WHEN: Saturday 28th May, 3pm- 6pm
WHERE: Top Chef Cooking Studio, Villa 196, Jumeirah Beach Road
EVENT: Mama, Let’s Cook!
(1 June 2016) Il Gufo – leading luxury Italian childrenswear brand – brought Dubai’s most stylish mammas and bambinos together for a charming afternoon of homemade Italian cooking in celebration of its Spring Summer 2016 Collection.
Buon appetito a tutti!
The children were sent a surprise package in the post in advance concealing an apron and cooking utensils along with a message requesting them to bring these keepsakes on the day. Guests met at the culinary school Top Chef Cooking Studio – a cosy villa nestled in Jumeirah – for an at home Italian cooking experience.
Joined in the kitchen by Il Gufo’s foundress Mrs. Giovanna Miletti, also known to many as ‘Mama Miletti’, mini master chefs whipped up some tasty treats from the brand’s very own cookbook ‘Mama, Let’s Cook!’ aided by expert in-house Chef Cristina Mennah. The dishes included Saltimbocca Roman Style and Tiramisu with Candy-Coated Chocolate Drops as well as fresh Auntie Chiara’s Marmalade to take home.
Once the food was ready everyone gathered at the dining table dressed with bunches of white flowers for an intimate meal together feasting upon their creations served on playful place mats. At the head sat Mama Miletti where she and the mothers shared heartfelt stories about their families and bambinos: the foundress’ daily inspiration and passion behind the brand. On departure, the little ones were gifted a cookbook signed and noted by Mama Miletti.
