Overseeing the culinary creations is Emiliano Bernasconi, Executive Chef of Niccolo Suzhou, who has devoted himself to international hospitality for more than 27 years, earning him rich professional knowledge and deep management experience.
Chef Emiliano was born and grew up in Italy. Prior to joining Niccolo Suzhou, he worked with many luxury hotels, including The Armani Hotel in Dubai and Milan, and at Four Seasons and Shangri-La hotels, where his career took him to London, Dubai, Milan, Bangkok and Shanghai. He also worked as the Director of Culinary & Operation at Lebua Hotels and Resorts Bangkok in Thailand, where the “Mezzaluna” restaurant was awarded two Michelin stars under his direction.
He was also Director of Culinary at Armani Hotel Milan, where “Ristorante” was awarded a Michelin star.
In addition to his deep insight into cooking and a wealth of experience in culinary techniques, Emiliano also has a unique understanding of creative food presentation.
He draws inspiration from his experiences and believes in presenting the authentic tastes of food, which come from the quality of the ingredients. He believes that the essence and spirit of good food lies in willingness to experiment and pay attention to detail, and careful preparation of the very finest ingredients which will result in memorable culinary experiences.
The signature dishes at Niccolo Kitchen include some of Chef Emiliano’s Italian classics as well as some Asian favourites from Chinese chef Alan Bi.
Inspired by local ingredients, this tasty pizza is meticulously prepared with caviar, Mascarpone cheese, buffalo cheese, crab meat, lemon and spinach.
Lobster Spaghetti All’astice
The recipe for this luxurious dish was developed by Chef Emiliano 25 years ago and has always been his signature. The main ingredients include whole fresh Canadian lobster, garlic bread crumbs and fresh celery.
When Emiliano started his career as an intern, he was starving after a busy lunch service. He used a few prawn pieces and spaghetti with some anchovy sauce which were the only ingredients left in the kitchen to prepare a pasta and the taste was unexpectedly scrumptious. After that, he twisted the recipe with the sauce made of anchovies, garlic and sunflower seed oil to create this Lobster Pasta with unique its unique flavour and exquisite presentation.
Exclusively sourced from the legendary Stanbroke in Queensland, Australia, this Wagyu M4/5 Tomahawk Steak is aged for 30 days and is incredibly tender and succulent. After being grilled and stilled to maintain its fresh taste and seasoned with special sea salt, it is a guaranteed flavourful indulgence for your taste buds.
Niccolo Kitchen Sliced Peking Duck
Sourced from a farm in Qingyuan, Guangdong Province, this aromatic duck is pickled with more than 30 ingredients by Niccolo’s Chinese chef Alan Bi. After a series of meticulous operations, including hanging, drying and oven baking, the dish will be immediately delivered to the guest's table, accompanied by hand-made pancakes and a delicious house-made sauce.
Tiramisu is a very traditional Italian dessert, which is made of Mascarpone cheese, finger biscuits, Mashala white wine and coffee. Chef Emiliano improves the recipe and transforms it into the shape of coffee beans, paired with an espresso smoothie and resulting in a rich and lingering taste with the aroma of coffee.
