Famed Nobu Chefs to Cook in St. Moritz at Badrutt's Palace this Winter
Of all the supernova talent currently blazing through the culinary firmament, none burns quite as brightly as Nobu. With his innovative and wholly original combination of traditional Japanese ingredients and Peruvian sensibilities, Nobuyuki Matsuhisa is the toast of the international celebrity dining circuit and serious epicures from New York to Vegas, London to L.A. Now, for a short time, Nobu’s chefs will reign supreme in the Swiss Alps as well, as Badrutt’s Palace Hotel in St. Moritz features the master chef’s new-style Japanese creations during a special culinary promotion this winter.
From January 15 to March 14, 2004, the Trattoria Restaurant at Badrutt’s Palace will featuring an extensive array of Matsuhisa’s legendary creations, such as Tiradito Black Cod with Miso, New Style Sashimi, and many others from the famed Nobu a la carte menu. The perfection of every dish will be assured throughout, as restaurant and food operations at Trattoria will be overseen by culinary artisans from Nobu, including European Director Kurt Zdesar and U.S. Director Ritchie Notar.
Meanwhile, each night in the super-stylish King’s Club at Badrutt’s Palace, the Nobu team will be serving sushi and introducing world-class and inventive Nobu cocktails such as the Apple Martini (Halle Berry’s all-time favorite), the Lychee Martini, and the Japanese-inspired Saketini, to name but a few. Sebastian Barbara, the celebrated mixologist at Nobu London, will do the shaking and stirring from 7:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. nightly, and thirsty guests may also choose from a scintillating selection of chilled fruit sakes.
As thrilling as the Nobu winter special is and it is don’t forget that the favorite address of celebrity in St. Moritz also boasts the award-winning cuisine of Italian master chef Enrico Derflingher, who began as Chef de Cusine at Badrutt’s Palace at the start of the Winter season. The much-feted star chef, who once enthralled Princess Di with his creations at Kensington Palace, has attained Five Star Diamond status in 2000, 2002 and 2003. Derflingher’s light and distinct interpretations of Mediterranean cuisine will be a highlight of the 11th St. Moritz Gourmet Festival from February 2-7, 2004, including the legendary Kitchen Party at Badrutt’s Palace, where guests can watch over the chef?s shoulders from 11 p.m. until the early hours. Bon Appetit!
