HONG KONG -Tosca di Angelo at The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong proudly celebrates the unbound talents of amazing female chefs from Italy with “Gems & Pearl – An Italian Culinary Journey” (2019-2020 Edition), curated by acclaimed food personalities Andrea Petrini and Florent Bonnefoy. Over the next 12 months, Chef Angelo Aglianó, Director of Tosca di Angelo, is inviting five prominent chefs from Italy to work with him to craft unique Italian dishes for guests to relish and provide the opportunity for Hong Kong gourmets to meet these high-caliber international talents and savor their cuisines first hand.
For the first time, the five ambassadors, or “Gems”, are introduced to the Pearl of the Orient – Hong Kong – to work with the Tosca di Angelo team to create exclusive, one-off dishes melding the talents and unique styles of each chef with Chef Angelo’s. The Festival takes you from the inner Tuscan countryside to the Italian-Slovenian border; from the family rituals of Emilia-Romagna to Milan, center stage of elegance and design; and up to Salina Island, one of the best-kept gastronomic secrets in the Mediterranean. This all-exclusive, all-women line-up is ready to impress.
This culinary journey begins with the legendary Valeria Piccini from Caino restaurant in Montemerano, recipient of two Michelin stars for more than 20 years. Coming all the way from her native Tuscan hometown to Hong Kong for the very first time, Chef Valeria will be showcasing her earthbound, sensual Tuscan cuisine of pasta, mushrooms and the most delicate juicy meats with Angelo’s sunny, ultramarine cuisine in a seven-course menu 21st and 22nd November 2019.
Valeria Piccini will serve up Lunch and Dinner at Tosca di Angelo, Level 102, The Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong from 21st to 22nd November 2019, as part of Gems & Pearl – An Italian Culinary Journey. For more information, visit their website here
