Born in Chiari, Lombardy, this Italian recognized his affinity towards pots and ladles quite early in life, when he was all of 14 years of age. After 5 years of rigorous study in the culinary academy of Gardone Riviera, his first assignment was with Zucca Restaurant as assistant to the sous chef. From there, he travelled through Italy and various other countries gathering valuable knowledge and wooing palates along the way.
What brought him to being a chef? “My grandmother and my mother! The dedication and passion with which they made food have been the most inspiring lessons of my life.” A gourmand by habit, he loves exploring new cuisines and lives to eat.
Chef Marco plans to bring in more varieties of traditional Italian flavors ranging from the north to the south of Italy, as well as classic presentations that have never been brought to the Indian table before.
