Gusto Italiano – Join me at Flavours of Italy Culinary Masterclass!
Italian gastronomy has been gaining popularity in Singapore as diners move from the traditional pastas and pizzas to other different Italian cuisines in the diverse regions of Italy. Recognising the widespread influence of Italian cuisine in Singapore, the inaugural Gusto Italiano will celebrate and showcase the food, culinary talents and produce of Italy in new and exciting ways.
The festivities will feature outstanding local culinary stars and bring together renowned Italian restaurants and F&B establishments from across the island. As part of the exciting line up of Gusto Italiano, there will be “Flavours of Italy Culinary Workshops” offering the ideal opportunity to learn from eight of Singapore’s leading Italian chefs.
Fans of OTTO Ristorante will definitely be familiar with the dishes created by Chef Michele Pavanello. He is a widely acclaimed Italian specialty chef who has won awards and fans for his dedication to serving good Italian food. I have been to the restaurant once for lunch and was greeted by the humorous Chef Michele. Having worked in many places around the world, Chef Michele brings to OTTO years of varied experience, a fresh perspective and exciting new dishes. These include a crispy suckling pig dish, Hokkaido scallop carpaccio and five new desserts.
If you are a fan of OTTO or Chef Michele, you will properly be interested in what I am going to share today. Thanks to the organisers for Gusto Italiano, I am giving away two FREE pairs of culinary workshop passes to TWO LUCKY READERS. Each pair is worth $50++ , you can pick up some cooking tips from Chef Michele and I will be there too!
