FOUNDER, EXECUTIVE CHEF
A Structural Engineer and Architect by training, Matteo has lived in Italy, France and Singapore. Besides his studies and career, for years, Matteo has been cooking, hosting and sharing his table with friends and acquaintances until deciding to follow his dreams and turn his passion into his career.
For Matteo, a meal evokes the values he learned as a child around the big family table in Italy: the love for nature and for people, for those simple gestures which have the power of making us feel accomplished. There are many memories in his food. Memories are the starting point of his cuisine, should it be remembering a dish, a cooking technique, a flavour or just a product. His dishes are rooted in the Italian and French traditions but speak of the fusion of cultures, being influenced by exotic ingredients and diverse cooking techniques. Matteo believes when you cook you are telling your story: the story of your life, of the places you have lived in, of the people you have met all along the way. If memories are the starting point of his food, craftsmanship is the core of his approach. To him, the hands are the most important tool a cook has, to transform and enhance a product, to create. He approaches food with curiosity using techniques to enhance flavours and aim for perfection.
He says “Cooking is closer to architecture than we could think; each is just a different application of artistic skill and scientific knowledge, all starting from your experience of the world.”
