FOCUSING ON SEASONALITY, TRADITION AND WELLNESS

Florence, November 12, 2019
- Hotel Savoy, a Rocco Forte Hotel, is pleased to introduce a new weekly culinary event: Irene Bistro's Sunday Brunch, an original brunch concept that has a particular emphasis on the world of wellness with signature menus created by Director of Food at Rocco Forte Hotels, Fulvio Pierangelini and Head Chef Giovanni Cosmai.
Beginning on November 17 and featuring key players such as authentic flavours of the land and sea, the delicious corner of "Little Tuscany" and live cooking with the Chefs. Simplicity and tradition, cornerstones of Irene’s cuisine, are thoughtfully paired with the highest quality and seasonal super foods, “brought to us by our wonderful local producers, paying special attention to the selection of locally sourced and traditional produce”, articulates Fulvio Pierangelini.

The menu will change from time to time in order to offer the most fresh and taste varying dishes. Starting with a selection of appetizers - from cheeses produced by local cheese monger De 'Magi Cheeses and salamis from Casentino, to shellfish salads with potatoes, avocado and coriander - raw selections - with oysters, salmon and yellowtail - pasta selections - from the lasaghetta to the Chianina ragù to the classic “sciuè sciuè” spaghetti by Fulvio Pierangelini - and a choice of main courses, such as our catch of the day with a large variety of seasonal vegetables from the Tuscan countryside. Our dishes are all accompanied by the perfect wines hand selected by our sommelier.

You will find our bartenders ready to welcome you at Irene’s Bar with fresh vegetable juices and other delicious healthy drinks, while the dessert section will feature our Chef’s newest recipes of fruit delicacies containing organic stone-ground flour. Finally, we will present live music entertainment and an area dedicated to children in the Salotto Lounge, babysitting service and the possibility to watch live Series A football matches.
 
During the week, Hotel Savoy invites you to savour its heavenly flavours with a special treat before dinner. Every Thursday we host our very special "Fish & Spritz" aperitivo with a choice of hand crafted Florentine accented - Classic, Irene, Stravinsky and Zen - spritz served with delectable seafood tapas created by our Chef. While on Fridays enjoy our "Rosa, Rosae" aperitivo with a flute of Perrier Champagne Jouet Blason Rosè, also accompanied by a plate of delicious fish specialties.
