Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, October 18, 2016 – The Ritz-Carlton, Kuala Lumpur has long commanded an enviable address and more so after it was re-launched in March 2016. Through the years, the hotel has carved its own niche in gastronomic experiences through its portfolio of fine restaurants that have hosted many momentous events. In contrast to the soft, relaxing ambience of the guest rooms and suites, the restaurants are imbued with energy, where they are envisioned to become hubs of culinary dynamism in a city already famed for its cuisine.

Come October 25 to 29, 2016, Executive Chef Jose Alonso who helms the Binomio Spanish Restaurante in Singapore, debuts his creations in Malaysia at The library at The Ritz-Carlton, Kuala Lumpur. He will take guests on a specially curated Spanish gastronomic journey that includes his signature dishes namely Arroz Negro (Squid ink paella with clams and calamari), Croquetas de Pollo y Huevo (Chicken and boiled egg croquettes) and Tallarines de sepia con Sofrito (Grilled cuttlefish served with Sofrito and veal vinaigrette).

Chef Jose honed his culinary skills after having worked for 10 years with many celebrity chefs, who include Michelin award-winning Sergi Arola, Francis Paniego and Spain's most celebrated Chef, Santi Santamaria. Chef Jose believes in serving cuisine that remains true to its Spanish roots and is prepared using only fresh ingredients of the highest quality. He uses seasonal produce whenever available to offer his guests variety. His food philosophy is to have respect for the produce and to be honest with the guests. No food should leave the kitchen that they themselves would not eat.

About The Library
