Massimo Bottura is the chef patron of three Michelin-starred restaurant, Osteria Francescana in Italy and an ambassador of modern Italian cuisine. His kitchen is full of compelling contradictions: it is both traditional and conceptual; it is deceivingly minimalist in its presentation and yet full of complex flavours, textures and cultural references to art, literature and history. Massimo Bottura creates real works of art through his food.
His career began in 1986 with apprenticeships under culinary masters like Georges Coigny and Alain Ducasse at Hotel de Paris Montecarlo, forming a foundation of regional Italian cooking and classical French training. The accolades then started to tumble onto chef Bottura’s culinary CV when, in 1995 Bottura opened his Osteria Francescana, where he was free to combine his indisputable talent with his creativity.
Three Michelin stars and secondplace ranking in the World’s 50 Best Restaurants, Chef Bottura’s gastronomic aptitude is at the forefront of modern Italian cuisine. He freely shares his creative process and his respect for the best ingredients.
Massimo Botturawill be at Mirazur with Mauro Colagreco on October 27th for thespectucular finale dinner.
