Chef Damiano Nigro (Michelin 1 Star, Villa d’Amelia) brings Progressive Italian from the Hills of Barolo to the Kitchen at TRB Bites
When foodies look at a Michelin map, it’s clear that there is a concentration of Michelin restaurants in one little area in Italy’s northwest region called Piedmont. From Langhe to Barolo to Alba, this area is a mountainous region famous for its white truffles (considered the best in the world), fondue, Barolo wines and thin breadsticks called grissini. Piedmont is also reputed to be Italy’s most culinarily progressive region, which makes sense that they are snatching up so many Michelin stars.
Beijing now has the privilege to have a taste of Piedmont as TRB Bites welcomes their first guest chef of 2017, who also happens to be the first Italian chef that they have ever hosted. Chef Damiano Nigro is introduced as an Italian culinary force with 1 Michelin star as the executive chef of the 4 star Relais “Villa d’Amelia” in Piedmont, where he still works today. While Chef Damiano has traveled all over the world and cooked in Germany, France, England, Spain, New York and Taiwan, he’s taken the inspiration he’s received in each place and applied it to his intense focus in the kitchen.
A recommendation to TRB by a foodie who was previous based in Beijing, Chef Damiano is in Beijing for just a week, presenting a lunch menu (RMB 480 per person) and a dinner menu (RMB 680 per person) between Wednesday, March 8th-Sunday, March 12th.
