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.
