It is necessary to use grandiose words when speaking of Gualtiero Marchesi. He is probably the most important chef the Italy has ever offered to international culinary history.

He is truly impassioned by the fine arts; architecture, sculpture and painting mark his work in a notable fashion. For him, the kitchen has been a canvas to express sharp, intellectual beauty onto: riso, gold and saffron; open ravioli; black squid in its ink; Diritti (straight) spaghetti ; Marchesi extravagance; beet risotto… and the list goes on. One of the most recent creations dates to 2005: “dripping di pesce”. A painting inspired by Jackson Pollock in which he restores and reinvents mayonnaise in honor of the dwarf calamari and coquina clams. It is an explosion of gastronomic color: liquid yellow mayonnaise, liquid green mayonnaise of chlorophyll, tomato sauce, black sauce of squid ink, calamari and coquina clams: traditional flavors, sauces with amazing body and an impacting artistic beauty.
