Sponsored: Milan meets Dubai at this exclusive dinner at Armani/Ristorante Dubai
If there was ever a place to impress a loved one with a spectacular Italian dinner, it’s at Armani/Ristorante Dubai on November 8. Mark your calendar as acclaimed Executive Chef Francesco Mascheroni, of sister property Armani Hotel Milano, is coming to town for an exclusive four-hands dinner that celebrates both hotels’ 10th anniversary together.
Co-hosted by Armani/Ristorante’s Chef de Cuisine Giovanni Papi, the evening will showcase both chefs’ culinary pedigree, with each invited to put his unique stamp on a collaborative six-course menu. A former chef for the Italian navy turned five-star culinary maestro, Varese-born Chef Francesco credits his mother and grandmother’s passion for cooking as the preliminary point for his journey in the kitchen. High-profile restaurant positions in Switzerland, and his native Italy, eventually brought him to Armani Hotel Milano.
Fellow Italian, Chef Giovanni Papi, has been cooking professionally for almost two decades. Exquisite flavour combinations presented with contemporary flair are a true portrayal of his culinary style. Chef Giovanni is also one of the invited chefs participating at Expo 2020 Dubai’s Chef’s Table showcase series of events.
The exclusive one-night-only menu commences with a Dubai-meets-Milan paired duo of amuse bouche, followed by signature creations including a Parmesan fondue-filled fried beignet with beluga caviar and zucchini puree, Scallop tartare with white truffle, Salad of pigeon breast with seared foie gras, an intriguing twist on a traditional Lasagna, Turbot in a caper sauce with porcini, and Slow-cooked Piemontese beef. Dessert will be none other than the iconic Armani/Ristorante Sfera (Caramel crème brulée with vanilla foam, cinnamon crumble and apple sorbet) – a must to conclude your dining experience.
The delectable menu, complete with contemporary Italian tunes performed throughout the evening, will transport you back to the vibrant buzz of Milano.
The dinner will be held on November 8. AED649 per person, and an additional AED449 with grape pairing. For more information or reservations, please visit armanihoteldubai.com, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call +9714 888 3666.
