Celebrity Chef Luigi Pomata at Quattro Restaurant, Four Seasons Resort Marrakech
Luigi Pomata, one of the most renowned Italian chefs in the world, announces the launch of a pop-up menu at Quattro Restaurant Marrakech from March 8 to 11, 2023, set within the acclaimed Four Seasons Resort Marrakech.
Italian food lovers are in for a treat with this new menu offered for the first time in Morocco: Chef Luigi Pomata’s refined dining style, presenting a Sardinian expression of his signature creative Italian dishes within one of Marrakech’s most prestigious addresses.
Luigi Pomata represents the third generation of chefs in his family. The story started from far off places and times, with his grandfather Luigi, a farmer, who turned his passion, cooking, into a profession, and took over a historic restaurant in Carloforte, a small island rich in history, on the south-western coast of Sardinia. It continued with his father Nicolo, who transferred the secrets and wisdom to young Luigi, taking him with him in the family restaurant. It is a culture made up of flavours, fragrances, the rituals of tuna fishing, discipline, times and encounters, and travel. Carlofortinians come from afar; they are used to travelling, and Luigi, after graduating from the hotel management school, left the island and worked for important restaurants, in Italy and abroad in New York, London.
In 2003, he represented Italy in the prestigious Bocuse d’Or, won the world couscous competition and since 2000 participated in various television programs such as: La prova del Cuoco, La cucina del Gambero Rosso and Alice Channel.
Commenting on the significant pop-up event in Marrakech, Chef Luigi Pomata says, “I am considered the Bluefin Tuna Chef, in part it is true, this is the tradition of my land but, I am still a curious person who loves to experiment and I consider it essential to enhance the raw material by reinterpreting traditional dishes to bring them to the tables in an ever-present way of our days. Partnering with the iconic Four Seasons Resort Marrakech is an exciting project. Together with Executive chef Nicola Rossi, we’ve created a concept that will reflect the rich and creative nature of Italian cuisine.”
On the Menu
Quattro's pop-up menu will reflect Chef Luigi Pomata's creative philosophy that every great classic is forward-thinking. While the dishes will be rooted in Italian tradition and flavours, the chef will draw inspiration from local seasonal produce to create a truly unique and modern dining experience.
A spirit that will be perfectly represented in unique dishes such as: the Agnelo (lamb chops in herbs crusted bread, pumpkin chutney, truffle gravy), the Spiced Pineapple, the Parmiggiana Antipasti (eggplant parmiggiana with sea smoke), Antipasto Scampi, the Beermisu, Moroccan-style Focaccia, Primo Gnocchi, and Primo Riso. For the main course, guests can also look forward to the Secondo Tonno (tuna, foie grass, eggplant and beef jus.
The wine offering will be equally well considered with the help of Ferdinando Amalfitano, who will propose a true journey to the heart of the Italian vineyards. From Piedmont to the sunny lands of Naples, the menu will reveal confidential favourites as well as renowned grands crus.
Located within Four Seasons Resort Marrakech, in a chic and glamorous atmosphere, the Quattro restaurant proposes a menu combining the culinary heritage of Italy and the flavours of Morocco, with recipes that exist nowhere else. A perfect address for any occasion – from leisurely dinners with family to joyous dinners with friends, ultimately creating a dynamic dining experience that encapsulates Marrakech’s dolce vita and Four Seasons passion for hospitality. It’s an address that makes taste buds travel and make it the Italian table in Marrakech.
Do not miss an opportunity to dive into this Italian fairy tale – Luigi Pomata in Morocco – and become part of a special culinary experience.
