Italian restaurant Sicilia appoints chef de cuisine
The Sicilia Italian restaurant in the Mövenpick Hotel Ibn Battuta Gate Dubai has appointed a new chef de cuisine, Raffaele Andreozzi.
The 43-year-old Italian national, who hails from the Genoa region of Italy, joins Mövenpick Hotel Ibn Battuta Gate Dubai following a two-year assignment at the Anantara Desert Island Resort on Sir Bani Yas, in Abu Dhabi.
Prior to his time at Anantara, Andreozzi started with Princess Cruise Lines as a demi chef de partie in 1998, based out of Los Angeles and rose through the ranks, making sous chef by 2006 and chef de cuisine in 2012.
The following year, he was promoted to executive sous chef for Sabatini’s Kitchen, Crown Grill Kitchen and the main Galley Kitchen.
During his career which spans 28 years, Andreozzi also has extensive experience of working for five-star restaurants in St. Moritz, Paris and Portofino.
He marked his arrival by creating two new menus – one aimed at busy executives who have limited time for a wholesome lunch, and a more extensive and relaxed dinner menu for families and couples enjoying an evening out.
