Two Michelin Star Chef Wolfgang Becker in Residence @ Mantra
From 12 -16 November 2011, Mantra Restaurant and Bar will showcase the ambrosial, award-winning cuisine of Guest Chef Wolfgang Becker, the two Michelin star of Becker’s Hotel & Restaurant in Trier, Germany.
Upon inheriting the family business in 1997, he embarked with his wife Christine on transforming both the restaurant and the culinary concept which resulted in Becker’s Restaurant being awarded two Michelin stars and 18 points in Gault Millau. His cooking style is renowned for its “clear, authentic and honest” tastes. “I only put things on the plate that make sense, says the 43-year-old Becker. “My plates are supposed to speak for themselves.”
Dining at Becker’s is an eight-course extravaganza with such modern creations as glazed sweetbread with orange, ricotta and roasted almonds or mieral dove with olives, spices and aubergine. Resident sommelier (and Becker’s wife) Christine serves the appropriate wines, often from the couple’s own winery. Within the estate, there is also second restaurant, Weinhaus which offers fine rural cuisine such as game with chanterelles and bread dumplings.
Well accustomed to presenting his gourmet creations against the backdrop of his distinctively designed restaurants, Becker will undoubtedly find the renowned Mantra Restaurant and Bar, with its seductive palette of red and black and vibrant, interactive dining spaces, an equally inspiring culinary stage.
Showcasing such signature dishes as the finest slices of beef tenderloin and tatare red beet, smoked eel and sour cream; turbot with a crust of parmesan cheese and duo of ratatouille; braised cheek and pink sirloin of lamb and olive jus, artichokes and creamy polenta or to finish, dessert from plums and white chocolate.
