Chef Davide Scabin, from the Combal.Zero restaurant in Rivoli (near Turin), gives his personal homage to Italian water by creating his dessert ‘Beijing Cold Fusion in San Pellegrino Liquid Diamonds’, that uses S.Pellegrino sparkling water as ingredient, and makes the guests at the S.Pellegrino sparkles with Bulgari China gala experience the surprise S.Pellegrino can bring on a dining table.
During the Chinese launch of the S.Pellegrino special edition bottle - that "features" a Bulgari jewel on the label, celebrating the 125th anniversary of the jewelry Maison and the partnership with S.Pellegrino in China Mainland, the Italian chef Scabin prepared a unique dessert made with twenty-six different iced ingredients, melted in the liquid diamonds of San Pellegrino sparkling water to create a surprising sweet soup, colourful and fruity.
Strictly made in Italy, the food is served alongside wine by the Bellavista label, a high-end product coming from the Franciacorta region which suggests a strong pairing and tasting path, with the Bellavista Cuvée brut: here you'll see a video meeting the taste keepers behind the famous Italian spumante label.
To celebrate the anniversary, the Italian jewelry Maison will hold a Retrospective Exhibition in Shanghai, hosted in Aurora Museum from February 17th to April 17th 2012 during which 570 jewels coming both from the Maison’s archives and private collections will be presented: this is a further stage of an international tour which opened in Rome in 2009, moved to the Grand Palais in Paris in 2010 and then onto Beijing just before Shanghai's exhibition.
