Sorrento, Shangri-La’s - Eros Hotel, New Delhi – For the waistline-watching dad, there is plenty on offer on Father’s Day. Sorrento is offering the Au Naturel menu, from June 1 till June 30, which ensures that healthful eating does not need to be boring. The menu, which has wellbeing and fitness as its cornerstones, trains the spotlight on Italian cuisine but without its high-calorie trimmings. Curated by Executive Chef Neeraj Tyagi, who is trained under Michelin Star Chef Florent Boivin at the Culinary Institute Paul Bocuse in Lyon, the menu’s flavours are amplified not with copious quantities of butter and cream but through an intelligent processing of the ingredients themselves. For instance, the Potato Ravioli has the ravioli shell crafted from thinly sliced potato that is cooked sous vide to get an al dente texture. Similarly, the six- grain risotto has different kinds of grains that are allowed to release their starch in order to impart a creamy texture. The main courses carry forward the healthy theme too. The Pan Seared Chilean Sea Bass is nudged to new heights of succulence with a side of quinoa pilaf that has a high nutrient content.
