Italian Chef Daniele Bettini Introduces New Set Lunch Menus at il cielo, Dusit Thani Bangkok

12.09.2012

 

New Italian Chef Daniele Bettini at il cielo

 

Daniele Bettini is only recently arrived as Italian Chef at il cielo Italian Restaurant, but he has quickly stamped his own mark on a set of revamped menus.  Lunchtime diners can expect to be greeted by a brand new menu every business day, from Monday to Friday.  The idea is that patrons will never tire of the surroundings, with dishes created and re-arranged on a daily basis.


Hailing from Venice, Daniele has come to Bangkok after tours of duty in Singapore, Madrid and Barcelona.  He likes to implement new ideas by introducing guests to the different tastes of Italy.  "Italian cooking is not just about tomatoes and basil", he says, "I like to utilise dishes from every region of the country, using fresh ingredients made by myself and my team.  Everything served has been made by hand, from the pasta to the freshly baked bread."


The restaurant has its very own bakery which operates 24 hours a day to produce a delicious range of bread, and a wood fired pizza oven that turns mundane dough bases into very reasonably priced gourmet pizzas.
