MICHELIN-STARRED CHEF RICCARDO SCULLI PRESENTS “BAREFOOT IN THE SAND” AT SORRENTO - The restaurant offers Italian dishes from the coast of Italy to the heart of New Delhi

New Delhi, 18 February 2017 – Sorrento, the award-winning Italian restaurant at Shangri-La’s - Eros Hotel, New Delhi, offers its patrons an authentic Italian experience titled “Barefoot in the Sand”, a handcrafted menu by Michelin two-starred Chef Riccardo Sculli.


Having long been captivated and driven by the flavours of the pristine waters and the sandy beaches of the Ionian coast, the richly evocative menu enthrals with the style, taste and the very quality of the raw ingredients themselves.


A special a la carte menu has been curated for lunch and features some of Chef Riccardo’s signature dishes, such as Carpaccio di Aragosta e Verdure (Lobster Carpaccio with Seasonal Salad and Tomato Gelè) and Risotto allo Zafferano con Mud Granchio e Ribes Rosso (Saffron Risotto, Mud Crab and Red Currants). For dinner, Chef Riccardo has designed a special degustation menu featuring culinary masterpieces, such as Costoletta di Agnello con Carciofi e Liquirizia (Rack of Lamb with Artichokes and Liquorice) and Pollo Ruspante con Peperoni e Arancia (Free-Range Chicken with Peppers and Orange).


Keeping in line with the traditions and rich culinary heritage of Calabria, some of Sorrento’s best wine selections will be paired with the stunning menu.


Chef Riccardo has especially flown down to curate this experience for the culinary enthusiasts of Delhi. He is the first chef from Reggio Calabria to have received a Michelin star and is currently the head chef at Ristorante Gambero Rosso in Marina di Gioiosa Ionica RC, Italy.
