In connection with the newly-opened Curate at Resorts World Sentosa, the Society has arranged a BYO lunch event with Three-Star Michelin Chef Massimiliano Alajmo from Italy. Chef Massimiliano Alajmo was just 28 when the Michelin Guide bestowed his family’s Italian restaurant La Calandre its three star status in 2002, making him one of the youngest executive chefs to earn that coveted distinction. Today, the 42-year-old is an accomplished multi-hyphenate in and outside of the kitchen. Together with his brother Raffaele and sister Laura, he is a part of the fifth generation of the Alajmo family of chefs and restaurateurs, and oversees the kitchens of La Calandre and the family’s other two restaurants Ristorante Quadri and La Montecchi, with a total of five Michelin stars among them; as well as a network of bistros, Il Calandrino, abc Quadri, abc Montecchia, and Caffè Stern in Paris. Besides sitting on the board of directors and regularly lecturing at Italian culinary school, the Master della Cucina Italiana, chef Alajmo has also published an award-winning cookbook entitled “In.gredienti” and owns Le Essenze, a line of pure essential oil sprays, and alajmo.design, a collection of tableware designed by the Alajmo brothers and produced by renowned Italian craftsmen.
The BYO theme for the lunch will be Grand Cru Burgundy with the following caveats. Each person will bring one bottle. Red Burgundies must be Grand Cru wines from Côte de Nuits with at least 10 years of age. White Burgundies must be Grand Cru wines from Côte de Beaune with at least 5 years of age. We will supply two bottles of champagne per table for the apéritif. Please feel free to create your own tables of 8 but please let Laurence know.
The afternoon promises to be quite a lot of fun. I sincerely hope you will be able to join us during this long Labour Day weekend.
