Talented Italian and executive chef Antimo Maria Merone shares these three exclusive dishes with FDL for veal shank tortelli, lobster salad with beetroot puree and grefeuille AAA lamb to try at home.
Each of the creative dishes was presented by the chef at a live S.Pellegrino sponsored a dinner held at the luxurious Park Hyatt Saigon Pool House in October 2015. Chef Merone cooked a five course dinner, including these three recipes, much to the delight of the foodie guests.
Merone attributes his culinary philosophy to his early childhood spent baking bread and bottling tomatoes at his grandmother’s house in rural Napoli, Italy.
As a professional chef Merone has worked under some culinary greats including chef Massimo Camia, chef Antonino Cannavacciuolo and chef Philippe Léveillé gaining a wealth of technical experience both in restaurants in Italy and abroad.
