Michelin star Italian chef Giorgio Locatelli is taking a break from filming his latest TV series this month to show case his culinary talents during a guest appearance at Andiamo restaurant at the Grand Hyatt Dubai. From March 8 to 18, the celebrity chef and two colleagues, Mattia Camorani and Calogero Bono will take to the kitchens of Andiamo to provide Dubai with a taste of his award winning restaurant Locanda Locatelli, situated in Hyatt Regency London - The Churchill. “I have always had a great admiration of the food of Hyatt and the relationship is going very well. The restaurant, Locanda Locatelli, is a freestanding restaurant located in the hotel,” chef Giorgio says. Chef Giorgio began working with the chefs from the Grand Hyatt Dubai in January. The hotel’s kitchen team went to London for a week to visit chef Giorgio at Locanda Locatelli. “We are working on ingredients we can get in Dubai,” chef Giorgio explains. “My inspiration comes from Italy or from where I am. My signature dish is Rabbit as my grandmother used to make it, wrapped in Parma Ham and served with polenta. Escallops with saffron vinegar are another dish that is representative of what we do. The scallops come from Scotland, because they are larger, and we add Italian flavours. So definitely, I will get some ingredients from the Middle East.” Throughout the promotion there will be a three-course lunch menu and daily a la carte menus specially prepared by Giorgio for lunch and evening diners. The highlight of the promotion will be a four-course gourmet dinner to be hosted by Locatelli on March 9. The evening promises to be an event to remember. “The major point of Italian cooking is the conviviality. The world stops while we have lunch or dinner. This is being lost, as people eat on the go, and more people eat by themselves,” chef Giorgio professes.
