Chef spotlight: Dibyaraj Karki
With a passion for cooking that dates back to his childhood when he helped his mother prepare family meals, Karki has been with Rotana for more than 17 years, working his way up from a kitchen steward to sous chef. Passionate about using fresh and simple ingredients, he loves to create something new by pairing unusual flavour combinations.
Start off right:
We have lots of small plates that are ideal for a starter, but my personal favourite is our scotch egg because it has a unique flavour. Our signature recipe includes veal, sage and rather than a hard-boiled egg, we ensure each portion features a molten egg yolk. This is then perfectly complemented by a rich dill sauce.
The main attraction:
The key to this dish is the fresh ingredients as Atlantic salmon is renowned for its rich, robust flavour. We pair the fish with a creamy celeriac puree, a fresh tomato concasse and black olives. All of these flavours are subtle to ensure that it is the salmon that stands out as the star of the dish. This main course is always popular with our guests as it is both hearty and very healthy.
The big finish: Orange & pistachio cake
Last but no means least, this dessert is a real favourite with guests as pistachios add a divine flavour to the cake, while the juice from the orange ensures it is extremely moist. The two flavours pair so well together and it is topped with whipped cream that features a hint of vanilla and an array of fresh berries. It’s a great way to finish a meal.
