Dinner by Guest Chef Micael Valentim
29 October, Melaka, Malaysia – Announcing “A Taste of Portugal”, Casa del Rio has invited Chef Micael Valentim from Western Algarve, Portugal to present authentic modern Portuguese cuisine. This is a special one-time only event scheduled on 7 November at the hotel’s grill room – River Grill.
Currently the Executive Chef of Martinhal Beach Resort & Hotel in Western Algarve, Chef Valemtim is known for using genuine and authentic local produce in his cooking, which followed time-honoured methods of preparations.
As the first hotel built on the bank of the idyllic Melaka River, Casa del Rio’s distinct Mediterranean architecture, design and colour pay homage to the Portuguese influence on Melaka. The décor and furnishing welcome guests to this “Home by the River” or “Casa del Rio” in Spanish.
In honour of this shared heritage with the Portuguese, “A Taste of Portugal” is to celebrate all things Portuguese and “Gente Kristang”, the surviving descendants of Alfonso De Albuquerque who conquered Malacca in 1511. Today, this community is a distinct cultural group in Melaka, the descendants keep their Portuguese surnames, celebrate the traditions and some still speak Creole Portuguese. A special tour of “Portuguese Melaka” is planned for guests to experience the local Portuguese cuisine, meet the people and learn about their culture.
