Food is the cornerstone of Italian culture and the iconic Grand Hotel Tremezzo located on the shores of beautiful Lake Como in the Lombardy region of Northern Italy, offers guests the opportunity to experience a gastronomic treasure trove of signature dishes, inspirational flavours and local ingredients under the direction of ‘the founder of modern Italian cuisine’ Gualtiero Marchesi and their expert in-house chef, Osvaldo Presazzi.
Food in Lake Como is heavily influenced by the lake itself, as well as the mountains, hills and plains that surround it. Lombard dishes function on delectable yet simple flavor combinations with ‘lavarello’ (fish caught fresh from the lake) and ingredients such as maize, rice, beef and butter remaining central to traditional fare.
Through its five upscale restaurants and bars including La Terrazza, T Beach and L’Escale, Grand Hotel Tremezzo invites its discerning guests to embark on a gastronomic journey through the region, being seduced by seasonal menus that are light and full of character – a tribute to the flavours of this spectacular part of Italy.
Guiltiero Marchesi is the inspiration behind the hotel’s culinary offerings and the chef who made the biggest contribution to the evolution and worldwide popularity of Italian cuisine creating historic dishes, many of which are on the menu at Grand Hotel Tremezzo itself, such as the legendary ‘Riso, oro e zafferano’. Experience this exquisite saffron and gold leaf risotto at La Terrazza restaurant which serves up the finest and tastiest examples of Italian cooking reinterpreted by both Marchesi and Executive Chef Presazzi, and best enjoyed al fresco on the terrace which boasts the best view in the whole of Lake Como.
Under the twinkling lights of Bellagio and the rose tinted peaks of the Grigne mountains, indulge in typical Lombardian dishes such as ‘Ossobuco’(braised veal shank) paired with sommelier chosen regional wines (red Valtellina) or feast on the Marchesi Degustation Menu for a seven-course treat.
For a more casual take on culinary excellence, the new T Beach, located just moments from the magnificent floating swimming pool, sees passionate chefs educate guests on superior cuisine by preparing each dish right in front of them before finally savouring fresh fish, meat, vegetable and cheese grills which exude the most genuine of local flavors.
