Three-Star Exquisite Michelin Dinner at Come Prima Kempinski Hotel Grand Arena Bansko: Culinary Masters from Da Vittorio and Come Prima Unite

29 March 2024, Bansko - In an unprecedented culinary event, the Italian restaurant Da Vittorio, awarded with three stars from the culinary bible "Michelin" and Come Prima, repeatedly awarded by the World Culinary Awards joined efforts to offer an incomparable gastronomic experience in the prestigious Kempinski Hotel Grand Arena Bansko.

The event took place on 29 March at the Come Prima restaurant in an elegant setting with a five-course menu in a harmonious combination of Italian and Bulgarian culinary traditions, curated by the acclaimed chefs: Chef Enrico-Chicco Cerea and Chef Nikola Todorov. The five-course Michelin menu began with Bergamo-style olives, offering a glimpse of the legendary culinary contribution of team Da Vittorio, accompanied by parmesan nibbles. The two "amuse-bouche" dishes, combined with Billecart-Salmon Blanc de Blanc Grand Cru set start off the evening. 

For a complete culinary triumph, each dish of the exclusive Bulgarian-Italian menu was paired with the precise wine from BNK, trusted partners of Kempinski Hotel Grand Arena Bansko. The three-star menu continued with a first course of tuna spaghetti with Bagna Cauda sauce and pistachio crumble, followed by green asparagus with sweet-and-sour marinade, yoghurt sorbet and sorrel. Appetisers were served with La Scolca Etichetta Nera Cortese Gavi dei Gavi wine. The middle course was presented with a "Chateau d'Esclan Estate" Rosé and had two components as well: risotto with guinea fowl ragout and foie gras and Black Sea turbot with morel mushroom, Ossetra caviar and ramson foam. For the main course, accompanied by Elegia Primitivo di Manduria Reserva, slow-cooked milk lamb was served with glazed baby vegetables, potato muslin and marsala essence. The end of the culinary spectacle was the serving of cannoncini- filled with rich velvety pastry to the tables of each attendee by the chefs: Chef Enrico-Chicco Cerea and Chef Nikola Todorov.

All this turned the evening into an unforgettable experience through the meticulously crafted dishes, each showcasing the pinnacle of culinary artistry and flavor.
