Celebrating Mother’s Day At Cucina

Cucina mother's day (20)

My family and I had a wonderful mother’s day at Cucina restaurant in Hotel Missoni. They had a set menu specially for that day and we got to meet Cucina’s talented chef Federico while enjoying live classic guitar music.

The night was perfect in every way. From the calm ambiance to the artistic food to the great hospitality. Very memorable and special.

Italian chef Federico. He explained everything on the set menu and gave us the option to order from the regular menu as well. We went with the set menu.

I’m writing this at work and I don’t have the set menu with the names of the plates with me so I will just explain what each is.

The starters.. Above is cured steak that was marinated for a full month before being served with rocca leaves and onion.

Gnocchis (pronounced Nyoki) with pesto sauce. Was the chef’s recommendation. I only had to hear there was pesto involved  and made up my mind. So yummy.

Do you notice how many dishes I had? I just could.not.stop.eating!

Tiramissu was incredible. The favorite thing I had that night. Heavenly creamy! THE BEST tiramissu in Kuwait, hands down.
