Culinary
irony.

A key figure
among a new
generation of
italian chefs.

He often
describes his
kitchen as
'Traditional seen from
ten miles away'.
Breaking
the rules.

Tradition
juxtaposed
with a dose
of irreverence.
Art and
cooking.

Massimo Bottura
engages with
art, music,
literature and
pop culture.
Inviting
surprise.

Each plate is a
reconstruction
of an idea,
a memory,
a play on words
or a wry smile
rendered into
a singular
gesture.

His
conceptual
approach to
cooking reflects
this exchange
of ideas.
