Four Seasons Orlando is hosting an Italian Festival. Executive Chef Fabrizio Schenardi, who hails from Turin, Italy, will welcome Italian guest chefs in partnership with the Italian Food Style Education (IFSE) Culinary School and the Region of Piedmont in Italy. The Resort first partnered with IFSE in October 2016. Ravello will be host to two incredible dinner experiences highlighting Italian cuisine.
Ravello will welcome Chef Giovanni Grasso of Ristorante La Credenza in San Maurizio Canavese (Turin), Italy. La Credenza was recognised in 2006 with one Michelin Star. Chef Grasso has devoted 25 years at the helm of La Credenza, mixing tradition with innovation, and serving cuisine that is never predictable.
In addition to Chef Grasso, Ravello will welcome Italy’s renowned pastry chef Wendy Elena Bosca. Chef Bosca was born into pastry success, as the daughter of Master Pastry Chef Sergio Bosca, who was awarded the Excellence Artigiana Piemontese Award, Chef Bosca grew up surrounded by sweets. In 2012, she opened her own cake shop in Turin, Italy and in 2013, recorded her own cake design show, airing on television in Italy. In 2014, she joined the IFSE as a culinary instructor, specialising in cake design.
In April 2015, Chef Schenardi was presented with the Paolo Bertani Award for his Italian culinary achievements by the Italian Academy of Cuisine and IFSE.
