ROME: The cultural oasis of AlUla will host the final event of the seventh Annual Week of Italian Cuisine in Saudi Arabia.
On Nov. 23, Sicilian Chef Pino Maggiore will prepare a menu inspired by the synergies between Italian and Saudi cuisine.
The menu “will give life to a unique culinary and cultural experience,” Italian Ambassador to Saudi Arabia Roberto Cantone told Arab News.
From Nov. 14-17, Cantone hosted in his Riyadh residence four gala dinners dedicated to the excellence of Italian cuisine.
Representatives of Saudi institutions and businesses, as well as expatriate communities, were able to taste typical Italian dishes interpreted in a modern and innovative way.
“Combining the values of tradition and innovation … is at the basis of the success of Italian cuisine worldwide,” Cantone said.
The AlUla event is organized by the Italian Embassy in Riyadh in cooperation with the Saudi Royal Commission for AlUla.
