1001 Nights of Italian Cuisine fully launched!

“1001 NIGHTS OF ITALIAN CUISINE”

AT THE RIXOS HOTEL ON THE PALM 

FOR THE GALA OPENING PARTY OF THE SUMMIT


The 6th Edition of the Italian Cuisine World Summit 2014, which crowns Dubai as the ultimate World Food Capital, kicked off with an extraordinary Gala Opening Party at The Rixos Hotel on the Palm on November 7, 2014.
Last year over 450 guests participated in the Party, the cream of Dubai F&B industry, distinguished media, VIPs and discerning food lovers who enjoy the best of what Made in Italy has to offer. A similar crowd had been invited this year to celebrate the kick off of the summit and welcome a stream of 30 other Michelin-Starred Italian chefs who will join forces with local Italian chefs in some of Dubai’s most exclusive Italian restaurants with a common aim: to showcase, celebrate, promote and educate about traditional cuisine and its quality ingredients.
