Award-winning cook serves Diners with Gastronomic Delights at Shang's Lafite

THIS year Lafite in Shangri-La Hotel Kuala Lumpur will be celebrating not only a new dining concept but also the presence of award winning chef Kevin Cherkas in its kitchen.

Cherkas, who was recently appointed Chef de Cuisine of Lafite, will be responsible for designing a new menu to take gastronomy in the city to a whole new level.

During the re-launch of the restaurant, the 29-year-old award- winning chef surprised guests with a preview to his new menu.

So much: Cherkas with the perspex tower of desserts.
After an interesting cocktail session, guests were ushered into the main circular dining area where Cherkas, a Canadian, continued to surprise guests by not leaving a menu on the table but introducing each dish as it was brought to the diner’s table.

The four different dishes served were Sole “Meuniere”, Truffle Baked Potato, Lobster Texture and his childhood favourite Spaghetti and Meat Ball.

Cherkas has worked at some of the world’s most outstanding restaurants in Spain, including the three-Star Michelin Arzak Restau-rant in San Sebastian, two-Star Michelin La Broche in Madrid and three-Star El Bulli in Roses.

Delightful: The Lobster Texture made by Cherkas.
For dessert, guests were invited to an open area where a sparkling perspex tower filled with more than 15 different desserts was placed.

Guests were also served coffee and tea after dessert.

The restaurant also has two private dining areas for intimate parties and dedicated cigar humidor for cigar aficionados.

There is also a bar for cocktails and pre-dinner drinks.

The restaurant was awarded the “Golden Cauldron Award'' at the Kuala Lumpur International Gourmet Festival last year.
