Experience a decadent dinner with renowned Italian chefs in celebration of the famed white Alba truffle
October 20, 2022,
This December, Executive Chef Fabrizio Schenardi, who hails from Torino, Italy, will bring Italian guest chefs in partnership with the Region of Piemonte, Visit Piemonte and Italian Food Style Education (IFSE) Culinary School to prepare an Italian culinary extravaganza in Orlando, Florida. Ravello at Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort will host special dinner experiences highlighting the Piemonte region of Italy.
Attending the special dinners will be talented Italian chefs of Michelin-starred restaurants and educators from IFSE Culinary School, including Raffaelle Trovato, founder and director of IFSE, and his associate Ugo Mura. In April 2015, Schenardi was presented with the Paolo Bertani Award for his Italian culinary achievements by the Italian Academy of Cuisine and IFSE. During regular trips to Italy, including this past summer, Schenardi coordinated the details of this special partnership with Trovato.
“I’m very excited to bring the IFSE professionals back to Ravello and have Resort guests and local residents take part in a truly authentic Italian experience,” says Schenardi. “Raffaele Trovato is one of the most highly regarded instructors and mentors, and I am looking forward to having him return to Four Seasons Resort Orlando.”
In addition to welcoming special guests Trovato and Mura, Ravello at Four Seasons Resort Orlando will welcome Giovanni Grasso, chef/owner of the renowned Credenza Group, featuring the Michelin star-rated restaurant La Credenza in San Maurizio, Italy, near Torino. Chef Grasso has been cooking since age 12, working at several restaurants before opening La Credenza together with his friend and fellow Chef Igor Macchia. Grasso is known for a cooking style that is a blend of traditional with innovative twists reflecting his own personal cooking style. Grasso has also served as a LavAzza coffee brand ambassador since 2013.
Ravello is the Resort’s modern Italian restaurant, serving pizza, bread and pasta made entirely from scratch, and numerous Italian specialties, featuring many ingredients imported from Italy. Guests love Schenardi’s housemade limoncello and charcuterie, and the delectable desserts made by twice-James Beard Award nominated Outstanding Pastry Chef semifinalist Rabii Saber, Executive Pastry Chef. This June, Ravello received a recommendation in the first Michelin Guide for Miami, Orlando and Tampa, while sister restaurant Capa on the Resort’s 17th floor received one Michelin star.
