From Grand Canal to the Bosphorus
ISTANBULRenowned Italian chef Davide Bisetto is in Istanbul, bringing the tastes of Venice with his own unique twist. The chef of Oro Restaurant at the Belmond Cipriani Hotel in Venice, Bisetto is serving his special Cipriani menu in the Aqua Restaurant at the Four Seasons Bosphorus.
Bisetto was the first Italian chef to win two Michelin stars outside Italy, a challenging achievement for an Italian chef to conquer the stars in France. His career began at the Four Seasons Hotel in Milan with legendary chef Sergio Mei as his mentor. He then pursued his work abroad in England and Germany, then in France in Corsica and now finally he is back in Venice at Cipriani. Istanbul and Venice are sister cities which have been culturally and commercially connected throughout history and Aqua seems to be the right venue for this happy re-union; situated just on the shore of Bosphorus, one feels like being near the Venetian Lagoon or the Grand Canal.
The Cipriani menu has both traditional tastes, like the “Sepe al Nero,” exactly like his grandma would make, or the original “Treviso Tirami Sù,” and also modern interpretations of traditional dishes like the sublime “Tortelli di Anatra/Braised duck tortelli” or the unforgettable “Ossobuco.” Even if you missed the Carnevale di Venezia, do not miss this opportunity to have a tasty visit to Venice.
