Thanksgiving Week, Chapter 3.

Thanks to Chef Armstrong, Chef Barillaro & Okanagan Collage!

Also this year, from 6th – 13th October, in honour of this occurrence, Hotel Belvedere in Riccione is hosting two important people for the second time: Chef Jim Armstrong, Chef instructor of Okanagan College of Kelowna, and Chef Mike Barillaro, Culinary Arts teacher in the faculty of Food, Wine &Tourism.
They both come from Kelowna, situated in the Okanagan Valley: a region halfway between Vancouver and Alberta, a quiet area full of cottages nestled between valleys and lakes and, above all, an area of excellence for the production of fine wines. Here, in perfect coherence with the local territory, you can also find the best schools of food, wine and tourism.

The two chefs have not come alone. Also this year they are accompanied by two new students from the Culinary Arts course who, after beating their classmates in a gruelling cooking contest organised by the college, both won their place on this trip. A trip that will introduce them to the world of Italian cuisine and more specifically Romagnolo cuisine.

The programme of collaboration with Hotel Belvedere is very intense as it features not only in-house work experience, but also various appointments with local businesses. In addition to the already planned cooking lesson, coffee and breakfast lesson in hotel or a a pastry course in Patisserie Curioso Goloso in Riccione, the Canadian team has experimented also some typical excellences of our country, such as cold cuts making, truffle hunting in Umbria region and the Parmigiano Reggiano production in Maranello.

The most awaited event of this week will take place on Monday on the occasion of the Thanksgiving Dinner. The event will start off with a cocktail party on the Belvedere terrace and an aperitif that will be served - accompanied by music of our djs Marco and Martina. After the aperitif will follow a dinner served at the table at the Belvedere Restaurant cooked by our Team of Chef led by Giancarlo Bruno from the Belvedere, his team, and Chef Jim Armstrong and Chef Mike Barillaro and their two students from the Okanagan College in Canada.
