An Italian Experience with Michelin-Starred Chef Marcello Fabbri Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur Hotel presents Marcello Fabbri a Michelin-Starred Chef.

Marcello Fabbri (born 1970 in Rimini) gained his first experience at the age of 9 working in the kitchen of his Aunt Maria’s hotel in Rimini. Marcello has been fascinated with food since this young age, when he would help his aunt in the kitchen of her small hotel. The Italian quickly acquired a taste for the culinary arts and at the tender age of 13 he resolved to make a career out of his passion for cooking and began training at Rimini’s state catering school. Following his passion, Marcello enrolled the cooking school and graduated at the top of his class. After his day classes, Marcello would work at Rimini’s finest restaurant - the “Caffè delle Rose” under Chef Gino Angelini, today well-known as the best Italian chef in Los Angeles. Marcello followed periods in Milan under Chef Gualtiero Marchesi, in Sardinia and in Munich under Chef Mario Gamba, who was in the process of opening two first-class Italian restaurants.

From the Bavarian capital, Marcello moved to Weimar’s historic Hotel Elephant in October 1993. In his capacity as chef at the Anna Amalia Restaurant, he soon made a name for himself in gourmet cuisine circles, the Anna Amalia establishing itself as the top gourmet restaurant in the eastern part of the enlarged German Federation. “Der Feinschmecker” magazine included the Amalia on its list of ten best foreign restaurants in Germany (FFFF), the “Gault Millau” gourmet's guide gave Marcello’s cuisine an outstanding 16 points and the Michelin Guide has thirteenth in succession awarded Marcello Fabbri and his team one of its coveted Michelin stars. In 2007, he was awarded as one of the yearly “Star Chefs” by Lufthansa and he exclusively created menus for Lufthansa First Class passengers.

During his twenty years of professional career at Anna Amalia Restaurant, he has served some prominent guests, including German Chancellor Schroder, Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin, the Belgian and Luxembourgian royal couple, past President of Italy Oscar Luigi Scalfaro and American singer Jennifer Lopez.

Although hailing from Thuringia, in the middle of Germany, Marcello Fabbri is a true Italian chef. He proudly claims that his signature dish is Risotto, and his cooking principle is 'Italian Simplicity.'

Marcello Fabbri has always been driven by his natural curiosity for food, cooking and discovering international flavours, and it is obvious that this dynamic young chef is living and sharing his life's passion every time he steps into the kitchen. With Marcello being in the kitchen, it seems nothing would go wrong!

When he is not pursuing his love of cooking, Marcello enjoys his time collecting Bonsai trees and diving.
