new menu options, chef Andrea Montella has said.
''Cooking is an art that needs gifted talents and skills as well as an epicurean sense and that is why I came to Emirates Palace to offer a new creative cuisine through the award winning "Mezzaluna" .
 I am crafting a new delicious menu of Italian food which will be offered to the hotel guests after the month of Ramadan in the sensational and unique ambiance of Mezzaluna'' , he said.
 
''I will dedicate my long rich experience of 30 years in New York, London, Paris, Brazil, Thailand, Middle East and Italy to make the Emirates Palace the best provider of Italian food and deliver the very highest standards of culinary expertise and service,''he added.
 
''The appeal of Italian food lies in its simplicity, high quality and healthy ingredients of tomato, fresh vegetables, olive oil, wheat, eggplant which make the dish more balanced and satisfy the body’s needs,''he explained.
He ruled out that natural Italian pastries could cause diabetes. They are made up of items that are useful for a well balanced healthy diet especially the olive oil and tomato. We need about 120g of carbohydrate daily to keep the average body fit and healthy.
