Members of award-winning international luxury concierge service, Quintessentially Lifestyle were treated to an intimate and exclusive fine dining experience with Marco Pierre White hosted by The Cinnamon Grand.
The event was hosted exclusively for Members of Quintessentially Lifestyle, Land Rover Ultimate Members and their guests at The London Grill, Cinnamon Grand. Attendees were among the top echelons of Sri Lankan society including Prime Minister Ranil Wickramasinghe. Guests were not only given the opportunity to savour the carefully curated wine paired dinner but did so in the company of the well-respected Chef himself. The dinner included beautifully presented renditions of classic fine dining dishes such as carefully garnished Smoked Trout, Lamb Dijonnaise served with Gratin Dauphinois, and British Beef Tenderloin. All the dishes were articulately paired with a wine to compliment each dish, and many of the ingredients were specially imported from The United Kingdom with the aid of the British High Commission in Sri Lanka.
Celebrated as one of the true legends of contemporary cuisine, Marco earned his third Michelin star at the age of 33, becoming the youngest Chef to ever cross the prestigious culinary milestone. He has since gone on to become a celebrated restaurateur, television personality, and author who has trained many of the world’s current leading Chefs including Gordan Ramsay, Heston Blumenthal, Curtis Stone, and Shannon Bennett.
Marco, who was in the island as part of the UK Food Week 2016 organised by the British High Commission in partnership with Cinnamon Life, Trekurious, HSBC, Land Rover, Knorr, Sri Lankan Airlines, and Quintessentially Lifestyle – has been touring Sri Lanka to sample its rich biodiversity and of course, its famous, traditional cuisine.
