Your Sources of Inspiration?
The first source of inspiration comes from great People, and so from all the ones who demonstrated that impossible means just not discovered. Therefore, inspiration luckily comes from more situations that you can actually image, but you have to see things, not just to look at them. This is the way in which I try to build everything in my life: a scientific approach to things putting the heart of an artist.
What is your idea of Pleasure?
Pleasure in my Idea of life is quite easy to understand. I would say a good porchetta’s panino, a Krug Rosè and a Good looking girl. Each one of those are excellent taken one by one, but all together are unforgettable. What could be better?
Your ultimate dream meal?
It would start first of all with an aperitif of mozzarella di Bufala with some drops of extra virgin oil. The main course couldn’t be something different from a pizza prepared by Ciro Oliva (Mergellina, Naples), finishing with a traditional Babà.
Who to share your dream dinner with?
Without any doubts with Leonardo Da Vinci. The most eclectic human being that our earth ever hosted. The diligence of a scientist and the heart of an artist. I would like to see the world from his eyes. For sure, we will have an orchestra with us, 164ème édition I’d say.
What is your Culinary obsession?
The idea of perfection is what has always obsessed me. Not the natural idea to combine together all the elements of balance. Absolutely not, that is a technical aspect. The perfection is to give a culinary orgasm with the easiest thing! A perfect fried egg is the only way to make me fall in love.
What makes you a Krug Lover?
The eclectic soul of Krug is what makes me a Krug Lover. Technically perfect, always able to give pleasure! Not just a tasty pleasure though. If you listen to a song while you are drinking Krug you will feel it in the air. However, the most important thing is the fact that in all the happiest moments of my life people changed depending on the situation, the bottle in the ice never.
