February 28, 2019 - The Boka Gastronomic Trilogy is the name of the dinner organized by the Regent Pop-up Restaurant on 28 February from 7 pm.
This gastronomic symphony is prepared by the winners of the Regent's pop-ups competition: Julija Deković, Damir Moškov, and Lidija Latković. The tables will feature black rice, Škartoc fish, Kotor's pašta and Bishop's bread.
"We are looking forward to this project and this dinner, and we are grateful for the recipes and in particular the friendships we have with the winners," said Željko Knezović, Food and Beverage Manager at Hotel Regent, adding: "We rewarded the author at a social gathering on Tuesday, February 19, and their names will be found along with the Regent restaurant's Pop up menu. On the same evening, we organized a trial cook, where the authors and the great masters, revealed their little tricks, which we are especially grateful. This good energy and exchange of experiences is a guarantee of irresistible tastes for the dinner on 28th February."
Regent's kitchen manager, Marko Živković, points out that it was a pleasure to discover the secrets of local gourmet artists: "We have chosen dishes that fit into our concept, and we are delighted that we will be able to present our local gastro-culture to our guests. Selected meals will be on our menu as one of the four gastro lines, and guests can enjoy it by the end of March. It is possible that some of these dishes will fit into the restaurant offer during the summer months when the concept will be significantly different and adapted to the international clientele."
Asked how local, Bokelian dishes are tailored to the "fine dining" concept, Marko responds: "These are delicious dishes that we will prepare as our rewarded chefs taught us. Our intervention only applies to serve."
Dinner is 30 euros per person. This project aims to show the gastronomic identity of Boka Bay and to give importance to the indigenous Bokelian and hinterland dishes as part of Hotel Regent's offerings, as reported by the hotel.
