Doha, September 10, 2014 (STAT):- - Qatar Duty Free (QDF) celebrated the official opening of the new Italian “al fresco” style restaurant, Soprafino, at Hamad International Airport (HIA) with celebrity chef and partner, Massimo Capra. “We are incredibly honoured that Chef Capra was able to join us for this inaugural event,” says Senior Vice President, Keith Hunter, Qatar Duty Free. “It has been a real pleasure working with Massimo to create this world-class Italian dining concept, which raises the bar to a new level and further enhances our passengers’ experiences at HIA. This dining destination has been developed and designed by us with the passenger foremost in mind,” he adds. Well-known for his simple and uncomplicated approach to classic Italian cuisine, which is executed with a sense of flair and fun, the chef always adds a contemporary twist to traditional dishes such as his signature tagliatelle bolognese, risotto and pizza. The menu at Soprafino embodies core Italian family values and children are made very welcome at this friendly, family restaurant. “Since my arrival in Toronto in 1982, I have been on this amazing and wonderful path of being able to share my passion with so many people across Canada.
