CAIRO - 21 April 2017:
Egypt Today takes you on culinary journey through the world—right here in the capital, as we ask three five-star chefs to share their favorite international dishes.
“Fajitas simply always let my appetite run wild, there is something about the mixture of flavors that get my taste buds going as they remind me of the warmth and authenticity back home,”
— Mexican chef Diego Casillas, Maria’s, Fairmont Heliopolis & Towers
“My favorite dish to make has to be the Beijing Duck. For China Red, I have carefully seasoned it in our traditional Chinese marinade then added a modern range of ingredients to fit Le Méridien’s philosophy on cuisine. The presentation also is very important to me. I cut the crispy duck into perfectly sliced thickness, and make the sauces and sides so that you taste the Beijing Duck dish as a whole. All of our products are being carefully selected based on their quality. The pancake bread is homemade daily in order to keep its freshness and traditional flavor."
— Chef Jiayin Zhu, China Red, Le Méridien Cairo Airport
“One of my favorite dishes is definitely the mushroom risotto, and it’s also the guests’ favorite! It can be modified according to dietary habits, is gluten free and is loved by everyone.”
— Italian Chef Giovanni Romagnoli, Pane Vino Restaurant & Terrace, Semiramis InterContinental Cairo
