During the month of March, Aqua Restaurant at the Four Seasons Bosphorus hotel will be offering a special degustation menu paired with wines from the reknowned Gaja winery. Established in 1859 by Giovanni Gaja in Italy’s Piemonte region, and still family run today, Gaja is most famous for their Barbaresco and Barolo wines, with their wines distributed in Turkey through Adco Gıda. Aqua’s special tasting menu is prepared by Executive Chef Mehmet Gök and his sous chef Luca de Astis, and offers traditional Italian flavors.
The menu includes a number of delectable options, such as the the pumpkin and leek risotto served with quail and qauil’s egg, the Fontina cheese fondue with porcini sott’olio served with endive, and the beef brisket and Nebbiolo grapes served on a bed of smoked eggplant and quince flavored with gremolata. For dessert French pastry chef Ghislain Gaille has prepared a chocolate globe filled with chocolate mouse and lemon crème, served with caramel and hazelnut ice cream. For those who prefer a less indulgent meal, you can also select from the two or three course menus. Çırağan Caddesi No. 28 Four Seasons Hotel; P: (0212) 381 40 59
