Fantastic Firsts - Tortelli Cacio e Pepe, Chef Andrea Aprea, Vun Restaurant, Park Hyatt Hilton, Milan


A quick trip to Milan earlier this week gave me an opportunity to meet Executive Chef Andrea Aprea at the Michelin star Vun Restaurant located in the Park Hyatt Hotel.  Chef Aprea - who's from Naples - made me feel right at home with a selection of delicious dishes from his Travelling Between North and South tasting menu .  Like this fantastic first -  tortelli pasta cacio e pepe.



The dish arrived served on a set of spoons resting on a bed of black peppercorns. Homemade pasta topped with aromatic caramelized onions.  Eat it in one bite, I was told.  Ok...so I did.  A mouthful of comfort and warmth.  A flavorful broth with pecorino cheese and onions.


Perfect for that cool rainy autumn evening...

Perfect?
No...
Fantastic...
