Chocolate and Design at Four Seasons Hotel Milano

platinum

Published

on

With the reopening of its seasonal Sunday Brunch, Four Seasons Hotel Milano will unveil the new décor of its Chocolate Room. This year, Pastry Chef Daniele Bonzi is paying tribute to Milan’s famous reputation for design, with the creation of an art exhibition.

No less than one ton (2,200 pounds) of the finest Valrhona chocolate was necessary to create this new decor featuring geometric shapes, pop-culture and tape art elements as well as three-dimensional installations. Among these, guests can enjoy an interactive sound wave wall filled with chocolate desserts and a reproduction of the famous Needle, Thread and Knot statue by celebrated artists Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen.

“Besides fashion, Milan has also positioned itself as an important cradle for contemporary art and design, and you can clearly feel these influences when seeing the numerous art exhibitions in town, or by simply walking around the city or visiting the annual Furniture Fair. This is what has inspired me to create this multi-sensorial art experience. Just as all the paints and materials used in art, chocolate is a fabulous matter to work with, providing endless ways of use, with various natural tones and textures,” explains Pastry Chef Bonzi.

Certainly one of the most loved Hotel’s highlights since its creation in 2007, this hand-decorated delicacy has successively taken the form of a Ratatouille-themed lounge, a chocolate factory and a tropical forest featuring jungle-inspired vegetation and exotic animals. The Chocolate Room can be visited during the traditional Sunday Brunch and booked for private events, chocolate tastings, breakfasts and afternoon breaks.

A must-go occasion for guests and locals alike, the Hotel’ Sunday Brunch provides a unique moment to indulge in traditional Italian dishes served buffet-style including typical recipes as Milanese-style risotto and cutlets, gourmet selections of cold cuts and cheeses, delicious salads and roasted meats. And with its children’s play area and babysitter service, it is also a perfect occasion to spend a relaxed meal with the entire family.

Located in a dramatically 15th century reborn convent, Four Seasons Hotel Milano offers the perfect destination to spend a family holiday. Thanks to its position in the city’s bustling Fashion District, the Hotel allows an easy access to Milan’s historical quarter of Brera and the iconic Duomo, while for those looking for a shopping escape in the world leading couture houses, the Hotel’s Spa is a serene after-shopping respite to be pampered in with exclusive signature treatments.

Hairy crab season is something that all real food-lovers, from diners to cooks and head chefs are waiting for all year around. There is nothing that quite matches the light, sweet tastes of hairy crab, and its ability to accompany a wide variety of different ingredients.

From braised bird’s nest soup with crab jus and egg white to baked avocado and crab cream, sautéed fresh crab with conpoy and eggs, and oven-baked crab cream puffs, this one-off menu is a truly fine way to enjoy the unique flavours of the hairy crab.
