POSTPONED | Taste of Abruzzo Dinner

Date & Time

  • Taste of Abruzzo - Dec. 5
    December 5, 2020
    6:00 pm - 9:30 pm



TASTE OF… is our popular series of themed dinners that take our guests on a gastronomical trip across Italy. Spanning from the northern regions all the way down to the Mediterranean islands, our guests will be able to taste not only regional specialties, but also creative dishes inspired by the rich Italian culinary tradition.

On this evening, we explore the foodie highlights of the Adriatic region of Abruzzo, called “the greenest region in Europe” because of the many protected natural parks that cover almost half of its territory. Due to the many mountain ranges in the region, much of Abruzzo has been isolated from international influence, and as a result, most of its cuisine stayed traditional and authentic.
