Meet a trio of chefs Fabio Ciervo, Iside De Cesare & Angelo Musa

October 12, 2018

For our latest Veuve Clicquot gourmet dinner (October 24), at Hotel Eden’s La Terrazza restaurant, we have a trio of talented chefs working away to bring you an exceptional menu. Ahead of this event, here’s a little taster.

Meet chef Fabio Ciervo

Our executive chef at La Terrazza has a strong food philosophy based on the five pillars of: innovation, wellness, ingredients, taste and art. His creativity shines through with delicious flavours and health conscious ingredients, which have earned him a well-deserved Michelin star.


For the gourmet event I’ve chosen to serve my crab extract and coffee. It’s a dish that represents my constant research into making the most of bold and distinctive flavours. This dish is a particular favourite of mine, as it stirs emotions and brings back memories of my childhood.

Meet chef Iside De Cesare

Iside Maria De Cesare was born in Rome so it’s wonderful that she’s returning to the city to cook at La Terrazza. Her Michelin-starred La Parolina restaurant, which she runs with her husband, Romano Gordini, specialises in locally sourced produce.


I’ll be cooking lavaret, served with sour cream and beetroot sauce. It’s a typical freshwater fish from Lake Bolsena in northern Lazio, where my restaurant is located. My second dish is cappelletti with Cinta Senese pork with brown butter and truffle, another wonderful way to showcase local flavours.

Meet chef Angelo Musa

As the executive head pastry chef at Hôtel Plaza Athénée in Paris, we’re delighted to be working with Angelo Musa. The former World Pastry Champion, and winner of the highly-acclaimed Meilleurs Ouvriers de France, has an enviable reputation for giving classic desserts a fresh twist.


Staying true to my passion for natural produce, enticing aromas and contrasting textures, I’ve enjoyed working with chef Fabio Ciervo for this gourmet event. Together we’ve created a hazelnut gold nugget dessert as the finale to a beautifully constructed menu.
