NEVER TRUST A SKINNY ITALIAN CHEF
My name is Massimo Bottura. I am an Italian chef born in Modena. I grew up under the kitchen table.
As my grandmother Ancella rolled out the pasta dough,
I hid under from my older brothers with flour falling on my feet.
At Osteria Francescana we look at the world with the eyes of a child,
from under the table and upside down.
Everything we see, think and feel is compressed into our cuisine.
TOGETHER WE ARE THE REVOLUTION
In 2016, together with my wife Lara Gilmore, we founded FOOD FOR SOUL, a cultural project to empower communities, to rescue food otherwise discarded and to fight social isolation.
In the past eight years, we have supported the creation of 12 Refettorio in 9 countries, with still more to come.
Every day, in our Refettorio we can create the change we want to see in the world, one meal at a time.
Together we are the revolution!
