PUNE, 2nd February 2024 – NUVO proudly announces the introduction of Itameshi cuisine to the vibrant city of Pune. Originating from the post-World War II era, Itameshi is a unique culinary gem that intertwines the rich traditions of Japanese and Italian cuisines, creating a distinctive and delectable fusion.

The cuisine emerged in the aftermath of the war when Japanese society encountered a wave of Western cultural influences. European soldiers, serving as ambassadors of their rich heritage, introduced the Japanese locals to various aspects of their culture, including the tantalizing world of Italian cuisine. This marked the beginning of a culinary fusion that would later be known as Itameshi.

Driven by curiosity and a deep-rooted commitment to their culinary traditions, the Japanese embraced this new influence, embarking on a journey of flavour exploration with Western ingredients and cooking techniques. The result was a harmonious fusion of Japanese and Italian culinary elements, creating a distinctive and evolving gastronomic landscape.

“It is with immense pride that we bring Itameshi cuisine to Pune, a city known for its appreciation of diverse culinary experiences. Our dedication to the fusion of flavours in Itameshi is a tribute to the resilience and adaptability of the Japanese people, showcasing how history has shaped our appreciation of diverse culinary influences. NUVO’s commitment to delivering a unique dining experience is reflected in every aspect of our Itameshi offerings, from the carefully sourced ingredients to the thoughtful adaptation of century-old recipes,” says General Manager, Supreet Roy of Sheraton Grand Pune Bund Garden Hotel.
