15 June: the North Sea and the riches of the fjords
We often think of the seas to the north of the world as cold, silent and perhaps not very hospitable places. In reality, these waters are very rich in living things: they offer fishing of the highest quality causing the surrounding regions to flourish.
At the fist summer buffet event, the Chef will offer fish such as salmon, mackerel, herring, and fresh and dried cod. There will also be imperial crab and the fabulous Alaskan black cod , one of the most popular white fish in the world. There will be dishes from the land as well, such as ginger pork and Swedish meatballs with blueberries and yogurt.
29 June: Indian Ocean and the exotic treasures of the East
The most famous trade routes of antiquity crossed the Indian Ocean; they were much appreciated by Europeans travelling to the east, to trade silk, tea and spices. Upon these warm waters travelled many peoples with a variety of unmistakable culinary traditions.
The buffet on 29th June will be dedicated to Indian and Indonesian cuisine : curry chicken, lemon-scented rice, spit-roasted lamb, coconut octopus salad , accompanied by world-renowned dishes such as Indian amberjack, lobster, spiced tuna, and even seafood salad and roasted pork.
14 July: the Seine, history of France
The history of France and its capital Paris wind along the course of the river Seine, which harmoniously traverses them with magnificent beauty. On 14th July, the anniversary of the Taking of the Bastille, we celebrate the fête nationale of France with an exclusive theme party accompanied by a pyrotechnic show.
The protagonists of the evening will be traditional French dishes, which will accompany international cuisine in a surprising blend. You will have the opportunity to taste oysters, escargots, delicious quiches and fabulous desserts like Saint Honoré, macaroons and profiteroles.
27 July: from Adriatic to Tirreno, a journey through the flavours of Italy
The Italian culinary tradition is perhaps the most famous in the world. We want to pay homage with a journey from the North to the South, following the lines of the rivers and coasts that represent the history of the “Bel Paese.” In tasting the regional cuisine specialities , you will experience a wonderful triumph of colours and flavours.
In his presentation of buffet dishes, Chef Luigi Facciotti portrays the South of Italy with buffalo mozzarella and the best fish, such as the albacore, the grouper and the spatula fish. The Chef represents the centre of Italy with Tuscan game and the Roman artichoke; he represents Northern Italy with Piedmontese Fassona and the famous risottos. Regional specialties will also enrich an array desserts ranging from apple strudël to Neapolitan pastiera.
15 August: the Caribbean Sea and the triumph of summer
A tropical party from the Caribbean Sea and its splendid islands will arrive at the pool on 15th August (Ferragosto) . The sun, music and dancing will accompany a buffet that is full of the colours and exotic flavours of Central and South America and the sky will light up with the fireworks of an irresistible party.
The international buffet will be enriched with traditional dishes such as burritos, enchiladas, arroz with chicken and many other specialities accompanied by the inevitable guacamole sauce made by our Chef. Exotic and tropical specialities will colour the dessert buffet with a rainbow of tastes and flavours.
31 August: the Danube across Europe
The last leg of our journey will be a tribute to the River that flows through Europe, a river that was of great importance (as well as of magnificent beauty) during the Middle Ages. And so you will have the opportunity to relive the festive banquets which filled the castles of princes and kings with chatter and music.
The protagonists of the last buffet of the season will be sweets and focaccias with an ancient flavour, specialities based on game and poultry, and a wide selection of vegetables and first fruits of autumn.
In case of bad weather, all the buffets will be held in the beautiful dining room.
