Chef Glady, Executive Head Chef at Per Te Italian Restaurant Dubai, has quite a few tricks up his sleeves! If you liked his risotto recipe that I posted here earlier, the picture below will surely make you drool:
This is Chef Glady’s take on Costa di mandorle costolette di agnello (or Almond Crusted Lamb Chops for those not blessed with an Italian tongue!).
It is a surprisingly easy recipe given how good it looks and tastes. If you are just starting your journey into Italian cooking, this dish is guaranteed to get you praises in no time. Read on for the recipe.
When it comes to risotto, the Italians turn into perfectionists. After rigorous training under some of the world’s best Italian chefs, Per Te’s Executive Chef, Gladwin Anton (fondly known as Chef Glady) has mastered the fine art of Italian cooking, a mean feat given he hails from a vastly different ethnic background (Chef Glady is an Indian national).
Being able to cook the perfect risotto elevates you to the status of a well-respected Italian chef, and Chef Glady has built a reputation around his very own risotto creations.
Today Chef Glady has generously agreed to share a very special risotto recipe with us:
Selvatici Risotto ai Funghi al Tartufo (Wild Mushroom Risotto with Truffles).
In Italian, ‘Per Te’ translates to ‘for you’, an apt name for Jumeirah’s newest Italian restaurant located in Jumeirah 1 (right behind Jumeirah Plaza, Beach Road, Dubai).
Hubby was skeptical about dining here. In his opinion, Italian cooking is overrated and simply involves massive overdoses of pasta sauce and cheese. Our dinner at Per Te last Friday managed to make him a convert, and he’s been raving about the restaurant all week!
