Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa Presents Michelin-Starred Chef Igor Macchia

Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa Presents Michelin-Starred Chef Igor Macchia

From 21 to 23 April, Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa will welcome Michelin-starred chef; Igor Macchia, to serve an exclusive Michelin dining experience at the resort’s Italian fine-dining restaurant, Capri Court. Igor Macchia’s passion for food and creative signature cuisine started many years ago, when he was still working and building up his own personal experience in many restaurants all over Italy and Europe. 

Among the prestigious restaurants Igor worked for, La Credenza has always been his second home. After many years spent experimenting and creating his personal style, both as a chef and pastry chef, he finally started a co-ownership of the restaurant in 2005 and was awarded with One Michelin Star the following year. Chef Macchia is always eager to experiment, research and rediscover; what he loves the most is the wind of passion and historical food culture that will guide him towards his next delicious destination. 

Diners are invited to join Chef Igor’s extraordinary culinary journey in Capri Court – the resort’s contemporary stylish Italian restaurant located in Al Bandar hotel – from the 20 – 23  April where his sumptuous signature a la carte menu will be featured, including dishes such as pumpkin risotto, beef tartar and grapefruit gelatine. 

Celebrating the first-class Michelin dining experience, Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa offers Omanis and the residents of Oman a luxurious opportunity to stay and enjoy Chef Igor’s signature delights for two people, starting from OMR 210 per room per night inclusive of buffet breakfast and dinner at Capri Court.
