CAIRO, EGYPT–(Marketwire – December 17, 2012) – Throughout the month of December, the Fairmont Heliopolis & Towers luxury Cairo hotel is welcoming guests to indulge in the unique flavors and award-winning cuisine of Italian chef Federico Villoni. Creating one-of-a-kind truffle-infused dishes at the hotel’s Italian restaurant, Leonardo, Villoni will inspire you to see, touch, smell and taste every nuance in his dishes. From the way the earthiness of the truffles melds beautifully with the creaminess of taleggio cheese, to how they add richness to quail eggs, and make soups even more comforting and soothing — and yes, delicious — his “truffled” menu will tantalize your senses and delight your taste buds.
Just a few of the dishes on our Cairo restaurant’s menu this month include:
Pan Seared Sea Scallops with Carrot Cream, Soya Sprouts, Pepper Sauce and Shaved Truffle
Homemade Ravioli Stuffed with Sea Bass, Broccoli and Black Truffle
Homemade Taglioni with Taleggio Cheese, Quail Eggs and Black Truffle
Bonet and Truffle Stracciatella
The special truffles promotion runs from through January 31st 2013 only at Leonardo, the Fairmont Heliopolis & Towers Cairo hotel.
