A four-course, wine-pairing menu by two Michelin star chef and Officer of the Order of the British Empire Anton Mosimann was good reason for busy members of the business community and Swiss expats to head to Marco Polo Ortigas for lunch. Mosimann is recognized for his work heading the culinary teams that served five British Prime Ministers and several royal banquets including the nuptials of Diana and Prince Charles to Kate and Prince William. His signature cooking style, also referred to as “cusine naturelle,” was experienced that day through famous dishes like Marinated Salmon with Dorset Crab and the late Princess Diana’s all time favorite, Risotto ai Funghi. Joining the select group was Her Excellency Ambassador Andrea Reichlin, who chatted with guests on the close working relationships between the Philippine and Switzerland.
