Introducing Tuğra’s Signature Truffles
2013-11-21; A sweet finish to an Ottoman dining journey ...
Çırağan Palace Kempinski Istanbul’s Food and Beverage team has created another grand taste: Tuğra Truffles for its signature restaurant, Tuğra Restaurant & Lounge, which is located on the first floor of the historical Ottoman palace.
“We wanted the truffles to be really special, innovative, delicious and Ottoman. Tuğra Restaurant & Lounge is one of the city’s finest Ottoman cuisine restaurants. We wanted to keep up with its established image, while creating a brand new taste that guests will remember,” said Food and Beverage Director Michael Braun, whose team won Kempinski’s Best Food and Beverage Hotel 2013 Award. Executive Pastry Chef and Master Chocolatier, William McCarrick and his team created the unique truffle using dark chocolate, dried cherries, and Ottoman spices such as, cardamom, cinnamon, saffron, black pepper, cumin, paprika, cayenne pepper and thyme.
This chocolate palate-pleaser is best enjoyed with a fresh cup of Turkish coffee. Guests can enjoy Tuğra Truffels at home as well; they are available for purchase at Gazebo Lounge located at the ground floor of the hotel building.
Tuğra Restaurant & Lounge is open daily from 19.00 - 24.00.
