Casa Mia has promoted Giuseppe Sparagna to the role of chef de cuisine at the Le Meridien Dubai Hotel & Conference Centre concept.
Sparagna will oversee the restaurant which has been a part of Dubai’s dining scene for more than 25 years, and he has already introduced a new menu.
“Casa Mia is renowned for its Italian specialities and by appointing chef Giuseppe to lead its kitchen, we are ensuring that our guests continue to experience the same sense of nostalgic comfort as they have over the last two decades. Having worked closely with chef Maurizio in the past, chef Giuseppe as chef de cuisine will continue the legacy of Casa Mia,” said Carlo Javakhia, complex EAM, Le Méridien Dubai Hotel & Conference Centre and Le Méridien Fairway.
The Italian chef has introduced healthy new dishes to the menu including salmon fillet served on a bed of steamed vegetables, grilled seasonal vegetables, spiced whole wheat spaghettoni with datterini tomatoes and goji berries.
Speaking on his appointment, Sparagna said: “Having the opportunity to contribute to Casa Mia’s legacy is a great honour and I am extremely fortunate to have the backing of a talented team to highlight Italy’s culture of gastronomy, so that our guests continue to experience the comforting flavours of the region’s specialities.”
