‘Bring Me Food’ with Guest Chef Andrew Blundy at Tosca, DoubleTree by Hilton

Oh.. we are so excited about ‘Bring Me Food’ with Guest Chef Andrew Blundy at Tosca, DoubleTree by Hilton!

 

So how, exactly, does a London pub, the type of establishment not exactly known for its haute cuisine, in a country that’s famously (if erroneously) known for a miserable foodie culture, get awarded a Michelin star, the height of European foodie awards?

Good question.

Michelin guide accredited Chef Andrew Blundy.. animated, knowledgeable.. and immensely entertaining!

And good thing we got to ask it to Chef Andrew Blundy himself, as he was the one serving at that very pub, called The Fox, at Broughton Gifford, when the Michelin star was awarded.

Nestled in the heart of this popular and picturesque village, The Fox at Broughton Gifford is a rather unique pub. You see, they created a seasonal british inspired menu, with some classical touches, so much so that at some point, they began raising their own pigs to produce their own house charcuterie, air cured hams, wet cured hams, sausages and even bacon, and also baked a substantial amount of their own bread. What they didn’t produce in house they sourced from The Thoughtful Bread Company, which is arguably the areas premier ethical bakery. The Fox also has a substantial vegetable and herb garden from where they get all their own home grown herbs. Add to this a very good selection of west country beers and ciders, and an interesting wine and spirit list, and it is no surprise that this place garnered a michelin star, just by the very spinach cheese omelet that Chef Andrew Blundy cooked that one fateful day for the right guest, on that momentous and life-changing (for a restaurant anyway) occasion.

And what does all this have to do with anything? Well, the famous Chef Blundy has in fact, arrived on our shores. Tosca, the Italian restaurant at DoubleTree by Hilton Kuala Lumpur has come up with a Modern Italian promotion from the 22nd October – 30th November, featuring Michelin guide accredited Chef Andrew Blundy, who has more than 25 years of experience under his belt! Lucky us, we got to check it out last week. Chef Blundy is also introducing “Bring Me Food”, a traditional family-style dining in Italy that allows diners to share, taste and sample a variety of dishes with friends and family. Diners only need to decide the price for the meal from RM80++ per person upwards, till RM150++ and beyond, and Chef Blundy will cook up dishes for sharing. If you are lucky.. he might just cook his award winning, spinach cheese omelet for you.. maybe!

The big, smiley chef.. He’s so nice and down to earth.. you wouldn’t think he was such an accomplished Chef!

This chef believes in keeping things simple. And though molecular gastronomy has its place, one should not go overboard. Common sense, some talent behind the stove, and using the freshest produce, is more important, in creating phenomenal cuisine.

Whipping up some magic.. big chef style!

And when told to finish the sentence – “If I were not a Chef, I would be… ” He replied simply in one word – “unhappy”.
