A great success: at the Park Hotel & Terme Romantica the research after the culinary tradition of our territory has been steadily carried out with passion and expertise. Thanks to our rich history the cooking art still shows its solid creativity as well as its balance, so appreciated all over the world. As for each branch of creativity also gastronomy develops in time by absorbing new tastes and trends and enriching itself of new ingredients; as a result, it succeeds in giving new smells and revising the ones already known.
So, many important recipes of the local and regional food tradition enjoy the Fusion restyling, a new gastronomy tendency that binds tradition with nouvelle cuisine.
Furthermore, a careful research for high quality ingredients makes these recipes absolutely tasteful while ensuring excellent nutritional characteristics, thanks also to the skill of our chef Francesco Mattera, president of the Associazione Cuochi dell'Isola d'Ischia (Chefs Association of the Ischia Island) whom was conferred the title of Collegium Cocorum on. Having also a significant value from an historical point of view, this title characterised in the ancient Rome the Emperor's Chef.
Italian cuisine is undoubtedly one of the most appreciated cuisines in the world thanks to its richness and variety that was steadily influenced over the centuries by contributions from successive populations coming to our land including Greeks, Etruscans, Arabs, Normans, Austrians, Spaniards. These cultural inputs together with the influence of our diverse environment and climate as well as our geopolitical history have led to typical regional varieties. In summary, the distinguishing marks of Italian cuisine, including the great regional varieties, are founded upon the distinctive Mediterranean foods and styles of eating.
Over the last years the interest for gastronomy and enology has significantly increased; as a result numerous associations are re-discovering and safeguarding the Italian regional traditions (for example Slow Food and the Accademia Italiana della Cucina [Italian Academy of Cuisine]).
Many believe that, thanks to a mostly vegetarian nutrition with a low level of fats and animal proteins, it is possible to prevent the most common health conditions of the industrialised world as well as to enjoy a general psycho-physical wellbeing. Among the most important vegetarian food there are cereals, vegetables, pulses, olive oil and fruit.
Nowadays such nutrition principles are also known as “natural diet”, i.e. the same concepts of the Mediterranean diet. Those who prefer this philosophy are welcome at the Romantica Hotel: to this purpose we are pleased to offer at every meal several vegetarian dishes.
We are proud to guarantee a safe and high quality diet also for those who suffer from gluten intolerance. From the breakfast up to the desserts we exclusively use gluten-free ingredients for our celiac friends. Our food & beverage managers as well as our staff steadily update their expertise by means of the Celiac National Association and the regional web sites in order to offer our Guests an avant-garde and safe service.
