Milan, Italy

Four Seasons Hotel Milano and its Executive Chef Fabrizio Borraccino are bringing Sicily to Milan every weekend for the next two months.  A limited run of “Sicilian Lunches” will transport guests to magnificent Sicily though the cuisine of Massimo Mantarro, Executive Chef of San Domenico Palace, Taormina, A Four Seasons Hotel and its signature fine dining restaurant Principe Cerami.

The new “Sicilian Lunches” are the perfect way to enjoy a convivial weekend meal with friends and family.  The abundance of Sicily is the conduit for Chef Massimo Mantarro’s creativity. He artfully combines each ingredient, respecting flavours and seasonality to bring the quintessence of Sicily to the table. The vivid and glamorous world of Dolce&Gabbana lifestyle is the perfect canvass for Mantarro’s cuisine, adding a touch of brilliance to the Hotel’s Sala Teatro event space.

For the occasion, Dolce&Gabbana brings to the table one of the four themes of its Casa Collection: the iconic colours and graphics of the Sicilian Carretto characterize the porcelains, affirming the brand's devotion to Sicilian artisanship and beauty. The special Dolce&Gabbana Casa signature set-up dresses the city’s weekends in style.

The Sicilian Lunches will take place every Saturday and Sunday from October 1 until November 26, 2022 from 12:30 until 3:00 pm.
