Starting with Lombardia promotion from 11 January to 18 January 2016

DOHA, QATAR (December 2015) – Grand Hyatt Doha’s charming Italian poolside restaurant will take Doha residents on culinary journeys into specific regions of Italy with Rocca’s monthly regional promotions throughout 2016 kicking start with Lombardia promotion from 11 January to 18 January 2016.

The regional cuisine of Lombardia is heavily based upon ingredients like maizericebeefbutter, and lard. Despite being a form of Italian cuisine, Lombard food tends to have little in common with Central or Southern Italian dishes, in many cases lacking the presence of tomato and olive oil, being more meat-based and buttery.

Italian chef Marco Cherubini dug into his culinary repertoire and experience to introduce the different regional menus showcasing Italy’s vast and diverse cuisines.

Marco’s passion for cooking grew over the years and although he studied law, he enjoyed cooking for his family and friends so much he decided to pursue it as a career. In 1996, he joined “A Tavola Con Lo Chef” school to pursue his passion. The lawyer chef –or as his friends call him, started his culinary career as a commis de cuisine at the Italian famous restaurant, Ristorante Maccheroni and he managed to gain a huge reputation in Rome for almost 13 years until he decided to relocate to china in 2009 to join the award-wining restaurant, Ad Domus & Ad Don Antonio as a chef de cuisine. Marco’s charisma also encouraged a lot of Local TV channels in Italy to make him a culinary TV figure for almost 3 years.

“When I decided to study culinary arts, my family and friends encouraged me to take that step. They felt my passion for food,” said Chef Marco, Chef de Cuisine of Rocca. “Italian food is characterized by its simplicity however it’s also known for the richness of its flavours. And I will definitely try to showcase these characteristics and my 15 years of experience in every item we will offer at Rocca”.
