Temptations Senses at StarWorld Macau has invited Ms. Jeannie Cho Lee, Master of Wine and the author of the top-selling book, Asian Palate, to collaborate with the hotel's Executive Chef, Joe Chan, for a series of wine pairing dinners themed for various top wine-producing countries.

The Rising Stars of Italy Wine Pairing Dinner which started last month will be available until October 2012 at Temptations Senses.

The variety of Italian wine is vast, ranging from the rich and full-bodied reds of Chianti in Tuscany, to the light, fruity whites such as indigenous varietal Moscato, which have been gaining influence and popularity in Asia in recent years.

"The Rising Stars of Italy" Wine Pairing Dinner features antipasto dishes such as - Beef Carpaccio with Truffles; Seared Tuna with Chives, Capsicum, Olives, Smoked Salmon and Parma Ham with Melon; and Buffalo Mozzarella & Tomato. Renato Ratti Dolcetto Colombe DOC 2011, which means "little sweet wine" in Italian, is a perfect match with the 4 antipasto. Its low tannins and red cherries flavor help to ensure diners have a good appetite to enjoy the following dishes.

After 20 minutes of cooking to al dente, Risotto with Morels gains a rich flavor of cheese, accompanied by chewy French Morels. The risotto goes in harmony with the fruity Marchesi di Gresy, Langhe Nebbiolo Martinenga DOC 2010.

 Baked Sea Bass with pine nuts and lemon dressing is a well known dish in Italian households. The Chef has also selected Wagyu beef cheeks as an alternative choice for guests, which are cooked over at least four days with numerous cooking steps in order to achieve a tender and tasty texture. Both courses are enhanced by the Casanuova di Nittardi Chianti Classico DOCG 2009. The rich blackberry and tobacco flavor not only goes well with the beef but also complements the sea bass with sun dried tomatoes.

In order to highlight the Italian tiramisu that follows, Master Jeannie has selected a sweet La Spinetta Moscato Bricco Quaglia 2011.

StarWorld Macau advocates quality and affordable fine-dining experience. "The Rising Stars of Italy" Wine Pairing Dinner is only M$688 (plus 10% service charge) per person.

Ms. Jeannie Cho Lee is in Bangkok this week for the 13th World Gourmet Festival taking place at the Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok.
