Create your own classic pasta dish while little chefs get a hands-on pizza making lesson every Saturday at Italian Night
Dubai (UAE), 07 October 2012 – Head to the original heart of the city for an authentic Italian experience every Saturday at the Mövenpick Hotel Deira.
The hotel’s signature restaurant, Jigsaw, is the setting for Italian Night, where hotel executive chef, Salvatore Silvestrino, invites diners of all ages to roll up their sleeves and get creative.
Little chefs will have the opportunity to discover fledgling culinary talent at a hands-on pizza making session, with Chef Salvatore himself sharing his culinary secrets from the best handmade pizza dough to creating the perfect mix of toppings.
With an appetising selection of the freshest ingredients this side of Naples, grown-ups also get to join in the fun and customise their pasta with a choice of classic sauces and six varieties of homemade pasta.
“I wanted to share a little bit of my own Italian heritage, and passion for food, by inviting diners to get creative in our kitchen to create the ultimate palate pleasing dish of pasta or wood-fired pizza,” said Silvestrino.
A football-loving Neapolitan who was inspired by his mother’s love of food from a very young age, Silvestrino has worked in some of Italy’s best restaurants and at renowned international hotels from Asia and Australia to Arabia. Over the years he has cooked for Italian food lovers from every walk of life and culture including Michael Schumacher, Felipe Massa and the entire Ferrari team, and continues to delight Dubai residents with his culinary creativity.
