"For me, cooking is concreteness, the same that I put every day outside and inside my kitchen.
I teach to my brigade all my slow cooking recipes at low temperature, because I strongly believe that the kitchen is a stage, where the skill of the actors counts more than the beauty of the scenes and where each actor acts according to times established and well dictated by the director .
It is essential to combine the different flavors with experience and professionalism. The well-decorated dishes satisfy the eyes, but the savory dishes paired with a good wine satisfy the eyes and taste. "
