Enrico Bartolini at Shangri-La Hotel, Jakarta

From 25th to 29th October 2016, Shangri-La Hotel, Jakarta took part in the excitement of the acclaimed Shangri-La International Festival of Gastronomy by presenting the Michelin two-starred Chef Enrico Bartolini from Devero Restaurant in Milan, Italy to showcase his unique menu at Rosso. The chef received his first Michelin star when he was just 29 and his second at 33. Along with three Gambero Rosso forks and three L’Espresso Guide chef hats, the stars sealed his reputation as an internationally renowned chef. Ever enterprising and imaginative, Bartolini has collaborated on a variety of culinary projects, including partnering with Krug Champagne on its “pop-up” restaurant in Italy, developing a menu for first-class travellers on the airline Emirates, launching a line of beers with the Angelo Poretti Brewery and working with fashion brand Hermes to create dishes for its collection launch in Milan. Chef Bartolini’s style is contemporary classic – a merging of modern innovative culinary techniques and traditional culinary values.  This gastronomic merger of present and past to create original flavours has led to Bartolini being described as innovative, balanced and meditative.
