The Many Lives of Chef Andrea: Uno, Nessuno e Centomila

The Many Lives of Chef Andrea: Uno, Nessuno e Centomila

Cebu, Philippines, September 11, 2017 – Shangri-La’s Mactan Resort & Spa, Cebu launches a series of dining experiences highlighting the rich nuances of Italian lifestyles and cuisine as told through the lens of Chef Andrea Burzio’s personal history.

The one-of-a-kind series is called The Many Lives of Chef Andrea: Uno, Nessuno e Centomila, and is inspired by an eponymous novel about a protagonist who donned various personas throughout his life. It was written by the Nobel Prize-winning playwright Luigi Pirandello and was one of Chef Andrea’s favorite stories growing up.  

Designed with five chapters, the series begins with Capitolo I: La Mia Terra (My Land), an introduction to Piedmont, the fabled region at the foot of the Alps where Chef Andrea comes from. The four-course menu features traditional Piedmontese dishes, each paired with one of the vintages for which the northern region is justly famous.

The joyful spirit of the Piedmontese Carnevale (carnival) animates Capitolo II: La Mia Infanzia (My Childhood), a lighthearted romp through the chef’s youthful memories. An imaginative dinner encourages guests to participate and indulge in some playful creativity of their own.

Capitolo III: La Mia Famiglia (My Family) is a warm invitation to congenial dining in a casual setting, brightened by the chef’s own family anecdotes and heirloom recipes.

Capitolo IV: Citta e Stile (City and Style) focuses on the chef’s hometown of Turin, capital of Piedmont, and its genteel way of life. Once the regal seat of the Italian monarchy, Turin’s elegant café culture and sociable customs are distilled into an evening of leisurely sophistication.

The series ends in the present day with Capitolo V: Il Mio Percorso (My Journey). Fresh, contemporary French and Italian flavors fused with distinctive Asian influences represent Chef Andrea’s curious personality and his continuing travels through Europe and Asia.

Capitolo I: La Mia Terra will be on Saturday, November 4, 7:00 PM at the Ocean Wing poolside. Dinner rate is at PHP5,000++ per person.
