Giancarlo Russo Resident Chef at Bellavita Warsaw 2018

We are proud to announce that Giancarlo Russo, chef and ambassador of Italian cuisine in Poland, will be Resident Chef at Bellavita Warsaw 2018 (10 – 12 April, WorldFood Warsaw 2018). In Poland for over 20 years, Giancarlo Russo is one of the most renowned figures in the Polish-Italian culinary landscape; he is also a famous TV chef and spokesperson for important brands such as Lidl and Zanetti.

Since 2001 Russo has organised the Arte Culinaria Italiana competition, a culinary contest where the best Polish chefs challenge each other on the art of Italian cuisine. The competition will take place from 9 to 11 March 2018 at the Blue Diamond Hotel Active SPA di Trzebownisko close Rzeszów.

The contest is sponsored by Barilla and this year it will be chaired by Bellavita Warsaw, the leading event for the export of Italian food and beverage in the world. The top three chefs will have the opportunity to lead a masterclass each on the stage of the Bellavita Food Academy, using only the products showcased at the event. The three chefs will need to use their imagination as they select their ingredients from the exhibitors present at the show and create unique dishes in front of thousands of visitors.

Chef Giancarlo Russo and his team are currently looking for the best food and beverage to present at the competition. The selected products will be used during the final stages of the event in front of thousands of food and beverage professionals.
