On October 16th, InterContinental Nha Trang welcomed the youngest
Michelin-starred chef from Italy, Matteo Metulio, to serve an exclusive Michelin
star dining experience in Nha Trang at the hotel’s international restaurant, The
Cookbook Café. Featuring such delicate signature dishes
that awarded him a Michelin star, Nha Trang epicures were invited to join Chef
Mateo for an exceptional culinary journey of taste, texture and surprising interpretation.
The event marked the first Michelin star visit to this beautiful coastal city
of Vietnam.

It was an extraordinary opportunity to indulge in Chef Matteo’s distinctive delectable
dishes within his exquisite menu which includes Quail and Green Apple with Goat
Cheese Ffoam, Salmon and Scampis with Ginger and Beetroot, Venison Tenderloin and
Pistachio Cream, Risotto allaParmigiana with Pork Kidney and Coffee; Lamb and
Potato Puree, and Chef’s Special Tarte-tin.

Matteo Metullio is a rising
star of Northern Italian cuisine and the youngest Michelin chef from Italy at
the age of 25. Born in the city of Trieste, Mateo has had until now a
flourishing career since 19 years old. He built a strong four-year foundation
as a member of the world’s famous 2-star Michelin Chef Norbert Niederkofler’s
brigade at St. Hubertus Restaurant. Then, Matteo moved to La Siriola Restaurant
as Sous Chef of Fabio Cucchelli and succeeded the prestigious executive chef in
2013. It was a major challenge to this young chef in proving himself to
Michelin star and running the success of the restaurant. Eventually, he won his
star and became the youngest of Michelin leagues in Italy.
