Borgata’s Executive Chef Tom Biglan took inquisitive Savor Borgata guests for a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to provide dinner service in Borgata’s professional kitchen. The goal? Show how Borgata’s outstanding culinary team executes a flawlessly-timed meal.
Of course, what fun is it just to watch food being made without tasting it? Chef Tom had that covered by providing a five-course tasting menu paired with wine. Guests started with Avocado and Crab Toast served with crumbled bacon and cucumbers. Then, they had the voice of a Roasted Asparagus Soup with poached lobster, Clams Casino, or Baked Pecorino with toasted semolina.
A salad course consisted of a voice between an Italian Market Salad with salami, prosciutto, grilled zucchini, and shared radishes, an Arugula Salad with smoked pears, or a classic Caesar Salad. For the main course, there was Breast of Pheasant with wild mushrooms, House-Smoked Pan Roasted Salmon with a black pepper and avocado cream, or Petite Filet Mignon with White Whisky Hollandaise. A sweet finish left guests with a taste of either a Warm Roasted Apple and Pear Cobbler, a Gingerbread Ice Cream Sandwich, or a Milk Chocolate-Lemon Curd Parfait.
