Ligurian heritage of taste at the Hotel Bristol Palace
Liguria boasts a heritage of taste and unique recipes, as the manager of the Bristol Palace Hotel Giovanni Ferrando is well aware. It’s he who is our guide today as he explains to journalist Savina Confaloni how the Bristol offers guests and visitors a true cross-section of this food and wine tradition. Everything revolves around the Ristorante Giotto, decorated with wall and ceiling frescoes. Like the rest of the palazzo in which the hotel is housed, it exudes an amazingly refined and timeless art-nouveau atmosphere. Here it is possible to choose from menus that blend the smells of the sea and the countryside, featuring the fresh catch of the day, PDO pesto sauce and traditional pasta shapes in the most typical Genoese recipes, prepared with prime-quality seasonal ingredients. Plus, the wine list is specially designed to enhance all these flavours. Both lunch and dinner may be ordered à la carte – what better way to learn about Liguria than through the senses.
