Chef Paride Noviello

Born in the northern Italian port of Trieste, Chef Paride discovered his passion for cooking while helping out in the family restaurant from the tender age of 13.  He went on to study at the Istituto Alberghiero I.A.L., the School of Culinary Arts in Lignano Sabbiadoro, Italy, and after completing his bachelor’s degree in Culinary and Hotel Management the young chef decided to explore the world.

His culinary journey took him to Deira in Dubai where he was Junior Chef de Partie at the romantic restaurant, La Cucina.  Intrigued by Southeast Asian culture and cuisine, he moved on to Jakarta, Indonesia, working as a Sous Chef at Casa d’Oro. Prior to joining Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit he was Head Chef at La Gondola in the Kempinski Hotel Beijing, China. Highlights in Chef Paride’s career include the privilege of presenting his exquisite cuisine to members of the Thai royal family, and celebrities such as Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell.

On the very first day of the festival, was a special session with Mr.Noviello himself demonstrating his culinary style and describing the essence of Italian Cuisine. This was followed by a tasting session of wine & dinner. Needless to say, we were excited at just the thought of the entire family of cheese in one dinner. Although the event started at 7 PM, We reached only around 8 (blame the mad traffic in Bangalore). But Paride graciously took us through the starters and pointed out the subtle components that made all the difference in the dish. Absolutely down-to-earth and impossibly polite, he never hesitated to answer any of the myriad amount of questions the guests came up with (and there were quite a few to say the least!).

Below is the menu that we relished 😛 .
