There’s nothing quite like summer in Italy. But whether you’re soaking up history and culture whilst sightseeing or enjoying the sparkling azure waters of the coast or living the country life surrounded by vineyards and lush, breathtaking scenery, food is what makes it truly memorable.
Inspired by his country and childhood memories, Carluccio’s executive chef Roberto Senese has launched Italian Summers, a lively menu crafted with authentic, fresh ingredients and love.
In his own words, Italian Summers celebrates the food culture of Italy and brings some of that La Dolce Vita to your table this summer.
Carluccio’s Gazpacho soup, made with plump tomatoes and garnished with tabasco, feta cheese and oregano, is a perfect start to a meal that is designed to be light on the stomach but heavy on flavour. If greens are your thing, the Fregalo salad, with citrus fruits, rocket and mint leaves, feta cheese, cherry tomatoes and drizzled with a homemade lemon dressing packs a zesty punch.
Dining with a friend? How about sharing some of the delightful appetizers on the new menu, including Chef Sense’s take on traditional favourites like Bruschetta and Mozzarella Roll?
The fresh fish of the Tagliatelle Al Salmone, the delicate and aromatic bresaola stuffed in the Piadina flat bread and the Summer Pizza, served with artichoke, rocket, red onion, walnut, and carnival mixed tomatoes are just some of the inventive dishes that diners can look forward to trying this summer.
Cool off with a Passion Fruit Cooler or Strawberry Mojito, the mocktails concocted to complement the meal. And if you still have room for dessert, the Coconut Gelato and Passion Fruit Panna Cotta are must-tries.
Italian Summers will be available in Carluccio’s restaurants across the UAE (Dubai Mall, Arabian Ranches, Dubai Marina Mall, Springs Souq and Eastern Mangroves AUH) from now until 30th September.
