The Amare Residency at Sophia's Restaurant 

From the beautiful coast of Agrigento in southwest Sicily, acclaimed Chef Fulvio Pierangelini brings Amare, the signature restaurant of Verdura Resort to The Charles Hotel. Discover the rich flavours of the Mediterranean in the heart of Munich during his three-week residency at Sophia’s Restaurant.

THE CONCEPT

Feel the warmth of Sicily as our sun-filled dining room enjoys an Italian makeover. From Friday 20th January until Saturday 11th February, 2023, experience the authentic taste of the Mediterranean when Amare, the seaside Sicilian restaurant at Verdura Resort, arrives at Sophia’s Restaurant.

Created by Chef Fulvio Pierangelini, the menu showcases local Italian specialities such as ‘crudo’ – thinly sliced fish served with olive oil, citrus fruits and salt. Renowned for elevating simple ingredients to new heights, our Director of Food at Rocco Forte Hotels presents Italian classics and local specialities from Verdura Resort’s Sicilian menu.

Sample rich carbonara, veal cheek cooked in red wine and lamb delicately scented with fresh herbs. Finish with cannoli with pistachio ice cream for a truly Italian experience. Fulvio’s menu is perfectly paired to complement the Italian wines introduced by the producers themselves and selected by our sommelier.

ABOUT FULVIO PIERANGELINI

Renowned Italian chef Fulvio Pierangelini brings his love of simple, organic ingredients to The Charles Hotel in Munich, Germany. His special menu is inspired by the ancient olive groves and lemon trees lining Verdura Resort on the Sicilian coast. Across our restaurants, he imbues each with a distinctive local flavour.

“Simplicity is the point of arrival. This has been at the heart of what I do for over 40 years”. According to Chef Fulvio, good cooking is a series of small gestures, never too fussy or overcomplicated, which is why the future of his cuisine continues his life’s work,  focusing on exceptional raw ingredients combined with excellent technical research. Sustainability is also fundamental and has always been there in his cooking.

The intention of both Chef Fulvio and Rocco Forte Hotels is to offer an all-encompassing experience that makes the guest feel at home, in every room of the hotel, consolidating the reputation of Rocco Forte Hotels’ cuisine around the world. Food must instil a strong sense of identity in the story of each single address in the collection, promoting community ​​and the search for soulful experiences.
