2-Star Michelin Chef Celebrates French Cuisine

14 Jun 2024

The Malaysian Insight, Kuala Lumpur, 8 June 2024 – Dilling is from the two Michelin-star restaurant named after himself in London. He is in EQ Kuala Lumpur for a culinary showcase, from now till June 15.

Hunter chicken is the chef’s signature dish, his refined take on chicken cacciatore, a classic Italian dish. “Cacciatore” comes from the Italian word for hunter, believed to have originated with Italian hunters preparing chicken over an open fire with the ingredients they had on hand. Dilling’s famed hunter chicken is covered with a thin, stripey layer of blended chicken mousse, and another of mushroom duxelle, almost like a beef Wellington, then finished with sauce albufera. It’s an intensely flavoured, dark, rich meat sauce that delivers the winning touch to the chicken. Hunter chicken was served with a delightful pomme purée and salad with a lemony dressing.

Kampachi X Nikka Five-Course Whisky Pairing Dinner

10 Jun 2024

Kuala Lumpur, 7 June 2024 – An exquisite dinner evening featuring fine Japanese whisky and Kampachi’s exceptional cuisine was held on Friday. The evening began with a first course of golden eye snapper, yellowtail, scallops, and spotted prawn sashimi, beautifully paired with Taketsuru pure malt whisky. This was followed by a second course of simmered duck with asparagus, with the main course being the highly anticipated Miyazaki wagyu.

It was a memorable dining experience and a unique opportunity to purchase some of the last remaining bottles of the much-acclaimed Taketsuru 17- and 21-year whiskies in Malaysia. These whiskies, known for their exceptional quality, have been discontinued due to depleted stock driven by unprecedented demand. Both expressions have received prestigious accolades, including awards from the World Whisky Awards and the International Spirits Challenge.
