Travel to Italy with North Italian Food Festival


Alto Vino is one of my best places in Bangalore to enjoy the taste of Italy. The festival is also coming alive by blending delectable Italian cuisine with finely crafted wines, under the expertise of sommeliers, Aditya Lamba and Viraj Sawant.

Marriott Whitefield’s specialty Italian restaurant, Alto Vino, is organising a unique North Italian Food Festival from February 27, 2017, to March 09, 2017. Chef Marou, who hails from the North region of Italy, has specially crafted this festival to bring the culture and flavours of the territory to the people of Bengaluru. Alto Vina at the Bengaluru Marriott Hotel provides this same opportunity for the residents of the city!

Alto Vino’s North Italian Food Festival!

A lot of people today are acquainted with Italian cuisine and associate it with various varieties of pastas and pizzas. However, just like India. Italian cuisine also varies considerably from one region to another. To highlight the uniqueness and authenticity of North Italy, which places emphasis on herbs and garlic as key ingredients, and also to showcase how local habits and traditions have resulted in forming the distinctive flavours of this cuisine. Chef Marou has put his heart and soul into designing a food fest that is sure to tantalise the taste buds of diners.

Speaking about the festival, Chef Marou, Italian Chef at Alto Vino, Bengaluru Marriott Hotel, Whitefield, said, “The beautiful thing about Italian cuisine is the regional variety it possesses. North Italian cuisine incorporates plenty of butter, herbs and garlic in its preparations, while ‘veal’ is a widely popular dish amongst Northerners, especially in the spring. The diversity and richness of Italy’s culinary culture are reflected in India as well, and we wanted to celebrate that by offering a North Italian spread to our guests. We sincerely hope that our diners will enjoy this experience.”
