Sicilian Food Festival

Elia Russo as guest in Lucerne

The Sicilian Food Festival starts on September 23, 2021 at the Hotel Schweizerhof in Lucerne. The star chef of the partner hotel Villa Neri, Elia Russo, does us the honor and lets our palates enjoy a touch of Sicily.


Elia Russo combines technical excellence with respect for local ingredients. He creatively reproduces Sicilian local recipes, creating an incredible variety of experiments and combinations. In Italy, Elia Rosso is already in the "Guida Identità Golose" and is also mentioned in the Michelin Guide. Elia Russo's guest chef menu will subsequently be on the menu of the Galerie and Pavillon restaurants at the Hotel Schweizerhof Lucerne until the end of the year.

After his visit to Lucerne, Elia Rosso will travel on to the Hotel Savoy Baur en Ville in Zurich (Sept. 28 & 29, 2021) and serve his delicacies at the Restaurant Orsini. Then it's up to Stoos for the last stop on his tour on Oct. 1 & 2, 2021. Enjoy Sicilian dolce vita in Lucerne. Treat your taste buds to a vacation in Sicily. Buon appetito!
