20 Michelin-star chefs to cook at Night Of The Stars

The Penthouse at FIVE Palm Jumeirah hosts a live cooking event

Love Italian food? This is one event that will leave you proclaiming “Mamma Mia”.

Not one, not two but 20 Michelin-star Italian chefs will be descending on FIVE Palm Jumeirah next Wednesday (November 22) for a live cooking (and feasting) event at The Penthouse.

The aptly-titled “Night Of The Stars” is a unique dining and grape pairing experience with gastronomic demo stations from the talented chefs, who are each representing top restaurants from around the world.

Most importantly, guests will be able to indulge in a lip-smacking selection of Italian food, including pastas and risottos, to seafood, meats and desserts.

The event is part of the ninth annual edition of the Italian Cuisine World Summit, and the chefs involved include Umberto Bombana, master of the Michelin three-star Otto e Mezzo Bombana in Hong Kong, Massimiliano Mascia, the head chef of the two-star San Domenico in Imola and FIVE Palm Jumeirah’s own Italian genius, Chef Giuseppe Pezzella.

The event will be hosted by Donato de Santis, judge of Masterchef Argentina and owner of Cucina Paradiso restaurant in Buenos Aires, and entertainment will be provided by the Mark Zitti Band, playing the very best up-tempo swing and jazz.

“This one-night only event is a must-attend celebration for foodies across the city, bringing together extremely talented chefs representing their Michelin-star restaurants,” says Aloki Batra, CEO of FIVE Hospitality.

“These chefs, such as Vincenzo Candiano and his two-star Locanda Don Serafino, will cook live before guests and let guests sample their signature dishes. Our desire, as hoteliers, is to create a series of unique events to position FIVE Palm Jumeirah as the hottest experiential hotel in town.”
