Armani's Milan Restaurant Introduces 'Meet the Chefs'a Star-Studded Culinary Event

Starting on November 16th Milan's elegant Armani Ristorante will host the series of events Meet the Chefs. The restaurant known for its refined ambiance, natural colors, sharp lines and a splendid view of the city, will be the location for four unique evenings spotlighting some of the world's top chefs.

Four different chefs will be the stars of Executive Chef Filippo Gozzoli's kitchen at the Armani Ristorante. The idea is to create opportunities to highlight moments that focus on a meeting of creativity and experimentation while bringing together some of the culinary world's best talent.

Meet the Chefs will begin on November 16th with Paco Perez, owner of Ristorante Miramar di Llancà which has earned two Michelin stars. Perez is well-known as one of the Iberian Peninsula's most avant-guard chefs for his contemporary and innovative cooking style.

Throughout the evening his creativity will make its way through courses which bring out the flavors of the garden – with dishes made with artichokes, carrots and minestrone and then moving on to asparagus, almonds and olives. The culinary flair of Paco Perez is sure to shine with his signature calamari pirata and with his seabass served with sea cucumber in fricandò.

The evening's menu will open and close with two creations by Chef Gozzoli – a starter of soft baccalà served with a balsamic vinegar reduction and oyster chips, then ending with a dessert made with raspberry cream, caviar and marshmallows.
