La Cucina

The Chef’s objective is making balanced food with an well considered combination of ingredients. It’s a way of cooking where‘mighty’ ingredients as butter, cream, heavy sauses are replaced by vegetable bouillon, olive oil and other less aggravating but tasty products. The cooking technics are focused on keeping the products as nutritious as possible and displaying the essention of every product in his food. The chef’s target is a good but simple presentation. We work with ‘olio extra vergine’ from Puglia and Umbria.
