Pūlehu, an Italian Grill at the Westin Kāʻanapali Ocean Resort Villas announces a new dessert menu featuring a fresh take on classics with culinary enhancements made by recently appointed chef de cuisine Alvin Savella. The new dessert menu is available beginning Thursday, Aug. 6, 2015.
“Pūlehu is known for offering classic Italian fare with a twist,” said Chef Savella said in a press release announcement. “I wanted to bring this concept to our dessert menu by re-imagining some traditional Italian dishes and adding a taste of local flavor.”
The new dessert menu features three specialties – budino, textures of tiramisu and zeppole – and three favorites – sorbet, gelato and affogato.
- The budino includes vanilla mousse with salted caramel and Oreo cookie crumble.
- Textures of tiramisu, a deconstruction of the classic Italian dish, features hazelnut chocolate cake, lady fingers, hazelnut crumble and mascarpone coffee cream.
- The zeppole is sugar fried dough with Zia Maria marshmallow gelato and macerated Kula strawberries.
