Today, a new foodie friend joins us and he’s the guy behind the World Gourmet Summit, Mr Peter Knipp! More than 3 decades ago, he came to Singapore to work as a professional Chef at a hotel before breaking out to start his own Food & Beverage Consultancy and 20 years ago, World Gourmet Summit was born! As a man whose carer has been built around and through food and drink, you can trust Peter to have some great makan places to share.

This week, Peter recommends a wonderful Italian restaurant whose chef hails from Sicily and is dedicated to presenting diners with the freshest, tastiest seafood prepared according to his Southern Italian roots. Chef Lino Sauro’s contemporary Italian and Mediterranean cuisine at Gattopardo Ristorante di Mare on Tras Street will certainly excite your palate, because whilst he remains true-blue to his Sicilian roots, he gives his food a little Asian touch after spending so many years here in Singapore.
When Peter dines at Gattopardo, he forgoes ordering from the menu and leaves it up to Chef Lino to surprise him with between 5 to 7 courses of sublime small plates. From his sea urchin to hamachi to raw marinated langoustin, his focus is on giving diners a gastronomic journey of the palate through the freshest seafood. Let the Maitre D’ help you pair your meal with the right Prosecco or wines and you’ll have a beautiful experience at Gattopardo! This is one Italian restaurant that stands out from the many others in Singapore and Peter cannot recommend it enough.
