Rosewood Corniche to host Italian food fest
Jeddah, January 14, 2014
Jeddah’s renowned hotel Rosewood Corniche is set to host the Italian Food Festival, which will highlight Emilia Romania flavours.
The festival will run at the hotel’s Habsburg restaurant from January 15 to 30, said a statement.
It will feature chef Francesca Simoni, an Italian culinary expert from Bologna, who will oversee the operations at Habsburg kitchen during the festival days, in coordination with executive chef Maurizio.
“Words cannot express my excitement and pride of being the first female Italian Chef taking part in a leading festivity in Jeddah,” said Simoni.
“With a professional and skilled team such as Habsburg’s, I am sure this year’s edition will be another success to add to the festival’s history. We have prepared a diverse and rich menu for our guests,” added Simoni.
The guests of the festival can expect a variety of original Italian cuisine from Amelia Romagna including the authentic homemade pasta, fresh sea food Fritto Misto, as well as a spectacular live cooking station of the delicious Risotto sorts.
Hans-Peter Leitzke, managing director at Rosewood Corniche, said: “The idea behind the Italian Food Festival is to offer guests a unique and true Italian experience in the heart of the kingdom.
“We wanted to offer something new to our guests while remaining reliable to the Italian traditional gastronomy. The best way to do this is through introducing them to the Amelia Romagna flavours that chef Francesca excels.”
