Returning to Bali after triumphal visits in 2007 and 2010, Chef Marcello Fabbri is back for a limited two-night engagement in February 2011. Fabbri will work his culinary magic at the St. Regis Bali Resort on February 12-13, 2011, and the The Laguna Luxury Collection Resort and Spa on February 20-21, 2011.
Marcello Fabbri first gained experience working in the kitchen of his Auntís hotel in Rimini at the age of 9 and, by the time he turned 13, the young Italian was committed to make a career of his passion for cooking. Since, Marcello has worked under world class chefs such as Gino Angelini, widely accepted as the best Italian chef in Los Angeles; Gualtiero Marchesi in Sardinia and Mario Gamba in Munich.
Marcello has become a fixture at Weimarís historic Hotel Elephant since 1993 in the capacity of head chef at the Anna Amalia Restaurant, establishing the restaurant as the top gourmet restaurant in the eastern part of the German Federation.
A steadfast commitment to excellence has once again led the restaurant to win recognition in the Michelin Guide in November 2010. Anna Amalia holds the distinction of being the only restaurant to have earned and held a Michelin Star for eight consecutive years.
Among those who have dined on Marcelloís creations include the German Chancellor Schroder, Russian Federation President Putin and singer Jennifer Lopez.
