A Culinary Journey to the Heart of the Mediterranean
Travel around the epicentre of the Roman empire, and experience a true Italian feast that will give a feel as if walking down the cobblestones to the small restaurant by the corner, or through the breezy hills of Tuscany, as Marco Polo Ortigas Manila brings Italian staples to taste.
With guest chef and Italian native from Marco Polo Hongkong, Chef Andrea Delzanno, comes a fusion of centuries-old traditions of the Italian cuisine with an innovative twist. Just like how art is produced in Rome, Chef Andrea prepares his dishes with a full attention to details, coming up with exquisite, satisfying, and purely delizioso dishes, carefully-crafted to a true Italian taste.
As he comes over to head the five-day-long Italian promotion with passion and culinary magic, discover a bold palette of flavours from a great variety of fine ingredients at Cucina, from June 7 to 18, for lunch and dinner. Feast on a selection of antipasti such as Parma ham and melon, and tomato and mozzarella caprese; roasted lamb rack with garlic and herbs, and stewed chicken cacciatora style, cooked the most Italian way. Fine risotto with mushrooms, and penne black truffle cream sauce will also be included in this sumptuous spread.
