Culinary Journey

Amare Roma Pasta Festival at Nest in Howard Johnson Hotel, Bangalore.

June 30, 2016

As soon as we hear Italian Cuisine, pasta comes to our mind. There are different varieties of Pasta in the World. However, very few of them are popular and accessible. There are Pastas like Acini di Pepe, Anelli, Angel Hair, Bucatini, Campanelle, Fideo and so many are visible only if there is any specific festival. I was recently invited to the Exclusive preview of Amare Roma Pasta Festival at Nest in Howard Johnson Hotel, Bangalore. It’s a tribute to Pasta and it’s time to explore pasta from different regions of Italy and fall in love, all over again! The festival rejoices a connoisseur’s love in principle of the beloved dish of the Italians, pasta, the sign of the republic. A voyage across Italy visiting well-known epicurean havens like Naples and Sicily, the menu contains of pastas from lesser-known regions of Genoa and Veneto. Organized for the epicurean pasta lover in Bangalore, the menu has been designed by Howard Johnson Bengaluru executive Chef Dev Bose.



Howard Johnson is one of the good Business hotels in Bangalore and a hub for most of the emigrants. The hotel is in strategic location, where Manyata Tech Park is less than a Kilometer. Though it’s a small hotel compare to others in Bangalore. But, never compromised in providing a best hospitality & service to guests! Nest at Howard Johnson or Hojo is again well known All Day dining restaurant. The place where packed with high class corporate crowd and business people. The restaurant has a contemporary and classy décor, which gives a pleasant dining experience to every diner. However, they could have done something better to showcase about Amare Roma Pasta Festival to make the place even attractive. I got an opportunity to try some of the authentic and fusion Italian dishes as part of the exclusive tasting! A preset menu was curated by Chef along with some finest wines. I feel Wine goes perfectly well with Italian cuisine.

I tried Amuse Bouse, Fritadi Olive, Mediterranean Vegetables, Ravioli Carbonara, Ratatouille, Milanzane di parmigiana, Mix Berry Parafait and Tiramisu. It was a unforgettable experience with some authentic Italian food. It was well organized and took every step carefully with respect to preparing these dishes!


Guests can also enjoy such gourmand favorites such as the Four Cheese Pasta, Pasta Carbonara, Gnocchi with Tomato Sauce, Pasta Con Pomodoro E Basilico, Home-Style Baked Pasta, Ravioli with Coconut Milk & Lemongrass, Whole Wheat Pasta in Mushroom Sauce, Spaghetti Bolognese, Lasagna, Penne Ala Vodka.
