PORTRAIT OF A CHEF IN THREE DISHES - ANDREA ANTONINI

ANDREA ANTONINI RESEARCH AND… FIRE Born in 1991, Andrea Antonini "schooled" in the best Roman avant-garde kitchens and then in Spain by the Roca family and again by Enrico Crippa from whom he took his love for vegetables. Having recently landed on the sixth floor of the Hotel Hassler in Rome, he is one of the most talented young Italian chefs. «Mine - he explains - can only be defined as patriotic cuisine! I create cuisine based on research and construction, linked to the purity of flavours: few, but all rigorously recognisable and conceived to express pure pleasure. And highly personal."
